This unconventional Spanish red wine is made solely from Petit Verdot.

Then Enrique Mendoza Petit Verdot 2019 was aged, first for a period of 10 months in American oak barrels from Oregon, and then for 5 months in 2nd year French oak barrels from Allier.

Finally,  this red wine from Alicante was bottled unfined.

We suggest that you decant this Crianza red wine 30 minutes before you drink it.

Additional Information
Additional Information

The red wine Enrique Mendoza Petit Verdot is deep ruby with some maroon coloured edges.


This varietal Petit Verdot smells of red berries, intertwined with an intense minerality, much of which appears earthy, reminiscent of humid soil and stone. After the wine opens the fruit explodes and there are spicy notes, with some balsamic and sweet aromas.


Characteristic and flavorful, this red wine from Bodegas Enrique Mendoza flows effortlessly through the palate, with a texture which is both meaty and silky. Fruit and spice take the center stage, while maintaining a remarkably mineral background. Very well-balanced, with very good acidity and mature tannins. The finish, full of Med garrigue, is very persistent.

Our personal opinion Challenging, original and very tasty. Enrique Mendoza Petit Verdot 2019 is a wine that will delight and intrigue your guests.
