About

92

Get past the seriously tall bottle (that doesn't fit in any fridge door) and this wine is a whole new view of Alvarinho. Wood aged and ripe with spice and smooth white fruits, the wine is intense and beautifully ripe. It should be aged a little longer to bring out its full character, so drink from early 2019.

Product Description:

Anselmo Mendes is regarded as the finest producer of Vinho Verde, the ‘green wine’ of northern Portugal. His style is dry, fresh and vibrant and his wines can age phenomenally well, up to 2 decades in fine vintages! These wines are aged in large oak cask to give some complexity and richness. the oak is hardly noticeable.
