Chin Chin! Shares the name with one of my favourite, loudest restaurants in Sydney - and this is equal amounts party - glug away!
From The Natty Boy
Has to be the wine of Covid-19 - this is made for the guys from Noble Rot and has graced pretty much every good wine list in London this past (interrupted) year. It's made by Quinta do Ermizio from Arinto and Loureira. Vinho Verde is the name of what's considered Portugal's second most famous wine region (although arguably becoming more important in terms of mass appeal) following the Douro - famous for Port production. It's located in the far north of Portugal, on the Atlantic coast and is generally at the mercy of Atlantic weather conditions. When we think of Portugal we generally think hot and summery, but up here it's really wet and windy at times, and the winds are cold. Vinho Verde as a wine style means Green Wine/Young Wine in reference to the speed of production. Ferments are fast, and the wine bottled for freshness and vitality. Chin Chin is fermented naturally, bottled unfined and unfiltered and with a bit of trapped CO2 in the bottle which gives the lovely freshness (and very light spritz sensation).
