Loureiro cames from Lima sub region, birth place of Loureiro grape variety. This region has granitic soils, deep and poor in organic matter. The vineyards are in half-hillside with a south-facing aspectalong the sides of the Lima river receiving therefore all the freshness from the Atlantic ocean. This influence determines all the freshness and aromatic exuberance of the wine. This terroir provides in this way a wine full of freshness with a crystalline acidity and a marked salinity. Exuberant nose where citric and floral aromas arise. On the palate it’s a light wine, with a crispy and round acidity. Long length with citric, tropical and herbaceous flavors.
