DOC Vinho Verde Alvarinho, Monção e Melgaço
Anselmo Mendes Tempo
Type of wine
White wine made from grapes of Alvarinho variety from a vineyard planted above 200 meters of altitude. The vine, with more than 15 years old, has low production with high levels of acidity and goodmaturation. A wine made “the old way” with total fermentation on skins, with more color and more tannin.
Key points
Selected harvest (only the bunches from the more matured spurs are selected). Handpicked grapes into small boxes and carried to the winery in a short period of time. Half of the batch undergoes total fermentation on skins. The other half ferments with the whole bunch of grapes non de-stemmed. After the fermentation the batches are joined in French oak barrels where they undergo a 9 months ageing with regular bâtonnage.
Tasting notes
Deep gold color typical from the skin fermentation. Strong intensity of aromas where caramelized orange skin and hints of floral notes. On the palate, soft tannin with a beautiful structure side by side with a pronounced and stressed acidity.
