We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

We are so impressed with this organic/biodynamic Vinho Verde white from Portugal. Most often, the Vinho Verde that we taste is fresh, easy, breezy, which is certainly fun and delicious, but this version of Vinho Verde was significantly more complex, mouth-filling and beautiful. In terms of the grape varieties grown in the DOC region of Vinho Verde, Loureiro and Alvarinho are the most aromatic and Loureiro finds its fullest expression in Lima Valley. The Vinho Verde region is totally exposed to the influence of the Atlantic Ocean. It is a beautiful landscape, but also a place where patience is required in order to achieve optimum ripeness. This is the flagship white wine from Aphros, made from 100% Loureiro, and aged on its lees for added complexity. Only 4,500 bottles produced.

The winery suggests serving this white with fish, grilled or baked, cod with cream sauce, shellfish, sushi, salads and fruits (especially mango and melon). Look for a clean, lemony nose, with a touch of rose petals. A fresh wash of lime, grapefruit and perfumed melon invade the mouth, guided by the acidic, mineral edge which is the axis of the wine. This has a waxy texture and persistent, uplifting finish.
