Anselmo Mendes, Muros de Melgaço 2017 Vinho Verde

“Fermented and aged six months in new French oak.
Tangy aroma of green fruits and a slight cedar note. Smells really stony. Bone dry but juicy, salty tension and fabulous length. So salty on the finish.” 13% Drink 2020-2025 (JH) Classification 17

 

Anselmo Mendes, Muros Antigos Alvarinho 2019 Vinho Verde

“Four months on lees.
Vibrant, chalky, fresh pear aroma. You can almost smell the pear grain. Fabulous stone fruit and pear on the palate. Chalky texture, stony and with a light leesy richness to balance the fresh acidity. Long and with fabulous tension.” 12.5% Drink 2020-2024 (JH) Classification 17

 

Anselmo Mendes, Parcela Única Alvarinho 2017 Vinho Verde

“Fermented and aged nine months in new French oak.
More obvious oak on the nose here. Less textured than the Muros, more silky. Sour green-fruited and citrus freshness. Very good but I prefer the more textured Muros.” 13% Drink 2020-2025 (JH) Classification 17

 

Anselmo Mendes, Contacto Alvarinho 2019 Vinho Verde

“12 hours on skins, four months on lees.
A little more subdued than the Muros Antigos but smells deeper, with those same pear-fruit aromas. The skin contact has given a light friction balanced by the creamy lees effect. Long, sour-fresh finish. Mouth-watering. Great texture and length.” 12.5% Drink 2020-2024 (JH) Classification 17

 

Anselmo Mendes Vinhão 2018 Vinho Verde

“Deep cherry red. Smoky, perhaps slightly reductive, dark-red fruits. A touch meaty on the palate, the tannins surprisingly soft for the variety. Fresh, compact, wild sour-cherry flavour on the finish. Supple texture.” Drink 2020-2025 (JH) Classification 16.5

 

Anselmo Mendes, Pardusco 2017 Vinho Verde

“Mainly Alvarelhão.
Light cherry red. Pretty, tart, cherry aroma. A touch of spice. Juicy, red cough-syrup cherry flavours. Deliciously refreshing.” Drink 2020-2022 (JH) Classification 16
