Adega Ponte de Lima Loureiro 2019

Vinhos Verde, Northern Portugal, PortugalPonte de Lima is the oldest town in Portugal, and home to this co-op, founded in 1959. It now has 2000 growers, and an 11.5M L production. This is entirely loureiro, from granitic sandy loams. Nimble and tight with lime pith, lime peel, crab apple, and Asian pear crunchiness to a shorter, snappy, sour finish. I wish this was under screwcap so it would be as fresh as it should be.Tasted: 06 December 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 16.00 Producer: Adega Ponte de LimaGrape: Loureiro
