Total revelation for me -- had no idea Loureiro could be so interesting. Great balance, alcohol just right, 4 months on the lees gives it some oomph and texture.

Extremely pleasant Loureiro from Vinho Verde. Bio-dynamic.
Citrus, stone fruit, stony minerality

Surprisingly complex for price. Honeysuckle, lychee, minerality, salinity.

Vino Verde all grown up! This smells like a tropical vacation. Heaps of different fruits - citrus, stone, melon and tropical all there. Wet stone paired with slight creaminess and traces of vanilla. Palate does not disappoint, bringing lemon curd, green apple, cantaloupe, papaya, all with great texture, M+ acid and zero heat (sitting at a perfect 11.5). Still wine, no fizz like other VVs, but a porch pounder none the less!

Clear & clean, light golden. A vinho verde DOC - 4 months aged on yeast & biodynamic. Citrus, Vanilla, shale on the nose. Asian apple, spritzy on the palate and lingering finish. Very interesting and refreshing

It's impossible to not be lured by these aromatics. The meyer lemon sweet-tartness, hints of white flowers and a #mineral backbone carry through to the palate for fantastic crowd-pleasing drinkability.
