Style |
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).

Description

A light bodied wine packed full of ripe citrus and delicately tropical fruit flavours with a textural palate and bright acidity to finish. If you haven’t come across Loureiro before, it’s an aromatic variety from the Vinho Verde region of Portugal. In fact its name ‘Loureiro’ (meaning ‘laurel’ in Portuguese) is a direct reference to the aroma of its berries which have a bright, spicy, sweet scent.
