Aphros - 2023 - Ten Loureiro Branco

Sale price€13,00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout


Crafted from 100% Loureiro grapes, Aphros' 2023 Ten Loureiro white wine is a refreshing journey through the Vinho Verde region. The grapes, harvested in early September, hail from vineyards situated in the Lima sub-region, known for its cooler climate and Atlantic influences. This expression of Loureiro showcases a bright and lively character. Expect aromas dominated by citrus fruits like lemon and orange, intertwined with hints of white flowers. A touch of sweetness (around 5 grams per liter) dances with the wine's crisp acidity, creating a balanced and easy-drinking experience. Aged for two months "sur lies" (on the lees), the wine gains a delightful texture with a hint of creaminess. This minimal intervention approach allows the pure essence of the Loureiro grape to shine through, making the Aphros Ten Loureiro a perfect choice for seafood dishes, light salads, or simply enjoyed on a warm afternoon.
