Clip Loureiro 2012 DO Monte da Vaia, Vinho Verde, Portugal

Delightfully restrained with hints of <insert flower here>. What I like about this wine is the structure. The ass-kicking acidity of Loureiro is stunning and as we all know ‘acidity equals drinkability’. I’m almost tempted to say this wine has tons of minerality but since that term seems to be red-flagged I will just say that the world is a better place with this wine in it. Points? Hmm…4,8 on a Richter scale.
