Sauvignon Blanc, first introduced locally in 1974, has adapted well to the region’s climatology and soils, and makes for a delightful wine that is ever so easy to drink. Ours has distinctly tropical overtones together with plethora of stone fruit elements and agreeable notes of fresh herbs, complemented by nice acidity and the minerality that ensues from the outcrops of limestone underlying our various plots.
As with Menade Verdejo, each parcel – for these vary widely depending on the soil type and orientation of the vines – is picked and vinified separately, fermentation is on the basis of the grapes’ natural, wild yeasts, and the wine is left briefly on its fine lees.
Menade Sauvignon Blanc 2020 has aromas of tropical and citrus fruits, and of stone fruit. Mineral, mint, mandarin and fresh basil touches. On the palate it is fruity and tropical, with herbal touches.
