Eponymously named after Bartholomew Broadbent, son of English wine critic Michael Broadbent, this Vinho Verde is produced from Loureiro, Trajadura and Arinto grapes sourced from contract growers. I purchased this wine, on sale, in a local supermarket for $5.70 a week ago - I noticed today that it was $6.99. Is it worth it? Yes, and no. I can procure a bottle of Gazela Vinho Verde for $3.99 in a different supermarket and it is actually a slightly better wine, so I'm going to stick with the Gazela, (as every time I drink it I am reminded of how much I like it). The Broadbent was very nice though.
