Terra Antiga 2011 Vinho Verde

Chasing the sun has eluded me this week. While the bay area was springlike, I was in Chicago where the people and snacks are delightful but the weather is oh so frightful. Finally home enjoying the last rays of Friday sunlight with friends waiting for the SF fog to roll in, I was glad to have grabbed a sample of Terra Antica. Perfect choice since half the people couldn't decide between beer and wine. A pale gold color, the wine has aromas of citrus, apple and a hint of bread dough. The spritziness was fun. It even foamed up. The flavors were subtle with a nice hint of bitter in the finish. Add some conversation and you have the perfect pair.  Since the wine retails for only $9, you'll have plenty leftover to go find some sushi!
