Fresh and zesty white that's made for early drinking

Characteristic of wines from Vinho Verde, this has a crisp acidity and minerality as well as a light spritz-like effervescence. Tropical fruit aromas of mango, peach and orange mix with a strong floral presence. Zippy flavours of lemon zest, grapefruit and tangerine bounce on the palate complimenting a persistent finish.

  • Blend of Alvarinho (20%), Loureiro (40%), Avesso (40%) 
  • Signature Vinho Verde style wine 
  • Light, refreshing, easy-drinking

Cellaring: 2022-2025

Food Pairing: Do as the Portuguese do and pair with grilled sardines. Try also California rolls or a spicy pad thai.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

While the Alvarinho grape is well known to Irish drinkers, both Loureiro (“Laurel-scented”) and Avesso are lesser known here but are considered as pillars of the Vinho Verde style. Although Vinho Verde translates as “young” or “green” wine, the name itself refers to a region that is lush and verdant, untypically Portuguese you might say. Anselmo Mendes is considered an elder statesman here. As a pioneer with decades of experience and awards he almost single-handedly put the region on the map. Now considered one of Portugal’s leading producers, his wines represent incredible value for money and will leave you wanting more.
