Muros Antigos - Vinho Verde 2018
This product is currently sold out.
Anselmo Mendes shows the class in his entry wine. It has nice fruit, good understated filling and a lovely acid. There is plenty of balance and precision in this dry white wine from Vinho Verde (without carbon dioxide). Really a white wine you don’t want to do without on the terrace when the sun is coming out.
The addition of 30% Alvarinho increases the minerality and steeliness of the wine. Tighter aromas of pear, Granny Smith apple are more pronounced, and the riper white stone fruit of the Loureiro takes more of a secondary role. The Alvarinho adds a wonderful roundness and richness.
Vinho Verde describes wines made in the North-West of Por- tugal. It also describes the super fresh, unaged style in which some wines from the region are made. Though this wine is richer than the designation suggests.
VINIFICATION AND AGEING: Vinification and maturing in stainless steel vats.
TASTING NOTES: Anselmo Mendes' wine shows a purity and even offers a very beautiful aromatic side of the Loureiro and the minerality of Alvarinho.
