Tasting Notes

Complexe and austere nose. Hints of wild owers and hay along with a delicate minerality remembering wet stone. Some hazelnut and vanilla coming from the oak fermentation and aging. On the palate a refreshing acidity and verticality. A touch of smoke ending long and elegant.

            [Notes2] => Contacto Alvarinho is obtained from the noble Alvarinho grape variety, grown exclusively in the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço. The localization of this sub-region provides it a particular microclimate surrounded by a range of mountains which allows a unique combination between precipitation, temperature and luminosity required for the perfect maturation of the grapes. For the production of this wine vineyards alongside the river were selected at a low altitude and with deep soils with a high content of pebbles.

About this product +

Producer >

Anselmo Mendes is recognised not only for the excellence of the wines he produces but also for the surprising and consistent way he innovates. Combining the use of age-old techniques, such as fermentation on skins, with bold winemaking methods such as the fermentation of Alvarinho in oak casks, he is established in Portugal and abroad with an original design and his own identity.

Viticulture >

Contacto Alvarinho is obtained from the noble Alvarinho grape variety, grown exclusively in the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço. The localization of this sub-region provides it a particular microclimate surrounded by a range of mountains which allows a unique combination between precipitation, temperature and luminosity required for the perfect maturation of the grapes. For the production of this wine vineyards alongside the river were selected at a low altitude and with deep soils with a high content of pebbles.

Fermentation in new 400-litre French oak barrels. Ageing in these barrels for 9 months with bâtonnage on the whole lees. 12 months ageing in bottle.
