2008 Vinho Verde

2008 Adega Cooperativa de Ponte de Lima

2008 Adega Cooperativa de Ponte de Lima Loureiro, DOC Sub-Região do Lima

The wine I served for dinner last night. Not a lot of weight, crisp, clean, with even a bit of frizzante. Worked well with the mostly traditional Shanghainese dishes. Loureiro, as opposed to alvarinho, has less of a richess. Vinho verde should really be only drunk in the summer, I've learned. Helped me frame an extra dimension of my understanding of vinho verde. So it wasn't all a waste of time.
