2014 Aphros Ten Sub-Região Lima, Vinho Verde DOC

This varietal Loureiro has about seven grams of residual sugar that add flesh to the grape’s briny essence. There are notes of laurel, grass, fresh meadow, and green peels, but the wine also feels satiny, with a long, flaxen finish. As with all of the Aphros still wines, this Vinho Verde is not spritzy.

10% abv | Aphros works with Michael Skurnik in N.Y. and Winewise in Calif.
Sample tasted at the winery on 19 May 2016.
