Bodegas Menade is a Spanish winery that produces wine in wine-producing region Rueda DO which covers parts of the two provinces Segovia and Valladolid.
Today I have tasting notes for their Menade (2011 vintage) for you. Menade is a white wine manufactured completely with organic Verdejo grapes. The wine aged in stainless steel tanks.
Menade has a straw yellow color. On the nose there were aromas of passion fruit, apricot and apple. Alcohol by volume was label listed at 12.9%. Menade has a mineral character. The wine is dry and creamy with notes of citrus fruits. Well-structured white wine with fruity aftertaste.
The wine is closed with a screw-cap.
Menade from Bodegas Menade retails for just 7€-8€. At that price you cannot go wrong with it. Perfect & affordable every-day white wine. The wine is therefore recommended. I saw it on wine-searcher but some of the links turned out to mislead to a different wine. So if you look for the wine on wine-searcher then be aware of this.
The winery’s website is currently under construction. If you still want to visit their site follow this link.
Together with the Menade I had saffron risotto and stuffed artichokes. I enjoyed that combination a lot. Do you know any other good white wines produced with Verdejo? Have you tried this one? Looking forward to read your comments.
