Enrique Mendoza at El Portal

12 February 2012

I have decided to post brief reviews of wines I try, both to share my impressions with others and to keep a “notebook” for my own use. Sometimes it is a wine I try in a restaurant or at a tasting, or simply at home.

Friday night I was hosting a dinner for visiting colleagues from the UK at the El Portal restaurant in the centre of Alicante, and of course one of the important decisions was the choice of wine. When hosting visitors, I always try to highlight our local products, and so I selected the Shiraz from Enrique Mendoza, a well known producer here in Alicante province. The price was reasonable for a restaurant, €21 a bottle, and it won universal acclaim around the table. It is a nice expression of the Shiraz grape, in my opinion every bit as good as one gets from Australia.

One never goes wrong with wines from Mendoza.
