Everything in moderation, including fancy wine. This bottle comes to the rescue on that front! Not going to pretend this is a life-changing wine. But it is delicious, cheap, and for its category is surprisingly thoughtfully made. Say no more! I trust the importer on this one and so should you. Lovingly referred to as ‘the crab wine’ (for its adorable red crab on the label), this Vinho Rosé is a perfect porch pounder – low in alcohol, fizzy, and just sweet enough to keep it flowing.
