Winemaker's Notes

Remelluri are rightly renowned as one of the finest producers in the Rioja region and it's easy to see why. This is a finely crafted, elegant style with great structure and complexity. The nose is warm and inviting with hints of wild strawberry and spice, overlaid with light wood notes. The palate is silky smooth, mellow and warm with savory, ripe berry fruit, touches of tobacco and a little spice.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Remelluri is composed of 90% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano, and 5% Garnacha fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged for 16 months in seasoned French and American oak. Deep purple in color, it reveals an already complex bouquet of exotic spices, leather, violets, mineral, and assorted black fruits. In the glass it is succulent with plush fruit, terrific grip and volume, and a lengthy, rich, supple finish. It can be approached now but is likely to continue filling out for several more years.

The modern winery of Remelluri was established in 1967. The vineyards are farmed organically and the winery employs an integrated system of agriculture. The winemaker is the renowned Telmo Rodriguez. Remelluri’s Blanco is the reference standard against which all others are measured in virtually every vintage."
