Tasting Notes
This racy Vinho Verde was the somewhat unexpected star of our recent Portuguese tasting, it outsold all the wines that evening. Coming from a vineyard planted with old Loureiro Vines, only a stones throw from the Atlantic, the leaves of the vines are often dusted with the salt from the sea air imparting a definite salty tang to this really attractive wine. Loureiro, along with Alvarinho, is one of the premium grapes grown here and is also grown in Galicia in Spain. Very attractive green apple freshness and zippy acidity, mineral salty notes and low alcohol, only 11%, make this a lovely summer aperitif or a perfect accompaniment to shellfish.
