Review

This is the first of the wines from the Belondrade winery, and one of the best white wines in Spain. A mature, elegant white wine inspired by the Burgundy whites, that has in fact surpassed all expectations when it comes to quality from the Verdejo, the indigenous grape varietal of Castile.

NOTE: Best decanted and served not overly cold, between 10º and 12º C.

The winery was designed by the Frenc...
