Anselmo Mendes Alvarinho “Contacto” 2018
Regular Price:$21.99
Sale Price:$14.99 

The Vinho Verde DO, located in northern Portugal, is the largest wine producing region in the country. Often, you will find Vinho Verde associated with light, lively, and lightly spritzed white wines. However, the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço in the northern part of the DO specializes in wines made from the Alvarinho grape. Winemaker Anselmo Mendes and Alvarinho have been nearly synonymous since he began production in Monção and Melgaço in 1998. Through years of passion and experimentation, Mendes has created wines that consistently receive high praise from critics and wine enthusiasts alike. His Alvarinho “Contacto” is the result of experiments with skin-contact white wines. It’s full-bodied and laced with minerality, stone fruit, and piercing acidity and would pair beautifully with most salads and seafood. Cheers! Jamie
