Quinta do Ameal Loureiro 2007

Quinta do Ameal Loureiro 2007Like much of Rias Briaxa, Vinho Verde had a very good quality vintage in 2007. This wine really shows it off, it’s vibrant and character filled but remains easy to drink and excellent with food. This is perfect for lazy sunday drinking, I have but this to the test a couple of times now…

The nose kicks things off well with aromas of peach, lemon, pineapple with a hit of apricot and grapefruit.  It’s lightly textured with some spritzy/minerally acid and big ‘ol finish.  Lively on the palate with plenty of tropical fruit with a bit of peach and apricot. Everything is in balance, nice and savoury with some sweet fruit.  A fun drink that you could take seriously if you wanted to. I’m buying a bunch of this for summer drinking in the backyard with some BBQ’d fish. 89 Pts
