2015 Aphros "Ten" Loureiro Vinho Verde

SKU #1309116

Aphros wines are all produced from certified biodynamic grapes, in an area where farming this way, due to the humid climate, is not easy. Proprietor Vasco Croft is commited to biodynamics and all of the Aphros wines are beautiful expressions of the terroir in the Lima sub-zone of Vinho Verde. "Ten" here refers to the very low 10% ABV. Produced from Loureiro grapes which are picked earlier than usual, the wine is incredibly bright, with lip smacking acidity and yet a balanced overall expression due to the very small amount of residual sugar. And, with a tiny amount of bottle age for this 2013, the wine has put on a bit of weight, with surprisingly rich, rounded fruit given the bright, punchy lemon-lime flavor profile. Delicious! (Joe Manekin, K&L Portuguese & Spanish wine buyer)

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.
