Macabeo. A bit simple and dilute – but it’s not Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc! A tad astringent but very nice label. 12% Drinking range: 2023 - 2023 Rating: 15.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Oct 2023)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles of wine (or 9 litre equivalent) or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified (4.5 litres) to get the discounted 'case price' for each bottle.

100% Macabeu from the historic “Finca El Renegado” vineyards, the oldest part of Bodegas Nodus estate. The vines are approximately 800 metres above sea level in the beautiful area surrounding the town of ‘Caudete de las Fuentes’. Pale yellow in colour; aromas of fresh citrus with hints of apple and pear with gentle mineral undertones. A very fresh and crisp palate with pineapple, citrus, pear and hints of white flowers.L&S (Sep 2023)

For the last thirty or so years, I have played a wine-hunting game at this time of year. The challenge I set myself is to find the two best party wines for the forthcoming festive season. The rules are simple: the wines must be under a tenner, drinking perfectly, competent crowd-pleasers, but also complex enough to satiate the taste buds of genuinely discerning wine lovers. This year, my chosen white and red come from the same property, making it the first time this has happened. My headliner white is a wondrous, certified organic Macabeu grown in the historic Finca El Renegado vineyards in the oldest part of Bodegas Nodus estate. The vines are high-altitude, approximately 800 metres above sea level, giving them fabulous freshness and verve. Graceful florals, crunchy green apple skin notes and crisp Chinese pear flesh mark the perfume and flavour. This is an intriguing, memorable and downright gluggable white wine and the label design is stunning, too.Matthew Jukes (Dec 2023)

Bodegas Nodus

When Adolfo De Las Heras Marín, acquired the El Renegado estate in 19895 it was 540 hectares of forest and vineyards, of which 80% was planted with 40 year old Bobal vines. Adolfo pioneered the introduction of other grapes such as merlot and cabernet.

It was Adolfo’s son also called Adolfo who upon taking over the winery in the late nineties, revolutionised the quality of production, importing additional varieties such as syrah, chardonnay, cabernet franc and updating the Barrel cellar and bottling line, as well as transforming the old Farmstead into a beautiful Hotel.

From the late nineties until 2006, Adolfo De Las Heras meticulously and expertly shaped the estate and the winery to his vision: The use of modern methods and producing limited numbers of the top quality wines.

Thus was born Nodus, one of the most significant estates of the D.O.
