A marca Beach Ball wine da Quinta da Lixa é provada e aprovada num programa da especialidade.
Vinho Verde is a region, a wine and a style of wine. It translates to "green wine," though it is green only in the sense of being young, as Vinho Verde can be red or white, and in a Portuguese restaurant the term often refers simply to the younger wines on the wine list. The demarcated Vinho Verdes, however, come from north-west Portugal. The white Vinho Verdes are strongly acidic, usually with a prickle of fizz, and are best drunk young and chilled.
Quinta da Lixa is one of the most revered white wine producers in Portugal. It is located in the Vinho Verde denomination in northern Portugal, in the small town of Lixa. The winery's holdings comprise 105 acres of top quality vineyards, spread out over six distinct properties. The vineyards are planted to Trajadura, Arinto, Loureiro, and Alvarinho, the traditional grape varietals of the region and the four varieties used in Beach Ball Vinho Verde.
The grapes are hand-picked at harvest to ensure only the finest fruit makes it to the winery, then fermented in stainless steel vats. The resulting wine is light, fresh, and fruity, with an attractive mineral quality to it and a distinct spritz as well. The unique combination of grapes used in Beach Ball Vinho Verde offer body and balance not found in a single varietal.
The alcohol content is relatively low at 9.5%, making it refreshing and lower in calories than many of its peers.
Beach Ball is one of several wines produced by Quinta da Lixa. They put together the finest growers of Vinho Verde with importers that have a deep understanding of the wine market in the US. The result is a wine that represents a beautiful alternative to Pinot Grigio, for those wine consumers interested in something new and different. This is an exciting and enticing wine to go with fun foods like cheese spreads and crab dips.
