Menade Rueda Verdejo

€18.99

A real stunner, this is a wine that we fell for many years ago and it has only improved in the years since.

Superbly polished, this is organic winemaking that is classy and accomplished. If you already like Rueda, this is a real treat at the top end of the market; if you don't know Rueda yet, try this - it will really open your mind!

The Rueda appellation is a brilliant source of bright, fresh and engaging white wines, but these have only relatively been seen in international markets.

Largely due to the investment of very large Spanish wineries that had the resource to push exports, the region blossomed in the 2000s and conscientious wineries like this one, run by Alejandra Sanz and her two brothers Marco and Richard.

Their organic and sustainable philosophies are far-reaching with biodiversity projects established across the vineyard territory for all sorts of projects, including wine. They are 6th-generation viticulturalists and winemakers and have become hugely successful (against the odds, as they say themselves) establishing the winery only in 2005.

This is fresh, textural and complex wine. Bright green and yellow apple flavours with honeysuckle and tropical notes. Delicious.

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!

★★★★★
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
