Enrique Mendoza Monastrell la Tremenda Alicante 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Luis Gutierrez (Wine Advocate): ...The 2014 feels very tender, it has the esparto grass austerity of the stony vineyards with the chalky soils and a myriad of Mediterranean herbs. They used some stems for the fermentation, which added a fine thread and makes it subtly textured. It has the dusty tannins and the saline tastiness of the limestone soils. It represents a superb value and a great introduction to the Monastrell from Alicante; the price is hard to believe. Drink: 2016-2019. (Jun 2016)
