Aphros Vinãho 2018
Vinãho. Lima Valley, Portugal
Made from the rare, dark skinned Portuguese native grape Vinhao, a red Vinho Verde from the Lima Valley, this is in a rich style, with tannins and acidity and also with stalky black-currant flavors. Its fruit is ripe while intensely fresh. The wine has a vivid nose and palate with flavours of sour cherry and wild berry fruits. Showing a creamy softness and mature tannins, without losing the brilliant acidity with its backbone of granite minerality.
Stomped by foot and naturally fermented in ancient granite tanks.
