2019 Quinta do Ameal Bico Amarelo $12 - 89 Points

Medium yellow - dark for a wine from Vinho Verde, the aromas are a thrill ride of citrus, grass, and under-ripe tamarind. Shockingly supple in texture, this is more cerebral than attention-commanding. Round and soft, but with balanced acidity and a light-midweight body, it clocks in at a mere 11.5%, making for a versatile value.  40% Loureiro grapes from Quinta do Ameal, rounded out by 30% each of Alvarinho and Avesso.
