Then, the wine aged "sur lies" for 2 months, is filtered and bottled. Aphros Loureiro is a clean wine witha lemony nose and a touch of petals. A fresh wash of lime, grapefruit and perfumed melon invade the mouth, guided by the acidic, mineral edge which is the axis of the wine. Waxy texture. Persistent uplifting finish.
