Characteristics of Dolç de Mendoza

Dolç de Mendoza is a naturally sweet wine made with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Pinot Noir grapes from the winery's vineyards in Finca El Chaconero, in a spot referred to as Cabezo de la Virgen, in Villena.
Dolç de Mendoza can only be made in exceptional vintages because the grapes need to be particularly healthy to withstand over-ripening before being harvested in the first week of December.

Once harvested, the grape bunches are squeezed and destemmed. They are put into stainless steel deposits for fermentation. The yeasts that turn the sugar into alcohol ferment the grape must to 14% alcohol. Due to the high alcohol content lots of the yeasts die leaving a high quantity of sugars and giving the wine the adequate degree of alcohol and sugar.
The wine is then put in new American oak barrels to soften the tannins and provide the toasted and smoky notes that appear in the aftertaste. It is bottled without being chilled and without being clarified, so natural sediments may appear as time goes by.
Alcohol: 15.5%
Serve at 7ºC

Tasting notes Dolç de Mendoza

Sight Dark cherry red with violet reflections. High-robe, dense in the glass. Nose Abundant primary aromas of red berries appear in the nose, blackberries, redcurrents and strawberries, leaving behind fine smoky notes and spices like cinnamon and clove. Taste The high glycerine content and the high level of residual sugars caress the palate, as well as some smooth tannins and a good acidity, resulting in a clean wine. During the long aftertaste fine smoky and toasted notes are tasted, lingering on the palate for a long time.

D.O. Alicante

Winery Enrique Mendoza

There is no doubt that the Monastrell grape variety has become a fashionable grape variety. This region is home to over half a dozen cooperatives, which have been at the forefront of a wine revolution, making wines that are respectful to the local culture the area, cultivating vines with care, selecting only the best fruit and producing wines that faithfully express character of the terroir. These wines are easy to identify, due to the fact the estate or vineyard from which they came from is usually printed on their label. Also, their authenticity and quality can be guaranteed by the DO Alicante, which not only certifies the farms, but also everything posted on the wines labeling.
