Joao Portugal Ramos Loureiro Vinho Verde
Revered winemaker Joao Portugal Ramos has earned countless accolades including 2000 Winemaker of the Year (Revista de Vinhos), 2004 Winemaker of the Year (Vin & Mat), and 2006 Producer of the Year (Essencia do Vinho). His single-variety, non-fizzy Loureiro is a true hidden gem from the Vinho Verde region. It is super fresh and lively, bursting with floral aromas and flavors of pears, melon, green apples, and lime on the palate. Citrusy tones, bright acidity, and racy minerality lead into a crisp finish.
