But this stunning bottle is temptation enough to buy! Luckily, the juice inside is delightfully drinkable too. Refreshing and zesty, with a slight touch of lively spritz on the palate, this light bodied blend has crisp citrus, mineral, green apple and a touch of sweet gooseberry and mild melon. A low alcohol content (9 percent) ups the quaffing quotient. Buy by the case, drink while fresh!Pair with a garden party – these colourful bottles can be prominently displayed as the artful centrepiece. Complement this lemony white with fresh, local shellfish or a citrus dressed salad.Vinho Verde [VEE-nyoh VEHR-deh] translates as “green wine”, referring not to the colour, but to the fresh youthfulness. Gazela is a blend of traditional Vinho Verde wine varietals – Loureiro, Pedernã, Trajadura and Azal.Rating: (click here to see what our wine ratings mean)PortugalWhite WineWine Reviews SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
