From the bottle:
Citric Loureiro of intense and defined aromas assimilate notes of tropical passion fruit and pineapple to one of a matured peach. In the mouth it reveals body and smoothness as a result of its maceration uncovering notes of honey. We recommend that this bottle is stored on its side in a dry and cool place and that it's served at a temperature of 10C.
The 2015 Casa de Vilacetinho Loureiro begins with aromas of citrus, tropical fruit and a pleasant floral note on the nose. Tasting the wine reveals a refreshing mix of pineapple, peach and honey with a round, soft and smooth mouthfeel and lively acidity. Almost like a massage for your mouth, this wine is a pleasure to drink. It ends with lingering honeyed notes of pineapple and grapefruit that last for a good amount of time. A lovely example of Loureiro. (You can find out more about this variety here.)
