Anselmo Mendes LOUREIRO PRIVATE is the first result of Anselmo Mendes’ research with the Loureiro variety in the different farms we have along the Lima valley, on both banks of the Lima River.
This wine is the first result of research with the Loureiro variety in the different farms that Anselmo Mendes has along the Lima valley, on both banks of the Lima River. This vineyard is at an altitude of 35 meters, with a soil of granitic origin, but with schist bands. So, in the 2017 harvest, a particularly hot and dry year, we used this vineyard where it was possible to obtain a superlative concentration and expression, while still preserving the freshness and aromatic purity of the variety.
Anselmo Mendes Loureiro Private is aged for 9 months in a regular dam, followed by a 12-month aging in bottle.
A white wine with a very delicate floral aroma, also presenting fresh notes of aromatic herbs. In the mouth, together with a delicate greasiness, it also presents evolutionary notes of oil/kerosene.
