M. Cantalapiedra "Lirondo" Verdejo 2021

$21.99
This wine seriously overdelivers: ripe, textured fruit- like grapefruit and meyer lemons, with medium tannins and flowery edges. The result is a crowd-pleasing, yet sort of cerebral, 'orange' wine that will sing with some seafood off your grill.

Manuel Cantalapiedra, son of viticulturist Isaac Cantalapiedra, work some 20 hectares of vineyards, spread over several plots in the municipality of La Seca - the heart of the Rueda appellation and home to the Verdejo grape. While most producers in the region have embraced the ultra-modern styles of Verdejo (industrial farming, cultured yeasts, acidification, and cold fermentation) to make an internationally appealing wine, the Cantalapiedra vineyards are certified organic and their winemaking is resolutely natural. Although the Cantalapiedra's work is outside of the Rueda D.O., one could say that they are the "Torchbearers for Real Rueda."
