    Winemaker Notes

    Unlike any Rioja you've tasted before. Made from selected grapes the oldest vines in the highest vineyards of La Rioja near the village of Lanciego. Here is the ideal micro-climate to produce exceptional fruit, moderated by the heat of the Mediterranean and the cool breezes of the Atlantic, the Tempranillo vines are planted on the terraces in amongst the delimited olive groves.

    Telmo Rodriguez and Pablo Eguzkiza have selected the very best grapes to reinterpret the creation of traditional Rioja. This is a delicate wine yet fleshy, reflecting the soil and climate; structure and fruit in perfect balance. A very long and engaging finish it is drinking extraordinarily well now and will benefit further aging.

    Bodega Lanzaga, Spain
    Compañía de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez was founded in 1994. Telmo - a self-professed “driving winemaker”- came to Rioja searching for the soul of the region, returning to the villages where a few special plots express themselves. Lanciego is a village in the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria mountains, reflecting the contrasting contributions of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic influences. Native grape varieties, grown on the best soils and subject to the best viticulture are the philosophical tenets, allowing the wines to express their innate qualities thanks to simple, but scientifically-grounded winemaking.

    Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

    Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
