Details

Produced by Bodega Mustiguillo, Mestizaje is a Spanish red wine that bears the label of DOP El Terrerazo, located in the sunny province of Valencia.

Produced in a pristine environment, amidst a wonderful Mediterranean forest located at an altitude of 800 metres above sea level, this certified organic wine is made from a blend of the indigenous Bobal, alongside Grenache and Syrah.

Harvested by hand and separately vinified according to the variety and the plot of origin, the grapes were destemmed, gently crushed and cold-soaked prior to fermentation.

After the completion of alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks and 80-hectolitre oak vats, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in oak barrels for 4 weeks, after which it was aged for 10 months.

You should decant Mestizaje 2017 a minimum of 30 minutes before you drink it.

Drink this red wine from Valencia from now until 2024.

Additional Information

Appearance

The red wine Mestizaje has a high cherry-coloured robe with a violet rim.

Nose

The aromas of this wine from VT Terrerazo are rich and complex. Juicy red fruit, balsam, menthol, some mineral suggestions, a distinctive note of liquorice and bitter herbs, typical of Bobal, and some remembrances of fine wood and smoke.

Palate

This wine by Bodegas Mustiguillo is young and still a bit nervy, with quite a lot of room for growth. Ripe red berries, spices, an enticing sense of terroir and remembrances of underbush and Mediterranean garrigue. Lively tannins, good acidity and long finish.

Our personal opinion

Lively and enjoyable, Mestizaje 2017 pairs excellently with cured chesses and game dishes.

  3. Mestizaje review by Prep School on 9/25/2017

    An incredible value. The assemblage of grapes works very well, and I think that the wine has a drinking span of 4-5 years, during which it will surely improve.
