Clandestino Natural Tinto de Menade, Castilla Y Leon, Spain

Another exceptional wine from Menade, the organic winery who also provide the Nosso Verdejo. Made with exactly the same ethos, this organic Tempranillo wine has a deep purple-red colour with violet tones. A fruity nose then opens up to reveal ripe red berries, plums, blackberry, blackcurrant with some tobacco and spice.

It's a full-on flavoured red wine with rich round ripe fruit, velvety tannins and a long minerality in the finish. Lots of delicious black fruit, plums, blackcurrant and spice flavours. 

Food Match: Mexican dishes such as tacos and burritos, char-grilled or smoked meats, mature cheeses

Winemakers have a saying at Menade: “beber vida”; and so their first (ad)venture into truly breaking the mould and seeking a natural but soundly made expression of local purity reminds us of the smell in the air on the first day of the harvest, and of wet earth; and its flavour is like taking a walk on the Castilian meseta - and then it’s must, grapes, and nature.

The grapes are hand-picked and brought in the winery where they are rigorously sorted. After a gentle pressing, the Indigenous yeasts starts the fermentation in small stainless steel tanks, which takes between 12 and 25 days.

The wine undergoes a malolactic fermentation that was also spontaneous from wild yeast, adding weight, poise and complexity to its existing expressive character. A little gentle cap-plunging, careful not to over extract. The wine is not clarified or filtered, it is left to settle then bottled. Zero sulphur is added.

Bottled with a little natural carbon dioxide left in to give the wine a measure of protection.
