Top 10 wines in the US press

21st November, 2013 by Andy Young

Docil, Vinho Verde, Loureiro 2010

Docil, Vinho Verde, Loureiro 2010This wine was recommended by Rebecca Murphy in the Dallas Morning News. She wrote: “Vinho Verde is a wine region in northern Portugal that borders on Galicia in Spain. You have probably enjoyed the most available style of Vinho Verde, namely an inexpensive, refreshing, slightly bubbly, low-alcohol warm-weather wine. Dócil, from winemaker Dirk Niepoort, is an elegant example of the more serious wines being made in Vinho Verde. Lemon zest and flowers dominate the aromas and mingle in the mouth with flavors of green apples, grapefruit and hints of fresh herbs and dusty minerals. The fruit is enhanced by steely acidity. Enjoy it with quiveringly fresh oysters.”

    very much in the style that won the 1976 paris judgement? Pick up a book every once and awhile and learn that the block of grapes and the winemaker do not belong to ch. montelena and have not since 1976!!!
