Characteristics of Belondrade & Lurtón

Belondrade and Lurton is a white wine from Rueda prepared by Belondrade & Lurton, a winery founded by Didier Belondrade, which, in 1994, introduced the wine that revolutionized the Spanish white wine market. In 2000, he founded his winery in La Seca (Valladolid).

The climate in this area is continental, characterized by cold and very long winters and short springs with late frosts, followed by hot, dry summers. The changes in temperature between winter and summer are extreme, with a range of 50 degrees, which makes the grapes have an excellent balance between content and acidity. This wine is a varietal Verdejo from vineyards planted about 800 meters above sea level. The vineyard is 30 hectares, divided into 19 plots, and is planted on soils of boulders about 10-60 centimetres deep, with a clay subsoil layer and a deeper layer of limestone. Regarding the development, after the collection and sorting of the grapes takes place, the wine undergoes spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Subsequently, the wine spends 10 months in French oak barrels with its residue and 6 months in bottle before going on sale.

Alcohol: 13.5%

D.O. Rueda

Winery Belondrade y Lurtón

The D.O. Rueda is a denomination spanning across Castilla y León, along the River Duero and its tributaries. It is mainly white wines that are produced in this D.O., and Verdejo grapes are by far the most popular variety. With hints of flowers, fruit, scrub herbs and very fine aromas, these grapes give the wine a very strong personality.
