The wine

Lirondo is an atypical Verdejo, made with a non-intervention approach, a faithful reflection of the land and the age. It has 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, and its is closer to citrus fruits or peaches than any strident tropical notes. A Verdejo which charts out a new horizon for the varietal.

What does this wine taste like?

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. 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.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The first wine they have produced without added sulfur is the 2020 Lirondo, made with organic Verdejo fermented with wild yeasts and kept with the lees that were not stirred for six months and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The color is cloudy and the nose quite wild, with notes of apples and a touch of cider. The palate is round and soft, finishing dry. It's hard to identify grape or origin. 15,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2021.

The winery

Isaac Cantalapiedra

Isaac Cantalapiedra

Manuel Cantalapiedra, son of Isaac Cantalapiedra, works as the oenologist for the family winery in La Seca (Valladolid). It was founded back in 1949 when Heliodoro, the grandfather, first planted his own vineyard. Ever since then, the passion for the land and organic agriculture expressed by generations of the family, have led to the production of wines with an unusual level of expressiveness for this region. Wines which express much more than the Verdejo grapes usually do, or...
