Sparkling Loureiro from Lixa, Vinho Verde, Portugal; 4 weeks on skins in amphora; light to medium bodied and dry, crisp with notes of sour pineapple, baked apple, grapefruit, and pear, with hints of cream and flowers, medium acidity, and a refreshing finish. Organic and no added SO2

From Savio Soares:

"This Loureiro is sourced from Rui Paiva, nephew and neighbor of our friend, Prof. Fernando Paiva, in the nearby town of Lixa. Upon arrival at the cellar, the grapes are destemmed and moved to amphoras to start a pellicular macerarion for two weeks at 4C. At this point 500gm/kg of ground chestnut flowers are added and mixed into the mass.
Then the temperature is changed to 15ºC for the fermentation to start. The wine is pressed before the fermentation is finished and bottled with 18g/l of residual sugar for the fermentation to finish in the bottle.bIt is not disgorged and has the natural sediments left in the bottle. There was no SO2 added to this Pet Nat!"
