Product Description
Details

A single varietal Spanish red wine produced by the young winemakers Mariona Vendrell and Albert Canela, Succés El Mentider is solely made from Trepat, an indigenous variety from the southern Catalan region of Conca de Barberà.

A variety which produces highly characteristic, low-alcohol, deliciously drinkable wines, this wine by the Succés Vinícola winery is produced from old vines over 100 years of age.

After a traditional vinification and a long maceration process, this Trepat red wine was aged for 9 months in French oak barrels.

It is worth noting that, traditionally, the Trepat grape was considered good only for producing rosé wines.

However, Succés El Mentider 2016 successfully proves yet again that the variety can also be used to craft outstandingly elegant red wines.

Drink this red wine from Conca de Barberà over the next 5 years.

Decant this Crianza red wine 30 minutes before drinking. If that is not feasable, at least aerate the wine a little.

Additional Information
Appearance

The red wine Succés El Mentider has a bright, intense, dark cherry colour with a garnet rim.

Nose

Complex notes of plums, strawberries, toast, white pepper, spices and menthol, characteristic of the Trepat variety, with some mineral undertones and remembrances of wet earth.

Palate

Savoury notions of red and black fruit, a note of pepper and spices and notions of chocolate cherry. This wine by Succés Vinícola is lively and crisp, with a very good acidity, crunchy tannins and a long, delicately smokey finish.

Our personal opinion

Made from a little-known, but exceedingly interesting Catalan native grape, Succés El Mentider 2016 is a very original wine from Conca de Barberà.

I was more than pleasantly surprised by this flinty, peppery wine. Will buy again.
