Vinhos Aparte - Ambar White (2020)

Vinhos Aparte - Ambar White (2020)

STAFF PICK

Skin contact Moscatel from Setuba, Portugal.

What started as a thesis project for three friends attending enology school together has become one of the most exciting natural wine projects in Portugal. Vinhos Aparte brings a punk-rock/graffiti artist aesthetic to their winemaking, and it shows in their whimsical, fresh, fruity, and oh-so-funky wines. They may be grape-mad explorers in wine-based fun and craziness, but they are dead serious when it comes to making extraordinary wine.

Apricot, Orange Peel, White Nectarine 

Braised Lamb Leg, Smoked Pork Belly, Mixed Pastry
