Wine EnthusiastNamed after the pheasant (Faisão), the wine is crisp enough to be refreshing. It is medium sweet and lightly textured with orange zest. Drink now.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Branco Faisão (Vinho Verde) is a blend of 50% Arinto, 30% Loureiro and 30% Trajadura. It comes in fizzy, with 15 grams per liter of residual sugar-semi-dry-and 10% alcohol. This handles its sugar well, the acidity cutting through it nicely and making it seem a bit drier than the numbers on sugar might suggest. It is a straightforward style, but it tastes good and is refreshing. It also has a touch of "stones" underneath as a flavor nuance. Overall, it drinks nicely. Drink it well-chilled this summer, and don't age it.
