Belondrade y Lurton 2016

Belondrade y Lurton is the winery's emblematic wine and is the very essence of their terroir: an assemblage that reflects the diversity of their 22 plots of land. It is 100% Verdejo from Belondrade's own vineyards. Each of the plots is hand-harvested and then the lees are fermented and aged separately in French oak barrels. 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 in the bottle at least 5 months before being released for sale. This wine is crafted to be consumed within 6 to 8 years, when it will display all its qualities.
