Quinta do Ameal "Solo Único" Loureiro '17

As many of you know we have been championing Pedro Araujo’s wines for several years. His beautiful property, Quinta do Ameal is located in Refoios do Lima in Northern Portugal. Part of the Vinho Verde region, these aren’t your typical spritzy low alcohol white wines. Rather they are classic white wines, with a focus on making wines entirely from the Loureiro varietal. The wines are great in their youth, but also have the capability of aging for many years.  

“Solo Único” stays true to the Ameal form. 100% Loureiro, grown organically in the granitic soils of the Lima Valley. Yet Araujo and his team treat this Loureiro differently than the others wines in the line-up. Fermentation occurs naturally, without temperature control. There is minimal use of sulphur, only a small amount a bottling.  One could say this is their "natural" bottling, as minimal intervention occurred throughout the vinification process.  The result is a truly beautiful, fresh white wine, full of that classic salty, mineral quality, vibrant citrus and ripe pear and apricot notes, and a long finish with great textural qualities.
