Aphros 2021 Vinhao Red (Vinho Verde)

How much red Vinho Verde have you had recently? You’ll want more after tasting this, though from the reviews it may be the exception that proves the rule among these wines. Crazy deep purple in the glass, sappy, wild berry fruit, huge acidity and freshness and more fun than a barrel of monkeys. Just when you thought you had tried everything, along comes this!

Notes from the Producer: Lagar are traditional open tanks where foot trodding takes place. After pressing, moved to stainless steel tanks to finish fermentation. Serve a bit chilled. Vinhao is traditionally paired with pork dishes or grilled sardines in Portugal.
