Reviews and Ratings

Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted July 24th 2017, colour medium plus ruby, good legs. Aromas and flavours of, blackberry, blackpepper, cocoa, sweet tobacco and roast meat. Taste, dry, fruity, medium plus mouthfeel, I drank this wine with a BBQ chicken, ok match the wine provided flavour to the meat. Good value. Easy to drink well made.
La Tremenda (2012) is single vineyard, medium-bodied red made with 100% Monastrell wine grapes. Enrique Mendoza is the producer of this Alicante wine region red and La Tremenda comes from a single vineyard planted 16 years ago at 600 metres above sea level The wine was fermented in stainless steel and aged in 500-litre oak vats for six months. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
