Characteristics of Enrique Mendoza Pinot Noir

Enrique Mendoza Pinot Noir is a red wine from the D.O. Alicante made of Pinot Noir grapes from vineyards grown on the slope Cabezo de la Virgen de Villena (in the region of Alicante), following environmentally-friendly methods. This Pinot Noir wine is the result of a careful process and a very selected grape harvest conducted during the second half of September. The grapes are softly destemmed in order to keep the whole grape. The fermentation takes places in small stainless steel deposits. This wine is aged for 11 months in new and one-year-old French oak barrels from Allier.
Serve at 18.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing

Tasting notes Enrique Mendoza Pinot Noir

Sight Ruby red colour with light maroon edge. Intense and bright. Thin tear. Nose Medium intensity. Great load of fruit with very ripe red fruit, redcurrant and raspberry reminiscences which give way to floral notes, violets and fine toasted hints. Elegant mineral background with some herbaceous and balsamic touches. Taste In the mouth, it shows a delicate and tasty mid-palate, with a refreshing and direct acidity and a subtle tannic sensation. It is a medium-bodied red wine with a nice finish and a very marked fruity persistence.
Sight Ruby red colour with pale maroon edges. Intense and bright. Fine tears on the glass. Nose Medium-intensity with a high concentration of fruit. Very ripe red fruit (redcurrents and raspberries) gives way to floral notes (violets) and fine toasted notes. Elegant mineral overtones with a touch of something herbal and balsamic. Taste Delicate and tasty on the palate with a direct and refreshing acidity and fine tannins. This red wine is medium-bodied, with a correct finish and persistence marked by fruity sensations.
Sight Very intense and bright, dark cherry red colour with dense tears. Nose Complex, intense and very varietal aromas with a great load of very ripe fruit. When it opens up, these aromas are mixed with fragrant notes of flowers, good toasted hints, smoked touches and sweet spices on its elegant mineral background with balsamic and herbal touches. Very harmonious bouquet. Taste A well bodied and bulky varietal wine from Alicante. It has a good attack and a long mid palate full of fleshy and flavourful notes of fruit and well integrated wooden aromas. It shows polished tannins and a lingering finish that leaves an aftertaste full of spicy notes of fruit. A very nice and tasty wine.
Sight Bright and intense dark cherry colour with a medium-high robe. Dense and slow-falling tear. Nose Very good and highly complex aromatic intensity. Initially, lots of ripe wild fruits are noticed along with some notes of forest herbs. When it opens up, elegant floral notes are shown along with fine toasted notes, smoked and spicy touches and hints of vanilla and cinnamon. Subtle mineral and balsamic background. Taste A red wine of E. Mendoza with a voluminous attack and a velvety mid palate. This wine fills the mouth with very well integrated and balanced, tasty and fleshy notes of fruit and notes provided by the oak during its ageing. Nice tannins. Very nice and persistent finish.
Sight Ruby red with high robe and garnet and brick colour reflections typical of its ageing in oak. Nose Intense and complex aromas. Abundant ripe fruit, especially red, along with a great minerality. Floral notes (white and purple flowers), accompanied by delicate notes of toast, smoke and vanilla provided by the oak during the ageing. Taste Large attack. Silky and tasty palate, full of aromatic nuances. Pleasant tannins.
Sight Ruby red high cape with garnet hues and tile of his own time in oak. Nose Aroma of ripe fruit, red berries and currants and blueberries are interwoven with great minerality and notes of red stone or graphite. We also reminded white and purple flowers, all well accompanied by fine notes of toast, smoke and vanilla acquired in aging. Taste With good structure and tannin with a nice juicy and joyous that gives it to live.

    Designation of Origin 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.

    Imágenes y situación D.O. Alicante

    This winery is quite aware of the fact that field work is what is truly important, because for the Mendoza family the best wines are always born from the best vines. Even the name of the company is proclaimed as "Enrique Mendoza Viticultor" ("viticultor" meaning winegrower in Spanish). Despite Enrique Mendoza making the vast majority of its wines from foreign varieties, the winery has been erected as one of the main flagships of D.O. Alicante. Currently, it is one of the exemplary wineries of the Mediterranean, whose high-end wines are widely recognised both nationally and internationally.
