Muros Antigos Blanc de Noir Sparkling
Muros Antigos Sparkling Alvarelhao - Minho, Portugal
Experience a "Portuguese Champagne" in Anselmo Mendes's finest sparkling VinhoVerde. Named after the old walls of Monçãoand Melgaço that circumscribe the old vines of Alvarelhao, a high acid red grape sparedits skins and color for this golden nectar.
The wine is incredibly aromatic yielding an array of tangerine, orange blossom and acacia. On the palate it is at once effervescent and soft due to extensive lees aging. The result is a round, toasty finish with a citrus punch perfect for a summer's day.
Try with seafood or shellfish, as an apéritif preceding a fruit salad, pâté withcheese and charcuterie, or a special occasion with a special someone. For this is a wine with which to celebrate life.
Also a luxurious addition to Twisted Alchemy cold pressed Passion Fruit, Blood Orange or Ruby Red Grapefruit for a refreshing Mimosa.
