The top of the range in white is the 2015 5V, a blend of the five white varieties, but in proportions that change with the year. In a ripe year like 2015, there is more Malvasía and Viura, and the lowest volume (perhaps around 10%) was from Tempranillo Blanco. It was very ripe and Mendoza wanted to avoid that excess ripeness and give the blend some freshness with the other grapes. Having five grapes gives a good margin to play and achieve a nice blend, which is subtler and more complete, certainly the best white in 2015. It has good complexity and depth, with great length and persistence, fresh and mineral. A serious white. 2,320 bottles produced.

Description

50 year old vines. 2,500 bottles.
This is Abel Mendoza's top white wine.
A perfect blend of 5 different varietals; Viura (aka Macabeu), Malvoisie, White Tempranillo, Torrontés et White Grenache.

Vinification

The blend changes according to the vintage, so as to add volume or freshness.
The wine in barrel fermented, but without malolactic fermentation. It stays 5 to 6 months on its lees.

Tasting analysis

Wood notes in the nose when young; mais as years go by, everything melts into place, for there is substance in this wine.
A perfect balance on the palate between acidity, alcohol and fruit.
This wine is full bodied, but fresh, and has a log aftertaste.

Storage potential

5 to 8 years

Serving

Serve cool in a large Burgundy-type glass.
