Wine Note

Bodegas Menade 'Nosso'

A delicious 'natural' wine from Menade. A real find from my trip to Spain earlier in the year.
Although from Rueda- I don't think it is regarded as typical of the region hence it being labelled from Castilla y Lyon.
100% Verdejo The Indigenous yeasts starts the fermentation, and the wine
undergo a malolactic fermentation, adding weight, poise and complexity to its existing expressive character. It's all handled quite oxidatively and very naturally– Certified organic, natural winemaking and no sulphur added.
Has an oxidative character on the nose, but not in a bad way. Quite autolytic and honeyed (fresh) with lime and pineapple fruit.
Really textured and almost creamy on the palate. Nutty and weighty with good acidity, lime and pineapple shining through. Crisp acidity on the finish leads to a long creamy almost butterscotch flavour, again oxidative characters but the whole is distinctive and quite delicious.
