Aphros Loureiro 2021

Vinhos Verde, Northern Portugal, PortugalVasco Croft is one of the pioneering biodynamic vintners in Portugal, and Aphros is his personal project. From Vinho Verde's Lima subregion, this loureiro spent time on skins before pressing into inox for fermentation and two months ageing on lees before filtration and bottling. Tight and zippy with lime, lemon verbena, mandarin, melon on a slight (11%), skippy, stony palate, with a subtle granite buzz on the finish. Not your typical floral loureiro.Tasted: 31 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
