We love ourselves a good mix of unqiue grapes. Anselmo Mendes's Murors Antigos Escolha is the perfect example. New vintage, same story. Anselmo Mendes is a Vinho Verde icon from the Monção and Melgaço sub-regions, areas the French would call Cru quality. The secret is the steep sloping granitic hillsides that seem to simply take over the wine on the palate.
Fresh, herbal, mineral and stony, this is a stunner in texture and electricity. All while displaying subdued notes of juicy pears, sea salts. Brightest acidity and a touch of sweetness makes this an ideal summer sipper. Precise is the descriptor. Oh, and you can pair it with anything and keep it forever.
From the Minho Valley (not Lee Min Ho. tsk) - 40% Loureiro, 40% Avesso, 20% Alvarinho. Currently, the wines from three grape varieties and in three regions of the Vinho Verde Demarcated Region : Alvarinho in the Minho Valley, Loureiro in the Lima Valley and Avesso in the Douro Valley.
Whole grapes are taken to the vertical presses without stemming. Decant for 48 hours at 12 -16° C. Cold stabilization before bottling. Stage 4 months on fine lees in stainless steel tanks, with periodic bâtonnages.
