Organic White Wine

(White) Neleman | Just Fucking Good Wine | Spain | 2019

Tasting NotesTasting NotesTasting NotesTasting Notes

Aged in new French oak, we obtain a full-bodied, powerful wine with lots of ripe tropical fruit, cinnamon and nutmeg, a touch of vanilla from the wood, with a smooth and unctuous finish with a pleasant freshness. It is kept in optimal conditions for up to 4 years after harvest. "The year 2019 is even more spectacular in flavor, more intense!" Derrick Neleman.

OUR WINEMAKER

   

Neleman, a winery with more than 2,500 co-owners, is the largest wine community in Europe. We make wines that are 100% organic and 100% vegan. We do this with love, with new techniques, with a sense of design and with a message: drink organic wine. Because organic viticulture, without poison and additives, produces fantastic wines, jubilant reviews and above all a more beautiful world.

Sustainability is in our genes. For every 173 bottles of wine we make, we plant a tree in the Parque Natural de las Hoces del Cabriel. This helps to reduce CO2 emissions, increases biodiversity and restores the local landscape to its more natural state. We only use (natural) cork to seal our bottles and we also collect corks for reuse.

WHAT IS ORGANIC WINE?

Organic wines need organic grapes, so farmers eschew the use of artificial pesticides, chemical fertilizers and herbicides. The US and EU, two of the most prominent bodies in the organic wine certification game, have different rules regarding ‘organic’, particularly concerning the cellaring practices (which relates to how wines are stored before getting into the bottle).

So wine can be made with organically-grown grapes but needs to use organic yeast and avoid sulfites to be a USDA-certified organic wine. Similarly, complex rules exist in the EU, but total sulfite levels are limited (rather than banned). In both cases, the entire winemaking facility – and not just the farm – has to use organic practices.

That might seem complicated, but it’s easier if you just stick to the golden rule: follow the organic certification rules in respective winemaking regions. If possible, try to learn about the winemaker to see how they comply with organic legislation (or organic methods) in their country. If you ever get the chance, a visit to an organic farm is a fantastic opportunity to understand the sustainable vision of organic farmers.
