DO Rueda is found about 180 km North West of Madrid in the heart of Castille and Leon. On an elevated plain of around 700m above sea level it has a strong continental climate enduring extreme heat and cold. To the north it touches the Duero River (with alluvial soils and high lime content) and to the south the soil is sandy with a gravel and clay subsoil. And because of this there are a good number or 100+ year-old pre-phylloxera vines knocking about. But above everything else Rueda is known for its easy drinking Verdejo. Whilst sometimes blended with Sauvignon Blanc and Viura, Rueda's whites are generally fresh and fruit-forward with intense citrus, melon and great acidity, often of exceptionally high quality.

Bodegas Menade may have been founded as recently as 2005, but Alejandra, Marco and Richard are the 6th generation of the Rueda based Sanz wine family. Whilst their father continues to run the world renowned Bodegas Vinos Sanz, his three children decided to take another route. In looking right back to their traditional winemaking roots and in fully respecting nature allowing it to speak for itself, Menade was born. Using a mix of natural traditional winemaking and state of the art technology they are able to bring the wines of the past, into the future. And with it various biodiversity projects; an Insect Hotel (increasing insects amongst the vines by 30%), Mobile Trees (different species wheeled into vineyards to see the effects on crops) and an adjoining farm to encourage biodiversity and plant cover.

Tasting note: Deep; rich; sunbeam yellow with a fresh, bready nose of stone fruits. There is a slight spritz for a minute or two giving way to ripe; rich yellow mango; melon and textured white fruits. More savoury notes of pastry; freshy baked bread and apricot develop. The finish is long; juicy and persistent with tongue tingling acidity.
Winemaking Detail: 60 year old vines. Hand harvested. Wholly natural viticulture - no copper; no sulphur. Soft press followed by spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Racked and left on fine less for 3 months. Filtered respectfully. NO SO2 added at all.
