Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

"The best wine is in the best vineyard". This is Bodegas Mendoza's motto, 100% devoted to the production of high quality wines with an exquisite flavour, taking care of all the variables implied. On the one hand, the vineyards, whose level of water stress is controlled by means of a precise winemaking with sensors. On the other hand, the commitment with the environment using natural fertilisers and the growing of the wines without pesticides, weed-killers or any chemical substance which may alter the intrinsic qualities of the plants and therefore, of the wine. The vineyards are grown in a natural and healthy way in sandy terroirs, poor in organic matter, what allows a ripening of the grapes with minimum levels of stress and exhaustion. The ageing of this wine takes place in French oak barrels for 14 months.

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.
