Sobrenatural de Menade (Aged Natural Verdejo)
Sobrenatural de Menade (Aged Natural Verdejo) - Aromas of baked apple and custard. The complex, ripe palate has orchard fruit, apple skin, honey and delicate savoury characters. The creamy mouthfeel is balanced by salinity and minerality.
Sobrenatural is Menade's 'homage to nature' - wild yeast ferment of traditional 'Verdeja' grapes, with lees ageing for 36 months, and no sulphur added during vinification. Complex and characterful.
The Verdeja vines grow at 700-800m altitude. The grapes are hand harvested, and then vinification takes place by spontaneous fermentation using natural yeasts, and subsequent 'natural' malolactic fermentation. Controlled oxidative ageing in used oak barriques and vats for 36 months, with a further 6 months refinement in bottle.
