2013 Anselmo Mendes - Expressoes Vinho Verde (90 pts) #winereview - Pale lemon color. Pronounced nose and running the gamut in terms of aromas from floral to tropical. Honeysuckle, pear, quince, lime, cantaloupe and watermelon rind. A touch of smoke and steeliness as well. The palate is dry, high acidity, medium body, and medium alcohol. Cantaloupe, quince, and lime on the palate, but the steeliness is more of a wet stone flavor now. Great mouthfeel, the wine is light but flavorful. The finish is long and really surprising, it ends with floral notes of honeysuckle and acacia. This just adds to yet another Vinho Verde to the list that has really captivated me recently. You could easily kill bottles of this wine at a dinner party. Crowd pleaser, but provocative enough to keep people asking for more. Extremely well made. #portugal #vinhoverde #alvarinho #anselmomendes #wineterroir #wine #winegeek #winelover #winetasting
