This low-alcohol (9%) Vinho Verde carries some obvious residual sugar, which in this case works well. Some lively upfront spritz is replaced by a respectable smoothness on the finish. And the acid structure is just right, as it keeps things tangy and lively. With a seafood salad at lunch, this would work perfectly.
