Winemaker Notes

The Lindes de Remelluri, meaning "Borders of Remelluri", crafts a vision of terroirs by focusing on the distinct styles of wines from Labastida and San Vincente. This selection is sourced form the vineyards of 8 growers around the town of San Vicente. The hotter and drier climate of these sites produce a wine that is less acidic and with lower tannins then that of Labastida.

An elegant and fine nose, with notes of ripe red fruits and some minerality. Smooth mouthfeel with balanced and ripe tannins.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Since 2010, the grapes from external suppliers have gone into two separate and different bottlings. One of them this 2011 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente, which in the future might extend the name to include the full name of the village, San Vicente de la Sonsierra where the grapes are sourced. As are all wines from here, this is a blend of grape varieties, including Tempranillo, Garnacha, Graciano, Viura and Malvasía fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barrels for ten months. It's interesting to see the different character of the vineyards of San Vicente and Labastida, a character quite evident in the two vintages so far (there was one Lindes in 2009, but it contained the grapes from both villages), with San Vicente producing more approachable wines and Labastida more austere and elegant juice since the ripening is slower and the grapes are always harvested at least one week later. There are ripe aromas of hay and straw, black cherries and spices. The palate is medium-bodied with rusticity and moderate acidity, approachable and improving with time in the glass, which points at a positive evolution in bottle. In this vintage I find that both Lindes evolve toward something quite similar in the glass, and the San Vicente behaves really well. 50,000 bottles.

This is a ripe, earthy, modern-leaning Rioja with aromas of blackberry, raisin and rubber. Soft and fleshy on the palate, what this easygoing number lacks in structure is made up for in charm. Ultraripe flavors of plum and berry come with a chocolaty accent, while the finish is smooth and tastes earthy and spicy.

Remelluri, Spain
Remelluri Winery Image
The Remelluri estate’s origins date back to the 14th century when monks from the Toloño monastery founded a sanctuary and farm at the site. The monks later abandoned the site but local hermits continued to maintain the shrine while the Real Divisa, a local community organization, maintained the farms to accommodate the needs of pilgrims who came to pray at the sanctuary. The estate was eventually split up and sold. The modern winery was established in 1967 when Jaime Rodríguez Salis purchased the vineyards at the heart of the former estate. Since then Remelluri has been devoted to recovering the old lands of this historic site and restoring the original vineyards.

Remelluri’s vineyards are located along the slopes of the Sierra de Toloño mountains in the valleys of Valderemelluri, La Granja and Villaescusa. The vineyards here are at the highest elevation in the region, south-facing and protected from the prevailing winds and frost. It is the unique microclimate of this area that gives the wines of Remelluri their personality.

Poor, stoney soil with layers of clay help to retain freshness while the Atlantic influence provides abundant rainfall and lower temperatures than there are in the rest of the region. The alternation of cool nights and hot days offers ideal conditions for proper phenolic ripening of Tempranillo.

Organic farming principles have always been utilized to ensure that the wines remain true to this unique terruño. Remelluri also uses an integrated system of agriculture with great respect for the environment. Hedges and plantations are maintained and nurtured. Trees are planted to complement the vineyard; almond, peach, fig and above all olive trees, which also facilitate pollination, as the flowers attract bees.

After years of perfecting his craft and gaining international recognition for his winemaking abilities, Telmo Rodríguez has returned to his family winery. Telmo seeks to remain true to his family estate’s vaunted history while guiding it into a bright tomorrow.

Highly regarded for distinctive and age-worthy red wines, Rioja is Spain’s most celebrated wine region. Made up of three different sub-regions of varying elevation: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental. Wines are typically a blend of fruit from all three, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta, at the highest elevation, is 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 and higher alcohol, which can add great body and richness to a blend.

Fresh and fruity Riojas labeled, Joven, (meaning young) see minimal aging before release, but more serious Rioja wines undergo multiple years in oak. Crianza and Reserva styles are aged for one year in oak, and Gran Reserva at least two, but in practice this maturation period is often quite a bit longer—up to about fifteen years.

Tempranillo provides the backbone of Rioja red wines, adding complex notes of red and black fruit, leather, toast and tobacco, while Garnacha supplies body. In smaller percentages, Graciano and Mazuelo (Carignan) often serve as “seasoning” with additional flavors and aromas. These same varieties are responsible for flavorful dry rosés.

White wines, typically balancing freshness with complexity, are made mostly from crisp, fresh Viura. Some whites are blends of Viura with aromatic Malvasia, and then barrel fermented and aged to make a more ample, richer style of white.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
