Named for the man who started it all, Abel Mendoza wines are beautiful classic Rioja-style offerings which are taken from across vineyards in the commune of San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Abel Mendoza has been producing quality wines with his wife and family since 1988.
The vineyards of the Mendoza winery are spread across the Alavesa area. In his many years of wine growing he has developed a real understanding of the soils and knows exactly which grapes to grow where. The natural and individual quality of the grapes is core to all Abel Mendoza wines. You can explore the Abel Mendoza wines in the Fine Wine Company range below.
A bright red wine, cherry in colour. Highly aromatic with notes of spice, pepper, bluebbery and raspberry as well as some thyme and vanilla notes from the well integrated barrel aging. Unctious, enveloping and elegant the tannins are polished andfresh on the palate with excellent balance between the acidity and the fruit. Delicious.
This is only the second release of this biodynamically farmed (although not certified), sulphur free (or natural, if you prefer) limited production wine from a 0.56-hectare parcel planted in 1979. It�s very fruity in the mouth, flavours of plum and liquorice, compact tannins and a bright, refreshing finish.
Aa lively and young wine marked by its explosion of flavours. This young wine stands out from the rest of young Rioja, showing a different personality. This lively and fruity wine, perfectly reveals the quality of the grapes that compose it, playing a magnificent symphony of colour, aroma and flavour.
Ripe yellow fruit on a very intense nose. With more acidity than the red Tempranillo, this is a grape with a great future in Rioja, especially in cold years. It has great length, volume and persistence.
