TASTING NOTES

LEMON & ORANGE WITH STRONG GRANITE MINERALITY AT THE NOSE, THE PALATE PERFORMS WITH A VIBRANT ACIDITY, LENGTH & PERSISTENCE. CURIOSITY
THE PHAUNUS “ORANGE” IS MACERATED FOR 8 WEEKS ON THE SKINS AND AGED ON THE LEES IN 1300L CLAY TALHA AMPHORAE FROM SOUTHERN PORTUGAL.
THE WINE IS LIFTED BY THE NATURAL ACIDITY FROM THE LOUREIRO GRAPES, WHILE THE MACERATION AND LEES AGING GIVE IT TEXTURE AND STRUCTURE.
AS THE WINEMAKER SAYS, IT’S A WINE “MADE IN SILENCE,” WITH HARVEST BY HAND IN THE EARLY MORNING, AND NO ELECTRICITY USED AT ANY POINT IN THE PROCESS.
APHROS IS A WORLD WIDE RECOGNISED WINERY, WHICH BECAME KNOW BECAUSE OF ITS LEADING ROLE AS A PIONEER IN BIODYNAMIC & NATURAL WINES IN PORTUGAL.
