Telmo Rodriguez feels that with the 2009 vintage of LZ he is now able to more fully express the special area of Lanciego that he works in with this wine. The vineyards in Lanciego have old Tempranillo,
Graciano and Garnacha, and grapes are harvested earlier than for Lanzaga or Altos de Lanzaga. 2009 was the first vintage of LZ vinified at the newly built cellars in Lanciego, and vinification switched from
stainless steel tank to cement tank. The winemaking is straightforward, allowing the pure fruit, mineral and spice characteristics of the wine to shine.
"The 2009 LZ is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha, and Graciano from the Alavesa region of Rioja. It was fermented and aged for 4-6 months in cement and stainless steel. Asian spices, violets, blackberry, and mineral notes inform the expressive bouquet. It opens in the glass to reveal savory, smooth, ripe, layered fruit and a pleasure-bent personality. Drink this outstanding value over the next 6 years.
The current Telmo Rodriguez collection includes wines produced in eight different DOs, all of them fermented with native yeasts. The fact that quality ranges from excellent to outstanding is a tribute to his talent and attention to detail."
