The 2018 Alvarinho / Loureiro Pássaros Escolha is a 60/40 blend coming in at 12.5% alcohol. It has 3.5 grams per liter of residual sugar and 6.8 grams of total acidity. Sharp, tense and powerful for the level, this is another fine deal from the winery this issue. It shows more personality than the monovarietal Loureiro, especially since it does not have that wine's reductive issues. It's lively and sprightly, a perfect summer wine. It has an elegant feel, but it is deeper and more intense than it at first seems. This is not (and usually is not) the best of the producer's wines this issue, but it is close and there is not much to argue about at the price point. There were 30,000 bottles produced.
