Produced by one of Portugal's (in fact, one of Iberia's) most talented winemakers in Dirk Niepoort, this is a lovely vinho verde from the Lima Valley sub-zone of Vinho Verde, a region especially well known for its loureiro grapes. Dirk prefers to do things traditionally, which for most of his wines means a traditional foot pressing in lagares, composed of the same granite which is so common in the region. This particular wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel, where it ages for five months prior to bottling in March. A clean, expressive nose leads to beautiful, tangy but nicely rounded citrus fruits on the palate. This is a wine of pleasure, something one simply wants to drink. Very, very good stuff and a nice step up from our more inexpensive vinho verde offerings.
