Characteristics of Abel Mendoza 5V

Abel Mendoza 5V is a white wine produced in D.O.C.a Rioja by Abel Mendoza Monje in San Vicente de la Sonsierra.

Abel Mendoza began his journey in 1988, and he currently has 18 hectares that have been organically cultivated along the banks of the Ebro. The cultivation lands are rough and with a mixed composition, alternating clayey soils, marl and fine sandstones. Climate is moderately continental, marked by the Cantabrian influence.

Abel Mendoza is a wine grower that works his vines with dedication and turns them into personal wines. This is the result of different interpretations of the terroir.

 

Abel Mendoza 5V is a wine made from Viura, Malvoisie, White Grenache and small amounts of other white varieties, selecting the best grapes from small, very old vineyards.

Harvesting is carried out manually, selecting the grapes in the vineyard. When they arrive at the winery, the must ferments in new 225-litre French oak barrels, where it rests for 5 months on its fine lees.

 

Abel Mendoza 5V is a creamy, complex wine, full of shades. This Abel wine seeks the opulence and elegance of Burgundy wines. And it manages to achieve these feature by highlighting the white ripe white fruit jam on a truly elegant background of roasted notes, very well assembled.

Tasting notes Abel Mendoza 5V

This vintage, rated as "Very Good", was characterized by the hard frost that occurred when the vegetative cycle was beginning in mid-April, and by the subsequent drought. Except for these two weather events, the year passed normally, with the vintage displaying a perfect health status in the last phase of the cycle. The wines of this vintage are characterized by having a somewhat higher average graduation than 2016, with a very good aging capacity and a high percentage of fine and very identifiable wines.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
