Anselmo Mendes Muros Antigos Escolha 2018

Vinhos Verde, Northern Portugal, PortugalAnselmo Mendes is a Vinho Verde legend, and wines like this show why. The polar opposite of cheap and cheerful VV, this blend of alvarinho, loureiro, and avesso comes from the steep granitic hillsides of the Monção and Melgaço sub-region. After a cold must clarification and low temperature fermentation, this aged four months on the lees. Orange blossom, pear, perfumed melon, cold cream glide along a silken, lees-decked palate to a spiced lime pith finish. Quite intense for 12.5 degrees.Tasted: 22 August 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 private wine shops Producer: Anselmo MendesDistributors: Altus Wines
