True Rioja Lover,
The following "terroir-infused" wines from Abel & Maite Mendoza just landed in our warehouse;
"Any self-respecting wine writer should have their senses open 24/7. A great wine or great producer can appear at any moment. It was on my first night in Rioja that I randomly selected a bottle of “5V” from a restaurant list in Logrono and found it utterly delicious. Upon realizing that Abel Mendoza’s wines had not been included in my tastings, I asked if his wines could be winged over. It was a few days before I got round to it, and in the meantime, “Abel Mendoza” seemed to be the winemaker on everyone’s lips when I posed the question: “Who is pushing the Riojan envelope?” This husband and wife team, Maite the oenologist and Abel the vine grower, create white wines that set the pulse racing... Maite and Abel’s wines are very special, suffused with personality and intellect, and were some of the most exciting that I met in Rioja." - Neal Martin
And here is what our favorite book in Spanish Wines "The Finest Wines of Rioja and Northwest Spain" has to say...
