New vintage of Nosso available in the market
Menade, the first certified organic winery in Rueda, has just released to the market the new vintage of Nosso. A natural verdejo wine without any sulphur added. According to the winemaker, Richard Sanz, Nosso´s highlight is its fineness, with some delicate floral aromas with an great ageing potential.
Nosso “is a wine from nature” as Richard describes it; through this wine you can find the true expression of the verdejo grape, from the soils and from the climate in the area of Rueda where the single plot exists. The respectful way we act at the vineyards – where no chemical treatments are applied – and the no addition of sulphur makes of Nosso a wine free of alergens, suitable for vegans and celiacs.
The vines are planted in a plot with pebbly and calcareous clay soils where – according to the winery´s philosophy – only 100% preventitive and natural treatments are used, such as herbal infusions and whey. Slowly the vines will develop a thermic memory that create a self-defense from the external attacks of birds and insects.
The vintage 2015 was known as a good year, regarding the the climate and the healthy state on the grapes. With high temperatures and low rainfall, the grapes were smaller in size but more concentrated and, of high quality. The fermentation takes places with wild yeast and 100% of the wine is malo fermented to gain more volume and unctuous taste in the mouth, as well as exhibiting more microbial balance.
This is the third vintage that the Sanz´s sibling have launched to the market. A very special wine that has captured all the attention among the consumers and specialised media. From the total production of 26,000 bottles of Nosso, more than the 50% have been already reserved. The export market will take over 40% of the total production.
