Quinta do Ameal, Loureiro '18

Vinho Verde

Quinta do Ameal, Loureiro '18

Not only is this an incredible value, it is one of Portugal's very best white wines.

For many years we have been ardent supporters of Pedro Araújo and his winery Quinta do Ameal.

The winery is located in the Lima Valley within the large and often misunderstood region of Vinho Verde. Pedro's father purchased this property in 1990, discovering it while on a motorcycle trip with friends. Not only did he fall in love with the property, but it gave him and his son a new opportunity after they had recently sold their Port house, the famed Ramos Pinto. 

By 1992 the first vines were planted and then in 1999 the first release of a white wine made from 100% Loureiro. This was not to be your typical Vinho Verde, the Araújo's didn't even want to be associated with the often innocuous, lightly spritzy version that sells for just a few dollars. Instead they would give Loureiro the treatment it deserves. Lower yields, sustainable farming, all with the idea that Loureiro can be complex, reflective of the yellow granite of the Lima Valley and even develop in bottle. 

The 2018 Ameal Loureiro marks its 19th vintage. It is as good as ever. Always with beautiful aromas, this shows off Loureiro's floral notes, along with citrus and mineral. The 2018 has a touch more weight than the previous vintage, yet at only 12% alcohol, this still shows great vibrancy and cut. A great match for shellfish, from oysters to shrimp, this is the ideal partner. 

We highly encourage our customers to purchase a case or cases, especially at this one time special price. This is a wine that can evolve in bottle, gaining in complexity. So a case for now, and a case for later. Drink now through 2027+.
