Pepe Mendoza

Based in Alicante, Pepe Mendoza was born into Spanish-wine royalty (his father Enrique helms one of the most successful family wineries in the country) and crafts wines of purity, depth and elegance. His style is a rejection of the high-volume, low-character methods of the bigger conglomerates and the resultant high-alcohol blockbusters, instead focusing on a more terroir-focused approach. The results are very impressive. He works only with native grapes (monastrell, alicante bouschet, muscatel, macabeo and the very rare giro are all grown) and employs native yeasts for fermentation, and he takes a hands off approach to winemaking, intervening as little as possible in the process to create wines that very much speak of their origins.

Pepe Mendoza is one the best producers in the Alicante region, using old methods – fermentation in amphoras in this case – and local grapes such as Moscatel de Alejandría to produce wines of great character, elegance and refinement. This engagingly scented white has jasmine and orange peel aromas, good concentration and structure and flavours of quince, lemon zest and tangerine, complemented by a tangy, dry finish.

I rather fancy the sound of The Wine Society's "aromatically complex dry white" moscatel "aged in clay amphorae" from Alicante for Christmas dinner.

An aromatically complex dry white made from muscat and aged in clay amphorae. There's a pleasing touch of red wine-like chew , yellow plum and orange citrus with a long, mineral finish.

Lovely saline tension and verve in this characterful expression of dry Moscatel, fermented and aged in amphorae. Lifted nose of preserved lemon and wet stone, with a touch of white flowers. The palate is linear yet soft, with orchard fruit and fresh nut flavours driven by good acidity. Lingering spicy touch. 92/100
