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
Handpicked grapes into small boxes and carried to the winery in a short period of time. Skin maceration followed by total fermentation on skins. A batch ferments with the whole bunch of grapes non destemmed. After the fermentation undergoes during 6 months an ageing in used, 400 litre French oak barrels with regular bâtonnage.
Tasting notes
Deep gold color typical from the skin fermentation. Strong intensity of aromas where caramelized orange skin, citric flowers and nutty fruits arise. On the palate, soft tannin side by side with a pronounced and playful acidity. Mouth attack strongly mineral, ending long, complex and persistent showing nutty and citric fruits.
