Today, we are excited to share with you this 92 point Monastrell from Bodegas Enrique Mendoza for just $10.99 a bottle! A great value out of Alicante, La Tremenda is an unassuming wine that surprised us tremendously, pun intended. Also known as Mourvedre, Monastrell is not a varietal for the impatient winemaker. It can take years for newly planted vines to even produce grapes and is one of the latest ripening varietals in Spain.
Made from 25+ year old vines and aged for six months in French oak barrels, La Tremenda is dark and juicy with silky texture and a lengthy finish. For just $10.99, this red offers a wonderful value for the money that you don't want to miss out on!
