Loureiro - 2017
Vinho Verde, Portugal
White, Aromatic, Dry
ABV: 11% Vol: 75cl
Floral, Fruity with a Zingy Finish
The ultimate Portuguese summer wine, Vinho Verde is a softly sparking, easy drinking wine that can be drank again and again...and then probably a few more times after that. This wine is superbly balanced with aromatic green apple, melon and white flowers on the nose and the palate is fresh white peach and apples with a lasting crisp finish. Drink now, drink fast, drink plenty!!
