Pepe Mendoza – Casa Agrícola Blanco – DO Vinos Alicante
Muscat 40%, Macabeu 40%, Airén 20%
A representation of two prominent Alicante terroirs, the highlands of Vinalopó with the Macabeo and Airén, and the Tierras Marinas with their Moscatel de Alejandría.
Muscatel comes from clay soils and Macabeo and Airén from sandy loam.
In the winery, Pepe Mendoza Casa Agrícola Blanco is vinified with stems in small 5,000-litre tanks at a constant temperature of 15ºC, without exogenous yeasts or enzymes.
It remains in contact with the lees until bottling and a minimum dosage of sulfur is used.
2 months of aging in stainless steel tanks and 6 months in the bottle.
The wine undergoes a light filtration before bottling.
Lovely spring notes. Aromas of jasmine, gallant at night, citrus notes of lime and orange peel.
Nice aromas of Mediterranean infusions, when bottled the notes of fennel and aniseed typical of the area take position in the glass, very fresh on the palate and with good volume.
An ideal white to accompany traditional fish and rice dishes from Levante.
Pepe Mendoza Casa Agrícola is the personal project of the man who has been the winemaker of the Enrique Mendoza family winery for 25 years.
A work that stands out for betting on varieties of Mediterranean origin, ecological techniques and small artisanal productions with outstanding D.O. character. Alicante.
