Sarah McCleery, The Oxford Times, 24th June 2011
"the great fun Raza Vinho Verde 2010 that comes in a vibrant, lime green bottle and smells and 
tastes and fresh and zippy as it looks. There's a touch of spritz on the palate and then a quite unexpected, 
‘chewy' pear-fruit palate. It was first in the flight and all I can say is that it made me smile — a lot.”



Stuart Pigott , "Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung", 8th May 2011
"Embodies the currently dominant vinho verde style. It smells of fresh herbs and ripe apples,
it is very racy but not all dust-dry. That makes it very animating and refreshing."
