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 slightly 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 expect from a Verdejo, with a very nice soft wood tone that gives the wine power. With this wine, just like with the Ossian Quintaluna, they have chosen to let the wine mature longer on its lees (sur lie) and the remainder longer on the wood in order to give (even) more complexity and finesse to the wine. . Due to this upbringing, it can certainly 'plummet' for a number of years and we recommend an ideal drinking window of 2024-2027

Fact: Clarisa and Apolonia are the names of Didier Belondrade's daughters. In the 'Appendices' tab you will find the official fact sheet of this beautiful 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 enormous wealth in the past. Due to the division of the domains, winemaking became so loss-making that many vineyards disappeared. Nowadays 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 old town, Belondrade and Lurton have opted for modern wine making.

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 enormous wealth in the past. The division of the domains made winemaking so loss-making that many vineyards disappeared. Today the area is very much on the rise 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 was made here in the past. Within the walls of this old town, Belondrade and Lurton have chosen modern winemaking. The Belondrade is considered by many to be the best white wine in Spain, but the Belondrade Apolonio and the great Quinta Clarisa are also there. Very nice.
