File this wine under porch pounder. This 1L bottle of Portuguese white feels like the fresh, saline Atlantic Ocean breeze that helps define the terroir of this wine-growing region. The Alta Onda wines are made by the A.C. Vermelha cooperative that combines the resources of small family vineyards averaging less than 1 hectare a piece. A blend of fernão pires, malvasia, and seara-nova, the wine shows lovely bursts of citrus fruit and crunchy granny smith apple. The wine is bottled young to capture a little CO2, so there is cheerful, light spritz upon opening. Think of this as Lisbon's delightful take on Vinho Verde (in this case 'Vinho Leve', or 'Light Wine').
