We were there when Anselmo launched the first wines with its name on the market. He had already made a name for himself as a consultant in many estates, but in the early 2000s he focused on his home region.
Melgaço has always been recognised as one of the best places to produce Alvarinho, but very few quality estates were still active.
Anselmo played an important role in the rebirth of the region and is now recognised as one of Portugal's leading white wine producers.
The Alvarinho grape variety plays the main role here, but Anselmo also values other local varieties such as Loureiro, Avesso and Vinhão. Its wines are distinguished by their freshness and minerality. The granitic soils, the proximity of the ocean and its location in the north of Portugal play a decisive role.
It's been our calling card for 20 years. If one wine sums up perfectly the added value of Portugal, it is this Anselmo Mendes cuvée.
The Loureiro brings a beautiful aromatic intensity to the wine.
The Avesso brings acidity and minerality to the wine.
Alvarinho brings structure to the wine.
Irresistibly delicious thanks to the freshness of the Atlantic.
