Portuguese word that's gone mainstream!

HOW ABOUT THAT a little Portuguese word that's gone mainstream!
I'm getting Goose bumps! Isn't it lovely when your hunch is right! Thinking about these wonderful Portuguese wine varieties or "castas" like "alvarinho" used in Vinho Verde.  My new favorite is "viognier" that has been smitten with the Alenquer terroir and is usually aged in both stainless steel and French oak for six months. 

I suddenly had an ah ha moment AND I was right - "The word caste is NOT a word that is indigenous to India. It originates From the Portuguese word casta which means race,breed, race or lineage."
