Characteristics of Abel Mendoza Viura

Abel Mendoza Viura is a white wine from Rioja produced by the Abel Mendoza Monge winery. It is a single variety Viura.

The grapes come from old vines 30 years old. These were planted and grown on clay-calcareous soil. After harvesting, Abel Mendoza Viura is fermented in new French oak barrels of 225 litres capacity.

After this phase, Abel Mendoza Viura ages on its lees for four or five months in new French oak barrels.

Abel Mendoza Monge was founded in 1988. It is located in the town of San Vicente de la Sonsierra, a town in the district of Haro in La Rioja Alta.

Tasting notes Abel Mendoza Viura

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.
Sight Pretty straw yellow with gold hues. Nose Intense, showing notes of white fruit. Roasted and floral aromas with mineral notes on a spicy background. Taste Citrus and fruity memories. It's nice, wide and tasty. Good acidity and long finish.
Sight Pale yellow with golden hues. Nose Very aromatic, a great presence of white fruits. Abundant toasted, floral and mineral notes. Spicy background. Taste Very nice and tasty, with fruit and hints of citrus. Fresh and firm step. Good acidity. Long finish.
