*Pepe Mendoza certainly has the passion and knowledge to put the family winery where they belong, in the top of the quality wineries in the Mediterranean - Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate*

 

Bodegas Enrique Mendoza is located about 45 miles from the city of Alicante, in South East Spain on the Mediterranean coast. Run today by brothers Pepe and Julián, the estate is very well regarded and a member of the prestigious Grandes Pagos de España, which requires strict quality standards and highlights the special terroir of specific vineyards. Most of the vines (mainly Monastrell and Moscate) are planted at an average of 1200 feet, with some parcels as high as 2100 feet.

 

This excellent Monastrell is aged for six months in American oak, and a further six in bottle before release. Bright ruby-red in the glass, the aroma is intense with fresh black cherries, plums and ripe strawberry enhanced with hints of sweet spice, toast and cocoa. The palate is very accessible, with a silky texture, and expressive notes of cherries and plums with hints of cocoa. The finish is long with some sweet spice and toasty notes. Enjoy now to 2020. Try with rare beef or Sausages, or delicious all by itself!

 

"This wine has six months in used 500-liter barrels and a variable time in vat, between six months and one year. The 2014 feels very tender, it has the esparto grass austerity of the stony vineyards with the chalky soils and a myriad of Mediterranean herbs. They used some stems for the fermentation, which added a fine thread and makes it subtly textured. It has the dusty tannins and the saline tastiness of the limestone soils. It represents a superb value and a great introduction to the Monastrell from Alicante; the price is hard to believe. Drink - 2019." 92 Points - Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate
