Aphros Vinhao Vinho Verde Tinto, biodynamic wine, rare Vinhao grape, cool climate red, prickly red wine. Aphros Vinhao has an impenetrable opacity, presents a slightly prickly sensation in the mouth and then bursts out smilingly with thick gobs of bramble jam and exotic black cherries and black raspberries. You can almost smell the colour of this distilled purple juices as if the skins had been freshly ripped off the flesh and just finished fermenting in the glass. It is from the vineyards of Vasco Croft spread over 20 hectares not far from the Lima river. This is a beautiful natural environment, rich in bio-diversity, in which we find, besides the vines, forests with species of acacia, oak, beech, pine and eucalyptus, chestnuts orchards and a park of century old monumental trees. A fully biodynamic estate, the wines here are different from the norm in this region where sulphur use and manipulation is common place.

Aphros is perfectly situated on exceptional soil and gently sloping south-facing slopes within the Vinhao Verde micro-climate. The site is rich in biodiversity, and receives a cool breeze from the Atlantic, bringing freshness to the wines. They farm biodynamically and use 60 clay amphorae lined with beeswax for their fermentation.
