So Good its Gone

My favorite tipple at the recent Peixe em Lisboa (Lisbon Fish & Flavours) an all Pescatarian’s annual April must visit Portuguese event – was this ever so good little one note Verdelho. This Domingos Soares Franco Private Collection Verdelho 2008 from JMF was literally so well liked by thirsty gourmets, chefs and discerning public that they literally drunk it dry at the Lisbon event and by the last day Sunday 18th April 2010 not a drop was to be had.

So if ever need a better recommendation to try a great white Portuguese wine take a tip from these picky European palates and track down a bottle ASP (as soon as possible or sooner) and pop its cork.

Check out the history of the Verdelho grape that has done a bit of a world walkabout, plus don’t do a double take when you find that some of Australia’s great white wines use the same grape variety.
