Natalie's Score: 90/100
The crisp, fresh 2017 vintage of the Loureiro Colheita Selecionada is light-bodied, refreshing and just 11.5% alcohol. Aromas of lime zest and lemon. The grapes are grown in various subregions. Pair with shellfish and seafood. Stunningly great value for this quality.
Loureiro food pairings: grilled sardines, fresh steamed shellfish, herbed flatbread.

This Loureiro leans toward the savoury Sauvignon Blanc profile. Clean and crisp, it is refreshing and approachable. A hit of lemon on the finish is a nice final note. Great value here for a summer sipper or a seafood lunch wine. Tasted July 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com

Back in 1870 Manoel Pedro Guedes produced the first wines of from what was to be become Portugal’s iconic Vinho Verde wine region. To date, his winery remains family owned and dedicated to carry on the traditions set forth by its founder. Made with 100% aromatic Loueira grapes, this Colheita Selecionada is light, clean with mouth-watering freshness aided by the grapes natural penchant for producing a slight effervescence. Notes of pear, lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple and white flower greet the olfactory senses. The palate mirrors the nose with the addition of some minerality. An excellent value, this Aveleda Loureiro is vibrant and teeters on the low-end of off-dry. Youthful, low in alcohol, and seemingly made for carefree Summer days with just enough spunk to pair perfectly with fresh seafood paella.
|A nicely balanced Loureiro from the Vinho Verde wine region. Quinta Da Aveleda is easy to enjoy at 11.5% abv, but has just enough sweetness (8 g/l sugar) and acidity to give it that fresh tangy lemon-lime zesty finish. Easy to enjoy now in all of its freshness, but could hold two more years. Pair with grilled calamari. - Community Wine Reviews|
