Ameal, Loureiro 2021, Vinho Verde, Portugal

Tasting Note: A bright, fresh vinho verde done in the style that is characteristic of the region.

Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of green pear, green apple, chalk and white blossom with hints of lime.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied vinho verde has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus-acidity and completing with a lime-citrus, medium finish.

The wine is straightforward and good in its dimension.

A solid vinho verde.
