Azal 2018

For $13.00 its a perfect summer time pour.
Winery & K&L notes as follows,

Incredibly hard to stop drinking. The lychee and mango nose is fantastic, but it's really the crunchy and tropical flavors on the finish that demand the next sip. BBQ's and pool parties could all use this juice. Soft and easy yet still mouthwatering, this is hedonism at its finest - Which is basically why we're all here, right
Located in the relatively warmer Basto sub-zone of the Vinho Verde, Quinta da Raza is making some delicious, original examples of Vinho Verde, exploring grape varieties beyond the usual array of grapes in the region. In this case, Azal is the second most widely planted varietal in Minho (Vinho Verde) region. It is unusual to see varietal bottling. This is a lip smacking wine, you can see that this varietal brings the zip to Vinho Verde blends. It is not all bracing with acidity; there are some expressive citrus and chilled tropical tones, minerality, and a faint fizz that the wines are famous for. A fun alternative to the classic blends from the region.

We exchanged notes on the K&L staff reviews. If they rave about a bottle, you can take their recco's to the bank.

Escolha Vinho Verde Loureiro Blend 2018

Dinner with a friend, brief notes this evening.

A very weighty Vinho Verde, color to boot also, all in concrete! Opened three days before we tasted.

60% Loureiro & 40% Pedernã, all Atlantic Coast vineyards.

48 Hour Update:
Nose has cold orange blossom, cut green table grapes, cold pineapple core and sliced white bread.
Palate has waxy yellow tropical fruits, orange-like acidity levels, tart green melon, minor oxidative traits with a long finish. Very impressive V-V!

@Aravind Asok We open enough wines? Lol, this was one of his sample bottles. But we actually finished nothing, so I hope up update all my super lousy notes today.
