Muros de Melgaço

Limited to existing stock. If the wine you have purchased runs out of stock, we will contact you to suggest a different wine, or to return the amount paid.
Wine promotions cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons. Type of wine: White wine made from grapes of the Alvarinho variety produced exclusively in Melgaço. The vineyards are on south-facing hillsides with high maturation and high levels of acidity. Fermentation and ageing in French oak barrels for 6 months. Today its complexity and excellence is the result of more than 25 years of study to achieve perfection. Over the years it has become a reference in Portugal for its elegance, class and consistency.

Key points: Careful selection of the best south-facing plots. Soft pressing of the whole de-stemmed grape. Slight settling of the must. Fermentation in barrels with “batonnage” of total lees for 6 months.

Tasting notes: Complex, varietal aromas of the grape variety with discreet quality wood. Very structured, with good, long acidity. Quite mineral with notes of grapefruit typical of Alvarinho.

Anselmo Mendes

Anselmo Mendes was born and grew up in Monção. It was then, as a child, that he became acquainted with the culture of the vine and wine production. The Alvarinho variety, and its wine produced there, immediately became a part of his life, to the extent that, today, Anselmo Mendes and Alvarinho are synonymous.

He graduated in Agro-Industrial Engineering in 1987, at the Higher Education Institute of the Technical University of Lisbon, and post-graduated in Oenology at the Catholic University six years later.
