This is BELONDRADE's "second wine", echoing the spirit of the second labels from the Chateaux in Bordeaux. With this wine, we are seeking a different interpretation of BELONDRADE Y LURTON, one that is fresher and more varietal. It is named after Didier's elder daughter and was crafted for the first time in 2002. It is the outcome of an "assemblage" between one third barrel fermented wine and two thirds wine fermented in stainless steel tanks and in concrete tanks. It blends the acidity and spark of the Verdejo grape with the structure and complexity brought from the part that is fermented in barrels.
- The white wine Belondrade Quinta Apolonia has a clean, bright, straw yellow colour with some greenish glints and some golden tinges
- This white wine made from Verdejo shows some fragrant notes of white fruit, freshly cut grass, citrus, lime rind, dry fruit, fennel, toast and fresh hay. A delightful white wine partially aged in oak.
- Fresh and fruity, showing a remarkable acidity and an unctuous body. This white wine by Bodegas Belondrade is very smooth, with the herbal component showing more prominence on the palate, complemented by remembrances of citrus and spices. Quinta Apolonia has a long, deliciously bitter finish.
