Pessoa Wines was born in 2009, when winemaker Jorge Gonçalves teamed up with the South African winery MAN Family Wines to launch a promising enterprise. Jorge trained as a winemaker in Germany at one of the most prestigious wine making programs in the world. Pessoa is a result of his revelation that he could combine modern technology of the New World with the elegance of the Old World.
The 2018 Pessoa Vinho Verde is sourced from vineyards mainly in the renowned zones of Monção and Melgaço in Portugal. It is dry, bright, light-bodied with excellent balance and lip-smacking acidity. On the palate you note green apple, white peach, melon, white flowers, and citrus. The finish is mineral-driven with a touch of sparkle. This will be your new Summer Sipper. Drink on its own or pair with salads, sushi or grilled shrimp.
