From the same maker as the famous Belondrade y Lurton. The Apolonia is assembled using 30% of its big brother, the Beldondrade, and 70% non-wood bearing Verdejo. This makes this beautiful Verdejo a little less woody and buttery and therefore fresher. This is a delicious wine as an aperitif or with fish and shellfish. It has a straw yellow color, floral aroma with fresh fruit and light notes of wood. The character is exotically fresh as you would expect from a Verdejo with, very nice, a soft wood tone that gives the wine power. With the 2020 vintage, just like with the Ossian Quintaluna , they have chosen to let the wine mature longer on its dregs (sur lie) and the remaining part longer on the wood in order to give (even) more complexity and finesse to the wine. . Due to this upbringing, which can certainly 'plunge' for a number of years and we recommend an ideal drinking window of 2023-2025

Fact: Clarisa and Apolonia are the names of Didier Belondrade's daughters. In the tab: Annex you will find the official factsheet of this wine. we will send it to you automatically when you order this wine.

White wines have been made in the Rueda region for centuries. The grandeur of the buildings, churches, monasteries and estates of Nava del Rey and Rueda testify to the immense wealth of the past. Due to the division of the domains, winemaking became so loss-making that many vineyards disappeared. Today, the area is booming again. Didier Belondrade and Brigitte Lurton started making wine in 1994 in Nava del Rey, in the heart of the Denominación. In this old town there is a labyrinth of abandoned cellars. The size of these cellars suggests how much wine used to be made here. Within the walls of this ancient town, Belondrade and Lurton have opted for modern winemaking.
