Local old timers say that “this tastes like Verdejo used to be” and Nosso represents a turning point and major milestone in Menade’s history so far: a natural Verdejo, not just from vineyards treated with neither copper nor sulphur (a trait that it shares with the rest of our wines) but no sulphur used in its vinification either. The key lies in our rigorous selection process for only very particular plots will do and it reflects the success of the meticulous and exacting attention we have lavished on our vineyards for more than ten years.
Following its alcoholic fermentation, we simply wait for malolactic fermentation to occur spontaneously, when it’s ready. This confers it with a very particular unctuous character, density and volume. In addition, it ensures that microbiologically it is completely stable, and can travel without problems. Consequently, it is enjoyed all over the world.
Nosso has all the aromas of the first day of harvest and of wet earth; and for those of us who grew up here on the Castilian meseta it recalls the smell of dew in the early dawn and takes us back to childhood. There’s honey too and overtones of fresh grape juice.
Nature in a bottle.
