2014 Loh-RAY- roo Santa Barbara County
Santa Barbara County
18 months in older, neutral French oak barrels
Loureiro is planted mostly in Spain and Portgual but it also grows beautifully in the Santa Ynez Valley with the warm days and cool nights. Aged 18 months in older, neutral French Oak barrels, once you pour a glass you're greeted by inviting aromas of peach, pineapple, and lightly scented floral notes. As the wine opens up, you're treated to a smooth underlying richness that leads to and long lingering tropical fruit and honey finish. Though food isn't necessary to enjoy this beauty, it is delicious with dishes like shrimp ceviche, Thai pineapple curry, or seafood paella.
