Belondrade Y Lurton is a seriously brilliant white wine that might just be the hottest ticket in Europe right now. You may have noticed this wine and its stand-out orange label on restaurant tables from Ibiza to Portofino; but if you’ve never come across it before, you need to act now to remedy this situation. This 100% Verdejo wine is a textural delight with masses of rich flavours balanced by a distinctive saltiness. You can imagine drinking this anywhere, anytime, on its own, with food… it’s the catch-all white of the summer and looks pretty darn good on the table as well.
This is the winery's emblematic wine. A wine that comes exclusively from their ecological estate Quinta San Diego. Each of the plots is hand-harvested and then the lees are fermented and aged separately in French oak barrels.
Spontaneous, controlled alcoholic fermentation.
At the end of the 10-month ageing with lees, a selection and "assemblage" is made. The entire production is bottled at the same time and stays at in the bottle at least 5 months before going onto the market. This wine is crafted to be consumed within 6 to 8 years, when it will display all its qualities.
Something new from Rueda. This light lemon coloured wine has crisp citrus fruit flavours with really refreshing acidity. A lovely modern style. Good aperitif wine or with a variety of summer dishes.
