“The combination of Quinta do Ameal’s unique characteristics results in a diverse portfolio, which includes this Ameal Loureiro, a more intense and vibrant expression of this varietal. 2020 got off to a cold start, with heavy rain. July was hotter and drier than usual, which accelerated the ripening and development of the berries. A mild August with rain mid-month was fundamental to restore the plants’ balance. These conditions helped achieved greater maturity and concentration, maintaining the typical acidity of the region and giving us a wine that is aromatically more complex, richer and with more volume”, states Quinta do Ameal’s winemaker, José Luís Moreira da Silva.
Aged for 6 months on fine lees in stainless steel vats, this wine is aromatic, intense and balanced. It will develop well over the next 15 years.
