Quinta do Ameal Loureiro 2019

Louro is the Atlantic coastal name for the Laurel, or Bay tree. Loureiro wines are floral and smell deeply of lemon and bay. The basic characteristic is a linear, racy and acidic wine with low levels of both grape sugar and phenolic material. After careful viticulture, winemaking is simple and tech-driven: low-cropped old vines are sorted twice (firstly to eliminate disease, then further selected for quality); whole grapes undergo penumatic pressing; must is cold-settled for 48 hours; a quite cool fermentation (max 15 degrees) takes place in stainless steel vats for 12-15 days; the wine is matured for 6 months in stainless steel. Over the past decade, organic and biodynamic viticulture has progressively added a deeper, richer, fragrant bay leaf character to the lemony precision of Pedro's outstanding crunch-yet-textured Loureiro white. - The Spanish Acquisition
