Review

Quinta Apolonia is the second white wine from Belondrade. It is the result of blending two wines that are different although from the same grape varietal: the Verdejo. The first is produced from grapes grown in the bodega's youngest vineyards and is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks under temperature-controlled conditions. The second (almost a third of the coupage) is from wine left to mature for three months on its lees.

This Verdejo wine reveals most clearly the vegetal aromas characteristic of the varietal used in its production, as well as stone fruit (peach and apricot) and a pleasantly refreshing citrus background. On the palate all the richness of the heat comes through. Here is a generous, enveloping, glycerine-touched wine, creamy and unctuous, with a fine acidity that provides a distinct freshness and long-lasting aromas.

We are certainly encountering here a most individual perception of the Rueda Verdejo (although for marketing reasons it does not fall within the D.O) from one of the most highly acclaimed wineries of the region that is definitely worthwhile discovering.

Excellent Verdejo

Fruity wine with lovely viscosity. We drank it in a Palma restaurant, found it on Vinissimus, and received it a few days later. Great service and a great wine, as ever with Vinissimus

Apolonia

This is one of the best white wines I have tasted and represents excellent value for money. Floral, citrusy, yet with a subtle roundness- I recommend Belondrade Apolonia thoroughly!

Favorite

My all time favorite wine in Spain. It is a super good value for money and really worth. Of course the Big sister is even better but in general a super good buy.

Verdejo with character

Second wine of Rueda top bodega. Perfumed nose of green herbs, yellow fruits as well as citrusy. Maturing in stainless steel makes nice accent.

Beautiful crisp white wine.

This is one of the best white wines I have had in a long time. Perfect as an aperitif or to accompany a meal. All round winner.

Wine from Belondrade

Belondrade

The Belondrade winery was founded in 1994 by Didier Belondrade, a Frenchman who became enamoured with Spain. His objective was to produce an excellent white wine inspired by the great Burgundy whites, using Rueda’s traditional grape variety, the Verdejo. For several years he worked in rented premises in Nava del Rey, until he was able to open the doors of his new winery in 2000, situated on the actual estate on the outskirts of La Seca. The winery was designed by the Frenc...
