2019 Quinta do Ameal Loureiro $18 - 88 Points

Don't let the super bright platinum edges fool you, there's more to this Portuguese white than than meets the eye. First whiff has a bit of a working cellar odor, which quickly yields to a coy nose. Efficient and lean, this isn't as voluptuous or complex as other loureiros, but the clean lines, focused acidity, and unmistakable quality of fruit are easy to appreciate. Made of 100% loureiro estate-grown in the Vinho Verde region. Anyone thinking ahead to Thanksgiving should keep this versatile wine in mind. 88 Points (Sample)
