Bodegas Menade was established in 2005 by Alejandra, Marco and Richard Sanz – the 6th generation of this wine-producing family.The Verdejo grapes are selected from parcels grown in stony clay and limestine soils. They are hand-harvested and are fermented using wild yeasts in stainless steel – between 18 and 24C. Malolactic fermentation also takes place spontaneously, then the wine is gently racked and spends around 3 months on lees. No sulphur is added during the vinification process.
Pronounced honeyed and floral aromas, with hints of barley sugar, and savoury notes. The palate is textural with distinctive leesy, bready and floral characters.
Food match, try Serrano ham and manchego croquetas.
