Here is the Belondrade y Lurton, an excellent Crianza white wine from the DO Rueda. A single varietal Verdejo, this Spanish white wine is made from over 30-year-old vineyards located at an altitude of 750 metres above sea level. The organically grown vines grow in soils composed of sand and pebble stones that bring a distinctive freshness and complexity to the wine.
Each plot was separately harvested and vinified. First, the grapes were cold-soaked and spontaneously fermented with their own yeasts in 300-litre French oak barrels. After that, 15% of this single varietal Verdejo from Rueda underwent malolactic fermentation. Then Belondrade y Lurton 2018 was blended and aged on its lees in the barrels for 10 months with periodic stirrings. Finally, this wine of the Belondrade winery was aged for a further 6 months in the cellar prior to its release.
Elegant aromas with mineral notes and spicy fruit. Delicious mouth filling with mature and exotic fruit working in harmony with the oak. Good acidity and expressivity. Long and persistent.
Aerate 1 hour before drinking.
