Charming, tangy, crisp.
For the second year running this wine has fallen into my TOP 100.
It is a fresh white made from the Loureiro variety, which is classic to the Vinho Verde region of Portugal.
It offers a nose of honey/beeswax, white melon, lemon oil, golden apples undertones of mineral, lanolin and vague hints wildflowers. The palate is tangy and loaded with citrus and mineral with glimpses of white fruits. A clean, crisp wine, both straightfoward and focused.
Pair: fish, soft-medium cheeses and citrus and herb dressings.
