Loureira Grape Variety

This is the second grape used both in Northern Portugal and Galicia in Spain. I have only ever tried this variety blended with other grapes such as Treixadura, Albariño and Godello. Loureira is usually present in low quantities of 10% to 15% so I’ve no idea what it tastes like in its own.

According to the article below by wine-searcher.com it is a good acidity grape with low alcohol and aromas of laurel, orange and acacia blossoms. It sounds interesting. Apparently wi es made predominately from this grape are becoming more popular. That’s news to me. I’m going to have to find me one.
