Aphros 2020 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!
