100% Monastrell from the Alicante region of Southeast Spain, this area is known for its bustling seaside resorts and Mediterranean beaches along its coast, as the climate here creates elegant and silky red wines. Traditional dry farmed viticulture, cultivated completely by hand, with minimal human intervention, and vineyards date back to the 1930s. This is the work of Enrique Mendoza, and his name is synonymous with the best wines of Spain. His La Tremenda is a single vineyard estate, aged 6 months in new and used French oak barrels

Critics Review 15/02/2020 Leslie Williams - Irish Examiner "This is from Enrique Mendoza,one of Spain's best winemakers. Tremenda is from an organic site with 30 year oldbush vines grown at 300m altitude - bright dark fruit aromas with a touch of balsamic, fruity with a fine texture and good depth and ripeness managing to be elegant and weighty." The Wine Advocate - 92 Points "The pure Monastrell 2017 La Tremenda always represents great value and showcases the behavior of the grape in the Mediterranean climate and soil from Alicante. The grapes from 25-year-old vines fermented in small stainless steel vats, and the wine matured in French oak barrels for six months. There are notes of fresh fruit, rosemary and thyme, with clean aromas, open and expressive. The palate is juicy and round, and this is an entry-level red that represents the higher volume in the winery. This wine reflects the changes over the last seven or eight years: they do three tries of the harvest, and the first bunches tend to go to this wine. The well-seasoned barrels also go to this wine, and the vinification is much softer. The result is fruit-driven, with just a spicy twist. 2017 seems a lot cooler in the Mediterranean part of Spain than in most of the inland regions like Rioja, Ribera del Duero and so on. This is a bargain Monastrell." The Wine Advocate, 92 Points
