Tasting Note

Portugal has impressed us again. Winemaker Anselmo is recognised as one of the country’s finest white wine producers, known for his experimentation. This wine has had some skin contact and is a great example of his skill. The ripe stone fruits balanced with a lively acidity make it seriously moreish and an excellent wine to pair with food.

The Producer

Anselmo Mendes

Aselmo Mendes began producing wine from Alvarinho in 1988 in Moncao and Melgaco. His winery is based in the Minho Valley and acts a place for experimentation and research. The philosophy is to make each wine as an expression of the land with a mark of character. Anselmo now acts as a consultant winemaker across Portugal - in Vinho Verde, Alentejo, Douro and Dao - always trying to bring out the best character of each region in his wines.
