"White wine from the Alvarinho grape variety, grown exclusively in Monção and Melgaço. It originates in vineyards on sunny hillsides with poor granite soils. Citrus and slightly tropical notes. Full bodied with good structure, fresh and mineral. Long finish with the light bitter citrus taste of the Alvarinho variety." —winemaker
"The 2015 Alvarinho Muros Antigos is dry and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. Another beautiful bargain from Mendes in this vintage, this shows impeccable balance, underlying power and fine concentration of fruit. The finish is lingering and gripping. Feel free to obsess over the wonderfully expressive fruit, by the way. Transparent, fresh and simply delicious, this touches all the bases. I'm not quite sure this young Alvarinho matches some super offerings in this brand in the past (e.g., 2008), but it seems to be right there just now. We'll see what the future tells us when we get there, but this is another no-brainer purchase from Mendes this issue. It should hold well, too, but let's be a bit conservative there just now." —Mark Squires, The Wine Advocate

"The family vineyards of consultant Anselmo Mendes are in the north of the Vinho Verde region the home of Alvarinho, so it's no surprise that this wine is a great interpetation of the grape. It is almost luscious in its intensity and richness. Orange, ripe apple and intense citrus flavors are encased in a generous, full-bodied wine. Drink now, although this wine will be even better from 2017." —Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
