Portuga 2007 White Wine

I have been interested in figuring out what kinds of wines I like, and what to buy. I just finished reading Robin Goldstein’s book The Wine Trials and wonder just how much I like a wine because of its price or label. Goldstein goes to great lengths to discuss how our enjoyment of wine is directly related to the price. I won’t spoil the book here, but he backs up his claims with research, both his own and that of others.

Portuga 2007 White Wine

Portuga 2007 White Wine

Wine name: Portuga 2007 White Wine

Origin: Portugal (Estremadura)

Cost: $8.75

Grapes: Arinto, Fermao Pires, and Vital (from label)

My thoughts: I liked the wine and think it would be best on a warm day. It smelled faintly of grass. It had no oaky smell at all, or cat pee smell, or other weird smells some white wines have. The taste was good, but not strong at all. It had a very short finish. I might buy this again.
