2010 Remelluri - Lindes de Remelluri Vinedos de Labastida Alavesa
"Remelluri is one of Rioja's most historic estates, farmed since medieval monks settled here in the 14th century. The vineyards are situated high in the Sierra Cantabria mountain range at almost 2000 feet above sea level, and the winery houses the remains of an ancient wine press. The cellars are proudly graced with the magical touch of Telmo Rodrigues, who returned to his family's estate bringing a light Burgundian approach to winemaking with him. The results are sublime. Blending Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano and Viura from the vineyards of Labastida, he is able to achieve notes of black currant and cherry on an earthy palate, offering both power and grace in this memorable cuvee." -SFWTC Staff

"The 2010 Lindes de Remelluri Vinedos de Labastida is produced with grapes purchased from suppliers in the village of Labastida. Telmo Rodriguez returned to Remelluri in February 2010, and the 2009 wines from external suppliers were already blended together. In 2010, he kept the different lots produced with purchased grapes separated by village. In these wines he wants to give protagonism to the grape growers and to the villages. The wines are fresh and fluid, but this is gentler and finer, softer than the one sourced from fruit grown in San Vicente, subtler and more elegant. In 2010, the grapes were harvested late, and the ripening process was slow, which resulted in very pure fruit, and a Burgundian wine with lots of freshness, great acidity and clean and pure flavors. A new delicious way for Rioja. For the quality this wine delivers I think it has a very good price."
