Tasting notes:
'The 2014 Curtimenta, one of Mendes' specialty items, was aged in used French oak for nine months. It comes in at 13% alcohol. Surprisingly elegant, considering the oak treatment, this graceful Alvarinho is a bit understated and very focused. The grip and penetration on the finish demonstrates that this is not your ordinary Alvarinho, though. It lingers and persists, handling its wood beautifully. The wood-aged Alvarinhos are always a bit different--they have less purity and character, of course--but this is the perfect food wine and impeccably balanced, fresh and graceful. This was a sometimes tricky vintage. Curtimenta still excels.' – Wine Advocate, 92/100

Anselmo Mendes is regarded as the finest producer of Vinho Verde, the ‘green wine’ of northern Portugal. His style is dry, fresh and vibrant and his wines can age phenomenally well, up to 2 decades in fine vintages!

His most recent achievement came in 2006, when his wine “Muros Antigos Alvarinho 2005” was considered one of the best 100 wines of the world by the magazine Wine Enthusiast. There is no doubt that Anselmo Mendes is responsible for some of the best and most famous wines of the Vinho Verde region.
