Anselmo Mendes Vinho Verde 'Contacto'

Alvarinho, 2015

Portugal

Vinho Verde 75cl

2015 looks to be a great vintage for Vinho Verde- all types from the young spritzy, more familiar styles to the more serious Alvarinho based wines from top producers such as Anselmo Mendes. This is called Contacto because the grapes have 12 hours of skin contact before fermentation. It makes a big difference making the wine more textural, and with the merest hint of phenolic character.
Lovely aromatic nose, quite floral with white peach, ripe red apple and citrus.
Almost a hint of spritz, again white peach, apple and citrus with a touch of spice. Lovely clean, fresh, pure style.
