Herdade do Esporao
Quinta do Ameal Solo Único 2020
Portugal / Vinho Verde
Andy's Tasting Notes
Produced from a site specific plot in Marejao on granitic soils, this has classic Loureiro hints of peach, citrus fruits and green apple that are counterbalanced by fresh minerality and zingy acidity. Super elegant and refined. Shows best when served with the freshest, simply prepared shellfish you can buy.
