Overview of the Wine
The Quinta da Lixa is a living testament to the passion that the Meireles family has always had for Vinho Verde.
This grower sold most of its grapes to cooperatives until 1986, when it set up a small firm, and this became what is now known as the Quinta da Lixa - Sociedade Agrícola, Lda.
At first the wines produced were sold in bulk, but it soon became clear that their quality and popularity was such that estate bottling was required.
Produced by the noted winemaker, Carlos Teixeira (Quinta da Lixa) - these wines are now stunningly fresh - bright - aromatic - light - sizzling - and did I say fresh?
Grape / Blend
35% Loureiro, 35% Arinto and 30% Trajadura
Alcohol - 9.5%
Bright and citrusy, due to its natural acidity. With dominant apple and grapefruit aromas and a splash of green, herby notes, SOL REAL brings the fun and the flavor.
Absolutely the perfect wine for a hot summer day - a brunch - a sit around the pool - a bucket of ice
90 Points - Ian Blackburn
Bright and citrusy, zesty fresh and slight effervescence. The net result is almost dry and has really clean and pointed natural acidity. Apple, sage, grapefruit aromas with a splash of savory and herb salad. So good with hummus! I want a salad from Mizlala West Adams—one of the great restaurants for Mediterranean pickup.
