João Portugal Ramos Vinho Verde Loureiro 2017
|Region||Portugal, Vinho Verde|
|Brand||João Portugal Ramos|
Wine SpectatorLight-bodied, but with a round profile, this white shows creamy lemon, peach and floral notes edged by spice details and salty acidity, with a clean finish. Loureiro.
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Loureiro is dry, without added fizz (although there was a slight spritz that blew off quickly) and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. I loved the structure, freshness and relative depth of this inexpensive bottling this year. It finishes with a very crisp edge, slightly tart, in summer-refresher style. What it does not do so well is express the grape. If I think "nice crisp white," it is terrific, but the "Loureiro" part is a little subdued. Now, however, look at the price. You can't go wrong here. It is not a perfect Loureiro, but it is a perfect summer white.
