Remelluri Lindes de Remelluri Labastida 2009
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.
