The wine shows a golden colour and a more developed nose with notes of yellow fruit, pollen and hay and a little quince too with time in the glass. The palate is soft and tender, with integrated acidity, very good balance, power and elegance and the pleasant bitter twist in the finish.
It shows a little honeyed and is fully open and reveals notes of tangerine peel and white flowers. The palate is velvety and tender, with a soft texture, caressing, elegant and subtle.
The 2016 Belondrade y Lurton is not only one of the best whites in Rueda but a true pioneer in the world of modern quality white wines from Spain. It's pure Verdejo from different vineyard plots in the village of La Seca that has been getting fine-tuned, especially when it comes to the integration of the oak with the fruit. 2016 was not an easy year, and they seem to have done a brilliant job. It's subtle, insinuating, nuanced and fresh, with focused flavours and aromas and a very fresh palate with terrific balance. It should age harmoniously in bottle. Kudos to the Belondrade team for a truly great Rueda!

Castilla y Leon is a region in northwestern Spain that is known for producing some of the finest wines in the country. The region has a long and rich history of winemaking, dating back to the Roman era. Today, Castilla y Leon is home to a number of top-quality wineries that produce a wide range of wines, from crisp whites to full-bodied reds.

One of the most famous wineries in Castilla y Leon is Bodegas Vega Sicilia. Founded in 1864, this historic winery is known for producing some of the finest red wines in Spain. The winery's flagship wine, the Vega Sicilia Unico, is a blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that is aged for at least 10 years before release. The result is a complex and elegant wine with notes of black fruit, leather, and tobacco.

Another top winery in Castilla y Leon is Bodegas Emilio Moro. This family-owned winery has been producing wine in the region for over 120 years. The winery is known for its full-bodied red wines, which are made from the Tempranillo grape. The Emilio Moro Malleolus is a particularly noteworthy wine, with its intense aromas of black fruit, vanilla, and spice.

In addition to these well-known wineries, Castilla y Leon is also home to a number of up-and-coming producers. One such producer is Bodegas Mauro, which was founded in 1978. This winery is known for its modern approach to winemaking, which involves using new oak barrels and carefully controlling the fermentation process. The result is a range of wines that are rich and full-bodied, with notes of black fruit, chocolate, and coffee.

Overall, Castilla y Leon is a region that is rich in history and tradition when it comes to winemaking. Whether you are looking for a classic red wine from a historic winery or a modern, innovative wine from an up-and-coming producer, you are sure to find something to suit your tastes in this region.
