A super Spanish white blend from Alicante of the native Merseguera grape and Chardonnay, from esteemed producer Enrique Mendoza. 90 Points - Wine Advocate, USA
Bodegas Enrique Mendoza is located about 45 miles from the city of Alicante, in South East Spain on the Mediterranean coast. Run today by brothers Pepe and Julian, the estate is very well regarded and a member of the prestigious Grandes Pagos de Espana, which requires strict quality standards and highlights the special terroir of specific vineyards. Most of the vines (mainly Monastrell and Moscatel) are planted at an average of 1200 feet, with some parcels as high as 2100 feet. This excellent unoaked white is a blend of the native Merseguera grape and Chardonnay, aged on the lees before release.
This excellent white blend of the native Merseguera grape and Chardonnay is, at only 12% abv, a very drinkable bottle! A dry and crisp wine, this has a lovely roundness and texture to the pear and ripe melon fruit, which is added to with buttery and honeyed notes, alongside refreshing minerality and citrus overtones. A versatile wine, enjoyable by itself or try with grilled fish and chicken, salads and vegetable dishes.
