Phaunus Pet Nat Aphros, biodynamic wine, lightly sparkling, fresh and fruity, dry, slightly sour on the finish.  If you love Pet Nat, you will love this wine.  It is made from 10% Loureiro and 50% Arinto, two varieties that give lovely freshness and fruity notes. There is a purity to the flavour but no cidery character, so a real crowd pleaser.  This is an ideal wine for aperitif, light fishy foods, olives and crudites.

Aphros is perfectly situated on exceptional soil and gently sloping south-facing hillsides within the Vinhao Verde area.  The sun exposure is ideal and is balanced with the cooling Atlantic breezes.  This combination produces wines with lovely acidity and minerality.

The 20 hectare estate is rich in biodiversity, which is key for healthy vines. Here you'll find forests with species of acacia, oak, beech, pine and eucalyptus, chestnuts orchards and a park of century old monumental trees. They farm biodynamically and use 60 clay amphorae lined with beeswax for their fermentations.

Vasco Croft has run the winery since 2004.  He is a lifelong student of Rudolf Steiner and a passionate exponent of biodynamic viticulture.  The winery has developed from modest beginnings in 2004 to being one of the most important in the region with an expansion of the vineyard area, new cellars and now visitor and arts centre.

The wines remain the same, authentic, interesting and delicious.
