After a very bad experience with Vinho Verde, I drank my first sip with trepidation - it was a good sign that this wine is a pretty, light gold hue - which was dramatically different from my last foray into Vinho Verde.
This is a Portuguese white wine made with with Alvarino and Trajadura grapes. After tasting, I simply considered it grapefruit in a glass (which to me is a novelty, as with a kidney transplant, I am not allowed to have grapefruit - it interferes with my medications). This blend is tart, refreshing and has a slight mineralty with a crisp citrus taste. Auratus is easy to drink both with and without food. Serve well chilled and this is a solid, refreshing summer wine.
