    The 2018 Loureiro Muros Antigos Escolha, in bottle about two months when tasted, comes in with under two grams of residual sugar, 6.2 grams of total acidity and 12% alcohol. Unlike the Pássaros Loureiro, this is clean, bright and fresh, the lively acidity lifting the Loureiro. It is always controlled acidity, though - this is not an acid freak. It also has fine concentration for the grape. Plus, there's a long, gripping finish that is unusually powerful for this level. If I had a quibble - which may turn into a virtue in time - this is a surprisingly unevolved Loureiro that still needs a little time to show off the personality of the grape. It is not very expressive at the moment. It should be drinking better in late summer. Drink date: 2019-2026. Score - 90. (Mark Squires, robertparker.com, May 31, 2019)
