This is the new vintage of Enrique Mendoza Chardonnay, a young Spanish white wine produced by Enrique Mendoza.
A single varietal Chardonnay, it is made from estate-owned vineyards planted on the hills of Cabezo de la Virgen de Villena, at an altitude of 700 metres, in the northwestern area of the DO Alicante, bordering the DO Yecla.
Once in the cellar, the grapes were macerated for 3 hours and fermented in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature. Then Enrique Mendoza Chardonnay 2018 was aged in the tanks on its lees for a minimum of 5 months.
Drink this fresh white wine from Alicante until 2022.
The white wine Enrique Mendoza Chardonnay has a straw yellow colour with some golden and greenish tinges.
Intense varietal aromas, typical of a Med Chardonnay. Green apples, tropical fruit, dim floral remembrances and a hint of dry fruit. On the background, this white wine by Enrique Mendoza suggests a note of toasted bread and French patisserie.
Fresh and creamy, this Chardonnay from Alicante has a nice balance between the fruit and the creamy nuances, enlivened by a fresh acidity. Long finish with a leesy and tropical note.
