More about this wine from 100% Loureiro
This wine is made entirely from the Portuguese varietal Loureiro, which means “laurel” in Portuguese, and hints at the distinctive aroma of berries and flowers the grape produces. The varietal has been in Portugal for quite some time and there’s evidence of it dating back to the late 18th century. The grape is often used to make blends, so the fact that this is a single varietal wine is pretty special.

The wine’s body is very light, but its prominent acidity keeps it bright and lively. Some of the citrus notes are similar to Sauvignon Blanc but its body and style are all its own. Loureiro is known for its aromatic notes of laurels in addition to bright citrus and refreshing acidity, all of which can be found in this wine. Because plantings of Loureiro have recently declined, it's hard to find in the modern market, but when you do, it's a beautiful treat. Enjoy this wine on a day you want to spend every minute outside and see why we think it's so special.

Pairing this wine with a dish like trout stuffed with salty serrano ham will help keep its zippy acidity in check.
