Adega Ponte de Lima Loureiro Colheita Seleccionada 2021

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 loureiro comes from Lima's granitic sandy loams, and underwent some skin contact before a cooler ferment, and 3 months aging on lees. Tight, light, and lean, with a noticable spritz livening green apple, white peach blossoms, elderflower, grapefruit peel, and lime rind. This is an early pick of loureiro, showing subtle hints of the grape's characteristic florality. Take now, with lighter Thai curry or vegetarian dishes.Tasted: 27 May 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: ON 16.00 Producer: Adega Ponte de LimaGrape: Loureiro
