Characteristics of Abel Mendoza Selección Personal

Abel Mendoza Selección Personal is a red wine produced in the 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 varied composition, alternating clayey soils, marl and fine sandstones. Climate is moderately continental, marked by the Cantabrian influence.
Abel Mendoza is a wine grower that cultivates his vines with dedication and turns them into personal wines. This is the result of different interpretations of the terroir.

 

Abel Mendoza Selección Personal is born from an organically cultivated vineyard known as Marrate, located in the area of El Bardallo, between San Vicente de la Sonsierra and Labastida. A 70-yeard-old Tempranillo that grows on terraced vineyards with calcareous, stony soils.
Grapes are harvested by hand and then selected, grape by grape. Fermented in stainless steel deposits. Malolactic fermentation in concrete deposits. Aged for 12 months in barrels made of French oak.

 

Abel Mendoza Selección Personal is a wine with a mineral, juicy and succulent character. A blunt wine that captivates you from the very start and that you will enjoy until the end.

Tasting notes Abel Mendoza Selección Personal

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.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
