Review:

At the family-run winery which the Cantalapiedras own in La Seca, at the heart of the Rueda DO, there's a wealth of expertise gained over several generations. Grandfather Heliodoro planted his first grapevine when he was only 15 years old and passed on all his knowledge to members of his family, down to Isaac, his son, and then to Manuel, his grandson. Isaac and Manuel set up the present-day winery at the end of 2014 and extended their territory to 21 hectares of pebble-covered vineyards.

The ground, the terroir in fact, has been the focus of this family project right from the very first day; concern for the environment and organic and biodynamic practices, non-negotiable mainstays. In parallel, Manuel started up a venture on his own to produce two new natural wines, Mondo and Lirondo, two wines made with a non-intervention approach, a faithful reflection of the land and the age.

Lirondo is an atypical Verdejo, an intense golden colour and a bit cloudy which demonstrates respect for the wine's natural properties. It has an organic aroma, of yeast and straw, not really reflecting the preconceived sensations of the varietal. Its fantastic acidity draws attention to a fine minerality and a very elegant flow through the palate, featuring fresh, balsamic notes of undergrowth, small yellow flowers and delicate aniseed touches. After a little time in the glass, the expected herbaceous hints appear, but always from a pleasant perspective. The fruit is rather more discreet, very far from the excesses accrued by some of the region's whites; closer to citrus fruits or peaches than any strident tropical notes. A cool, rocky undertone accompanies the wine during a round passage, extremely rounded! With a delicate mouthfeel on a background of hay and bakery hints. Lirondo is a Verdejo which charts out a new horizon for the varietal, where the fruit gives a helping hand to the acidity and obligatory bitter notes of this Castilian grape.

Wonderful colour and great biodynamic taste. I would highly recommend this wine to any natural wine enthusiasts. Fruity lychee flavours with a slight bit of funk expected from a natural wine.
