Anselmo Mendes Alvarhino Contacto 2017 - Parker 91 Points
Regular price $23.00
This is the most serious version of a grape that is often made into a light, fizzy style - but not this one! From Parker's The Wine Advocate: "Gorgeously balanced, bright, intense and expressive, this has tension on the finish and a focused feel. Showing a hint of lemon on the finish early on, it revels in its fine acidity as it airs out. If it was tight early on, it was far better some six hours later (recorked and in the fridge, of course). With air and a little more warmth, it seemed better balanced and transparent, very precise, but still intense. The juicy finish dribbled the fine fruit over the palate. . . . the combination of concentration and structure typically makes it a great bargain. As with everything Anselmo makes, this will age well, perhaps better than anticipated. This looks like a fine year for it."
