Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: The Dócil Loureiro 2017 is the result of our search for a Vinho Verde which reflects the region’s terroir, with a balanced and well-rounded character, and whose vinification relies on the vibrant acidity of the Loureiro grape variety. This Loureiro stems from its traditional home, the Lima Valley, and is produced from vines growing in granitic soils. The aromatic profile of this grape is beautifully expressive, with predominant floral and mineral aromas. Vinification: Harvest began at the end of August – it was the earliest harvest of the Loureiro grape variety on record. July and August experienced practically no rain, with warm days and cool nights. These weather conditions promoted the concentration of the varietal aromas on the grapes. Whole grapes were gently pressed, and the must was decanted and fermented at low temperatures. Tasting Notes: The nose shows elegant floral and citrusy notes. The palate reveals fresh aromas with a great balance between the flavors. The finish is long and mineral.
