Anselmo Mendes Muros Antigos Loureiro


Anselmo Mendes is a legend in the Portuguese wine industry. Born to a winemaking family in Monção, he is reverentially known as ‘Mr. Alvarinho’ for his work with the Alvarinho grape variety. Trained in Portugal and France, he started producing wines under his own name in 1998. Working with rented parcels in Monção and Melgaço, he made his name for serious, mineral driven wines with zero effervescence. Today he owns many of the finest parcels in the area. Interested in other sections of the Vinho Verde region, he introduced the Muros Antigos (‘ancient walls’) line for wines made from grapes from the Lima Valley and Baião. To emphasize terroir and varietal character, he employs natural yeasts, slow fermenations, and neutral ageing. Across the board Anselmo’s wines bring crystalline clarity and offer peerless value for the price.

In the glass the Mendes Muros Antigos Loureiro is light straw in colour with inflections of silver-green. Allowed to warm a touch out of the fridge, it exhibits aromas of kaffir lime, grapefruit peel, pear, salty sea air, and bayleaf. Texturally it is light bodied with pronounced acidity and citrusy flavours. The saline finish is bone dry and very refreshing.
