Regular price £16.95

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 with high lime content) and to the south the soil is sandy with a gravel and clay subsoil. Because of this there is a good number or 100+ year old pre phylloxera vines knocking about. For all intents and purposes it is known for one thing, Verdejo, which is a grape that everyone loves officially. Whilst sometimes blended with Sauvignon Blanc and Viura they are generally fresh, fruit forward wines with intense citrus and 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: Bright; light and clean the nose is of pears in syrup; with more aromatic and tropical Sauvignon notes of passionfruit and peach. The pallet is light and fresh; with perfectly balances sweetness and acidity. Lots more passionfruit, honeysuckle and lifted tropical fruits on the finish. Long high acidity and elegant texture.
