    Named after the ancient Greek god of shepherds, flocks, and rustic music, this is one of the most unique and delicious sparkling wines you may ever taste! Produced from 100% Vinhão (one of the very rare grapes with red flesh), only the briefest of macerations (practically direct to press) earns it a mesmerizing magenta hue. Traditional method– aged 26 months on the lees after primary fermentation before disgorgement. Shiny light ruby in colour, this complex off-dry bubbly is reminiscent of a Lambrusco. Pomegranate, cherries, citrus, and Swedish berries play on the palate. Very fresh with fine bubbles and live acidity.
