Alvarelhão Blanc de Noirs
Type of wine
Anselmo Mendes Alvarelhão 2017 is a blanc de noir wine made from Alvarelhão grape variety. This variety is one of the more ancient red grape variety of Portugal which is particularly special in the Monção/Melgaço sub-region. The best vineyards of this variety were selected and the harvest of these vineyards was early to obtain grapes with an excellent balance between a fresh acidity and good levels of maturation.
Key points
The grapes are pressed whole to obtain a juice of great quality without any type of dilaceration or damage to the skins and without de-stemming in order to avoid any coloration to the juice. This juice was cooled and settled at low temperatures for 48h. The fermentation was held in stainless steel vats at 16ºC during 20 days after which a 6 months of battonage occurred.
Tasting notes
Floral and fruity aromas with a subtle minerality. Harmonious and well balance acidity with a structured and appealing mouth where red fruit notes arise.
