Contacto Alvarinho Anselmo Mendes


Unlike the Muros Antigos range which comes from more typical well-drained sandy/granitic soils, Contacto comes from a site with round stones and clay near the river. Its name derives not from the site but the skin contact which Mendes uses to enhance aroma and flavour. His studies have shown that skin contact is particularly important for the concentration of Alvarinho and Loureiro. For Contacto, after a cold soak with skins, after pressing he adds a small proportion of whole grapes to the fermenting must.
