The wine

The two wines making up the Lindes de Remelluri selection have become reference wines in Rioja Alavesa, and offer the chance to choose between a more mature and accessible red wine, Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente,  or the more austereserious and mineral profile of Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida.

What does this wine taste like?

A serious wine displaying an austere elegance and a deliciously velvety texture. It offers a splendid Picota cherry red colour with intense and rich aromas of fruit and aromatic plants over a stony background typical in wines from this area. It has freshness, good acidity and tastes clean, pure and powerful, lingering long on the palate.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Jancis Robinson and Parker

Mid garnet. Ripe and sweet, but still very fresh, on the nose. Finest chalky tannin texture with just a hint of spicy sweetness on the palate. Gently dry texture. Perfect for drinking now but no rush.

— Julia Harding MW (12/02/2019)JancisRobinson.com Vintage 2014 - 16 JANCIS ROBINSON

Produced with grapes from suppliers, the 2018 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida comes from a cooler and wetter year not without challenge. A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano, it fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in barrels of different sizes and origins for 13 months. This is more reticent and serious, with a grainy sensation on the palate, beautifully textured. It has more austere tannins. This is probably the finest vintage for this wine so far. 2018 has produced many great wines. 87,200 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2020.

Vineyards

From the 2010 vintage onwards, the vineyards of Lindes de Remelluri have been vinified separately, resulting in two different wines: Viñedos de La Bastida and Viñedos de San Vicente.

In the case of Viñedos de Labastida, the grapes come from the vines nearest to the Sierra de Cantabria mountain range, where the weather conditions contrive to bring on a later ripening of the grapes: more rainfall, more freshness in the atmosphere and a greater contrast in temperatures. This all results in a wine with a lower alcohol content, a bit more acidity, greater potential for tannins and an increased ageing capacity.

Granja Ntra. Sra de Remelluri

The Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri is to be found where once stood the Monastery of Toloño (Labastida), on the old estate that formerly belonged to the monks of St. Jerome who, in the 14th Century, worked the lands growing cereals and vines. There are still traces to be found of their community (a wine press and a cemetery). In 1968 Jaime Rodríguez Salís restored the vineyards and the ancient buildings, converting the monastery into the winery it is today, where the Remelluri...
