Lirondo is a Verdejo parcel wine from their “Las Escuclillas” vineyard. The grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed, and given a gentle pneumatic pressing. After 12 hours on the skins, the wine was racked and wild yeast fermented in stainless steel tank, spending 8 months on fine lees before bottling in June without any fining, filtration or added SO2 (21 mg/l in total).
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.”
