Aphros Vinho Verde Loureiro is fresh, minerally, biodynamic, Portuguese white wine. Aphros Vinho Verde displays a variety of pleasant citrus fruits on the palate such as lemon and tangerine. Fruits, flowers and minerality are the key notes within a delicate balance between sweetness and acidity on the palate. A highly enjoyable white wine for sipping in the garden on a hot day. Slightly rustic yes, but its imperfections are as always part of the charm of drinking a wine that has been made in harmony with nature. This wine cries out for some fresh seafood and a sun-drenched terrace.
Aphros is perfectly situated on exceptional soil and gently sloping south-facing slopes within the Vinhao Verde micro-climate, giving them idea sun exposure which is balanced with a cooling Altalantic breeze, which produces wines with a special acidity and minerality. Their soil and sun exposure is some of the best in the area, and their 20 hectare estate is rich in biodiversity, which is key for healthy vines. Here you'll find forests with species of acacia, oak, beech, pine and eucalyptus, chestnuts orchards and a park of century old monumental trees. They farm biodynamically and use 60 clay amphorae lined with beeswax for their fermentation.
