Description

So let’s leave aside the controversial label, clearly designed to catch your attention and provoke either a hearty chuckle or a disapproving frown — this is a really good wine!

Composed of 70% of the rare Verdil grape with 10% each of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier, this is a fine, dry white with punchy, zesty citrus, nettle, pear and passion fruit flavours. Refreshing, complex and long on the finish, we actually think the label statement oversimplifies this terrific organic white.

Verdil is an indigenous grape of the Valencia wine region in the south east of Spain, almost extinct by the mid-1990s but slowly being revived by passionate wine growers keen to protect this distinctive native varietal. Altitude is essential as Verdil doesn’t cope well with high heat or humidity, so these vineyards at over 600m are ideal.

Producer: Neleman Wines

Certainly one of the most eye-catching ranges of wines we stock, Neleman Wines is the inspiration and dedicated missionary of Derrick Neleman, native Dutchman and graduate of biodynamic farming who settled in Spain and found his calling producing "good wine to save the world".

All vineyards are organically farmed, grapes are transported by bicycle and wines are produced vegan-friendly, all part of a mantra of sustainability, protecting the environment and serving nature: "Taking good care of nature not only serves us with good wine today but more importantly with good wine til eternity!". There's even innovation in packaging, with recyclable cork stoppers and wine in boxes, and choosing young artists, designers and architects to design labels. Oh, and the wines are really really good too!
