The Wine Box
Menade Organic Verdejo
White wine with fresh stone fruit aromas with notes of fennel and thyme. The palate is ripe and textural with white peach and herbal characters, balanced by crisp acidity and minerality.
Food match, try some baked fish with fennel.
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 of vines, 20-25 years old Grown in pebbly, clay and chalky soils at between 700 and 800m altitude. Harvesting takes place by 3 different processes: part green daytime harvest by hand, part mechanised and part night-time harvest. Each parcel is vinified separately using wild yeasts in stainless steel. Fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature of 18-22¬∫C, and the wine remains on lees for a short period.
