The Wine:
Biodynamically farmed and using 3,500l oak foudre, the 2022 Louro manages to convey a huge amount of flavour for the entry level wine of Rafa's collection: Texturally there's enough there to recall some Grand Cru Chablis, with subtle, just ripe orchard fruit hanging along a searing acid line who's slight saline touch recalls the granite soils of the O Bolo. There's a certain tertiary note of forest and moss that adds to the complex nature and old world vibe of Louro.
