menade made by nature

Given its vinification method, when opening, it will display a most enjoyable modest spritz but this will dissipate after a couple of minutes in the glass. This is a most singular offering whose creation has involved the accumulated wisdom of six generations of family winemaking; so please dispel in advance any pre-conceptions you may have in other words do not expect a conventional Rueda.

We have a saying at Menade: “beber vida”; and so our first (ad)venture into truly breaking the mould and seeking a natural but soundly made expression of local purity reminds us of the smell in the air on the first day of the harvest and of wet earth; and its flavour is like taking a walk on the Castilian meseta – and then it’s must, grapes and nature. Made from pure Verdejo grown in markedly stony clay-limestone soils and employing wholly natural viticulture (no sulphur orcopper treatments) involving, for example, herbal infusions and whey. Hand harvested; after a gentle pressing, the resulting untreated must was left to ferment spontaneously with its own will yeasts and this took place at temperatures of between 18º and 24º.
