Louro 2013

Light golden color. On the nose aromas of sweet vanilla, ripe white fruit (peach and pineapple) with hint of butter.
In the mouth at first it is powerful, it has mineral aroma with notes of white fruit and a medium-body. It has a good structure and acidity. Medium to long final with mineral hints and herbal notes.

Louro Blanco 2013

I had participated in a prize draw and got it as a gift .
I especially liked the colour. I was explained that this wine smells like acacia flower. You can feel it is very thick in the mouth.

TASTING NOTES:
- View: Louro 2013 is a pale yellow with a greenish reflection and gold. Very clean and bright.
- Nose: Good intensity, clean, fresh, defined, balanced and very nice. Start something shy to offer after little white fruit aromas accompanied by subtle floral notes. As you walk through the glass appear mild citrus flavors, herbal notes, hay and fennel prevailing on a mineral background.
- Mouth: The palate exhibits a means, a path marked by a creamy texture and excellent acidity, integrated, deep, cool it and lengthens volume structure. Long finish with wonderful salt notes. Do not miss it!

PAIRING: Appetizer, soupy rice dishes, cooked Seafood, Grilled Seafood, Grilled white fish only.
Grapes: Godello and Treixadura
CELLAR: Rafael Palacios
