Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Enrique Mendoza Merlot-Monastrell is a red wine made by the Enrique Mendoza winery. Enrique Mendoza has two warehouses, one for aging in the town of Alfaz del Pi and other for development in the city of Villena, both in Alicante.

Enrique Mendoza Merlot-Monastrell is, as its name suggests, a blend of equal parts Merlot and Monastrell varieties. The grapes come from the Finca El Chaconero, where vineyards are cultivated on sandy and loamy soils.

For processing, the juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 26 ° C for 20 days. Malolactic fermentation is subsequently performed in oak barrels.

Finally, Enrique Mendoza Merlot-Monastrell is aged for 13 months in barrels of French and American oak.

Before hitting the market, it is neither clarified nor filtered.

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.

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.
