Significantly more serious wine than the average Portuguese Vinho Verde. Crisp palate hints of red apple acidity and structure creates a nice balance. Excellent minerality, lot of fruit. Perfect for waiting for the spring.more reviews

A model of accuracy and integrity, an aromatic wine to die for! The stuff of a great master of Alvarinho, the indigenous grape of the region!
Do not miss out on trying an artisan Portuguese wine at this price. This is the first step to take into the Anselmo Mendes universe. The nose might suggest a great Alsace Riesling with its very marked mineral notes. The second nose evokes a herbaceous and mineral profile approaching flint. On the palate, it is the finesse that stands out with a white lace that concludes in freshness and citrus fruits with great elegance. This wine is rewarded each year by R.Parker!

Great mid-range Moncao e Melgaco. 100% Alvarinho, with it's trademark crispness and aromatics of citrus fruits, white flowers and some green apple and tropical fruits. Stunning value wine.

I'm impressed by the quality of this nectar, we opened this with friends around fillets of sole just cooked in butter, it was sublime! This minerality is disconcerting, I'm a fan!

ANSELMO MENDES

Anselmo Mendes studied agronomy and oenology for several years in Lisbon, he then returned to his native village to produce his first wine in the Vinho Verde region and then try the adventure with an indigenous grape that fascinates him so much: Alvarinho. This passion for this white grape variety from the region led him to experiment with many oenological techniques still unknown for the region. He is notably the first to age this flagship grape in French oak barrels to bring roundness and complexity to his wines. The international press considers him to be the most innovative winemaker in Vinho Verde. These wines are regularly praised by critics around the world and we were charmed by this pure, modern and subtle style of whites which definitely belong to the greatest wines in the country!
