Characteristics of Menade Verdejo

Menade Verdejo is an ecological white wine from Rueda made by Bodegas Menade, a project of the Sanz brothers established in 2005. This cellar also part of the Sitios de Bodega group.

Menade Verdejo is made from 100% Verdejo grapes from vineyards between 18 and 30 years old. The vineyards are grown organically, for treatment herbal teas or whey are used instead of more invasive chemicals. Also an organic fertilizer rather than minerals are used.

For the production, 3 harvests are carried out, one when the grapes are underripe, once in the daytime , done manually, and finally one by night by mechanical technique. These types of harvests are done according to the soil composition and performance management.

When the grapes are collected, a blanketing under dry ice (-80 ° C) carried out immediately before the grapes are pressed, excluding the process of adding sulfur dioxide.

Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with wild yeasts (from their own vineyard) at 18 ° C and 22 ° C. Later the wine matures with its lees for a short time Finally, it is clarified with bentonite and stabilised naturally.

Tasting notes Menade Verdejo

Menade Verdejo 2019 is a white wine with aromas of white fruits on the nose, accompanied by herbal notes of fennel, bay leaf and thyme. On the palate it is flavoursome, fresh and balanced with a subtly bitter finish that is very typical of the variety. An honest and typical Verdejo with a long and elegant finish.
The 2017 vintage has been rated excellent by the regulatory council. A year marked by drought and high temperatures that brought the harvest date forward. Autumn began with temperatures somewhat higher than normal but with a normal rainfall. It was not until late November when temperatures dropped. The beginning of the year arrived with low temperatures and scarce rainfall. Suddenly, temperatures began to rise and accelerated the growth and phenolic development of the vines. At the end of April, there was an intense frost, a severe climatic accident that reduced the harvest by 20%. Once again, May registered very high temperatures that sped up the flowering and consequently brought the harvest date forward, becoming the earliest to date. A vintage where all the aromatic components of the grape have been extracted and the acidity has been preserved, essential to give freshness to the wine.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity.

    Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

    Winery Menade

    When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.

    The Menade winery has one thing certain: you have to give back to nature what man has taken from it. They cultivate the Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc varieties working in harmony with the environment, making use of the resources it provides. They encourage biodiversity and the insect population, they use no chemical treatments, instead relying on a green cover and a native system of mobile trees, planted on trailers, to improve the biodiversity in the vineyard. All of this work results in organic wines that are able to convey the full strength and personality of this region.
