From the bottle:
"Pale yellow in color, lime and mineral aromas show through on the nose. The palate demonstrates great acidity with notes of apples and other citrus fruits. A perfect aperitif wine, easily pairing with all dishes, especially antipasti and other lighter fare.
Last week we reviewed the Loios Vinho Tinto, or red wine, from J Portugal Ramos and today we come to the Loios Vinho Branco (white wine). Much like the red wine, the white also uses grapes indigenous to Portugal. And again, much like the red wine, it is pretty tasty.
The 2010 J. Portugal Ramos Loios Vinho Branco begins with pleasant aromas of pear, melon and a bit of a herbal note. The wine tastes fresh and fruity and is very easy to drink. It's not overly complex, but still has good depth of flavor and nice acidity. Tropical fruit, lime, pear and green apple flavors lead into a nice finish with a touch of minerality. A very fresh and fruity wine.
