Review

Sotorrondero is a fairly intense and powerful wine, but also free-flowing and easily-drinkable, balanced and pleasurable, and one of those wines that always scores highly when its price is taken into consideration. At Jiménez-Landi, their work involves showing great respect for the environment, with little intervention during production processes, and this results in the wines conveying typicity, fruit and minerality.

This is a Garnacha and Syrah blend, or Syrah and Garnacha, as the balance is perfect; ripe Garnacha and fresh Syrah grapes; sweet and juicy Mediterranean Garnachas, and fresh northern Syrahs, high-altitude Syrahs, from vineyards that are planted at altitudes over 600 metres.

In appearance it is clean, of medium intensity and with a good show of tears, while rich in fruit aromas on the nose. It opens up in the glass with candy-sweet aromas which rapidly refresh and then ease off, highlighting ripe red fruit and some black too (blueberries, raspberries, mature plums) and notes of violets, vegetal hints, bakery, tobacco and balsamic notes. It is luscious overall, but also woodland, fresh, smooth and most appealing.

On the palate it is intense, powerful, with plenty of body but without excessive extraction, and has a fine balsamic bitterness: of eucalyptus on the nose and bay laurel on the palate. A sincere wine helping to introduce us to this denomination, Méntrida, still unknown to many.

Deliciously good

Have loved this wine for years and this vintage is no exception. Great juice from Méntrida that works as an excellent introduction to the region and Grenache of the Gredos.

Agradable experiencia

Impresion satisfactoria en mi primer contacto con ladenominacion de origen Mentrida, fresco y dulce pero con cuerpo suficiente.Se nota el alcohol pero el final es sostenido y armonico.Volvere a probarlo.

Preis / Leistung in Ordnung - entspricht in etwa der Beschreibung

Wenn man die Beschreibung zu diesem Wein liest, könnte man glauben man kauft ein Juwel zu einem sensationellen Preis. Er entspricht auch Großteils der Beschreibung, für mich persönlich fehlt jedoch etwas die Harmonie bzw. der Glanz oder besser gesagt die Finesse.

Interesante buena RCP

Bien de fruta, taninos presentes pero sin astringencia,toque mineral, final largo y persistente. Jimenez Landi no defrauda Interesante, buena RCP.

Bodegas Jiménez-Landi is a family-run enterprise which has arisen out of passion for the land and vines, and inherited the tradition both of former generations and also the actual area in which it is located, Méntrida, a town near the Sierra de Gredos mountains whose wine-growing past dates back to the 12th Century. The winery building is set inside an old manor house built in the 16th Century, within which they have managed to preserve a cave where their forebears used t...
