Anselmo Mendes Expressoes Alvarinho 2016
“The 2016 Expressões is an Alvarinho aged for nine months in used French oak. It comes in at 13% alcohol. This is a relatively new brand that I've found a little hard to peg in the line-up. I'm not quite sure what its identity is yet, or where it fits in. This is a very nice vintage for it though, perhaps its best. It seems to have the fruit and acidity to absorb the wood easily. The initial woody impression is countered immediately. The wood gives it a slightly sweet tinge, rather than a stern and dried-out demeanour. Then, the acidity and fruit do battle and often win. For an oaked wine, this becomes surprisingly transparent as it airs and warms. This is very well done. Sourced from Quinta da Torre, with 15- to 20-year-old vines, there were 3,000 bottles produced.”
