Super Portuguese white: Ameal Loureiro

This is a wine I like quite a bit. It’s a brilliant Vinho Verde, made from the Loureiro grape variety (not the more famous Alvarinho).

Quinta do Ameal Branco 2009 Vinho Verde, Portugal
11% alcohol. This is from the Loureiro grape variety grown in the Lima sub-region of Vinho Verde. Very fine, aromatic and crisp with a precise limey character. Lively and a little floral with amazing purity and precision. Delicious stuff with real personality. 90/100 (£11.50 The Wine Society)
