Vinho Verde

Quinta do Ameal Loureiro '17

One of our favorite white wine values from Portugal has returned. Loureiro is one of the classic grape varietals of the Vinho Verde region in Northern Portugal. It is at its best in the Lima Valley, and specifically near the oldest village in Portugal, Ponte de Lima.  Pedro Araújo has become one of the top white wine producers in Portugal. His grandfather was the famed Adrian Ramos Pinto (Ramos Pinto Port!), and his father purchased the Ameal property in Refóios do Lima after the sale of the Port house.  Since that time, the property has been lovingly restored, and Pedro has dedicated himself to producing a wine that goes beyond what people normally think of Vinho Verde.  Ameal is really about Loureiro, and their 2017 is such a beautiful example. Organic viticulture, low yields, all grown in the classic granite of the region.  The nose on the 2017 jumps out of the glass, with beautiful grapefruit, lemon peel and mineral notes. Vibrant and incredibly refreshing on the palate, this is a wine that really makes you salivate.  You can have a glass on its own, but it also pairs perfectly with shellfish.
