Tasting Notes

Given its vinification method, when opening, it will display a most enjoyable modest spritz but this will dissipate after a couple of minutes in the glass.

This is a most singular offering whose creation has involved the accumulated wisdom of six generations of family winemaking; so please dispel in advance any pre-conceptions you may have – in other words do not expect a conventional Rueda.

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.

Made from pure Verdejo grown in markedly stony clay-limestone soils and employing wholly natural viticulture (no sulphur or copper treatments) involving, for example, herbal infusions and whey.

Hand harvested; after a gentle pressing, the resulting untreated must was left to ferment spontaneously with its own wild yeasts and this took place at temperatures of between 18C and 24C.

Subsequent malolactic fermentation was also spontaneous (wild bacteria), and, after racking, the wine was left on its not so fine lees for between 4 and 5 months to be subsequently clarified and filtered ‘respectfully’.

Bottled with a little natural carbon dioxide left in to afford a measure of natural protection, Nosso was allowed to rest for three months before being allowed out, into the daylight, with no uncertain trepidation.
