Fantastic Portuguese Sipper

João Portugal Ramos is Portugal’s most famous winemaker. Before he began making his own wines, he was a pioneering wine consultant widely considered Portugal’s Pierro Antinori or Emile Peynaud (The New York Times). J. Portugal Ramos’s 1250 acres of vineyard are located near the ancient marble-filled town of Estremoz in Alentejo. The schist and limestone-clay soil, combined with the region’s Continental climate, create ideal conditions for growing grapes.

Ramos’s wines quickly met critical acclaim, and he expanded his vineyards to select locations in Tejo, Beiras and the Douro. His most recent project is a crisp, fruity Vinho Verde called Loureiro, in tribute to the iconic river that runs through the region. Loureiro is a welcome addition to Ramos’s collection, each member of which can be identified by a signature insistence on quality, balance and expression of terroir.

After pre-fermentation maceration at low temperature, the grapes are pressed and the juice is clarified. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature of 16o C, for 2-3 weeks.

The wine is fresh and maintains elegant aromas, with citrus and floral notes combined with a pronounced minerality and long intense finish.

It can be served as an aperitif or with light meals like fish, turkey, chicken, egg dishes and salads.
