2019 Belondrade Quinta Apolonia

Riper fruit notes (pear, cantaloupe melon) meet brighter citrus (lemon and lime) before herbal elements (fennel and grass seed) come together on the finish. The mid palate has a certain creamy weight, but the finish is still bright and zippy; the attractive contrast reflects the way the wine was raised partly in barrel, partly in steel tank. A lovely study in contrasts. (NT 08/01/21)

Media Reviews

Josh Raynolds

Straw-gold. Dried pear, peach and floral qualities on the nose, and a subtle herb nuance in the background. Pliant and open-knit, offering fleshy orchard and pit fruit and honey flavors and a touch of bitter orange pith on the back half that adds refreshing bite. Finishes on a pleasingly bitter note, with gentle grip and a spicy snap of candied ginger. 90 points
