The wine

The two wines making up the Lindes de Remelluri selection have become reference wines in Rioja Alavesa, and offer the chance to choose between a more mature and accessible red wine, Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente,  or the more austereserious and mineral profile of Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida.

A very expressive and open wine, with plenty of ripe fruit, powerful and elegant. The grapes from San Vicente tend to offer a riper wine with dustier tannins but why should we choose between this Lindes from San Vicente and the one from Labastida? Let's take both and enjoy the amazing diversity of this land!

What does this wine taste like?

The Lindes Viñedos de San Vicente is a more accessible wine, with aromas of ripe red fruits and light mineral undertones. On the palate it is smooth, with balanced mature tannins, and a pleasant finish of medium to long length.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker, Jancis Robinson, and Suckling

It's always interesting to compare the 2018 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente de la Sonsierra with the wine from the same year but from the external suppliers from Labastida, as the two wines are produced in the same way after a natural fermentation in small vats and oak casks and matured in a combination of barriques of different origins and aged for 14 months. In this cooler year, it has contained ripeness and moderate alcohol. This is more expressive and open, showing everything from the first moment. 2018 is a special year, cooler and with more rain, and the wines combine power with elegance. For Pablo Eguzkiza, the year is a little like 2013. It's medium-bodied with fine, abundant tannins, with plenty of fruit and a dry, chalky finish. 86,800 bottles produced. It was bottled between April and May 2020.

Darker and more stony on the nose, less sweet-fruited than the Labastida 2014 but no lack of dark-red fruit, damson and black cherry. Firm but now smooth tannins, chocolate texture. Super-fine and more elegant than the Labastida. Leaves your mouth clean and dry.

— Julia Harding (12/02/2019)JancisRobinson.com Vintage 2014 - 16.5 JANCIS ROBINSON

Lots of ripeness with blackberry, fresh-mushroom, bark and moss undertones. Full-bodied with powerful tannins, yet they have a pretty fruit coating and end with complexity and candidness. Old-vine character.

Vineyards

From the 2010 vintage onwards, the vineyards of Lindes de Remelluri have been vinified separately, resulting in two different wines: Viñedos de La Bastida and Viñedos de San Vicente.

Production of Viñedos de San Vicente is carried out using grapes which come from the vines closest to the River Ebro, where the parcels are sandier and there is less minerality conferred. The greater distance from the Sierra de Cantabria mountains also results in different climatic conditions: less rainfall, more dryness and less contrast in temperatures. All this brings about an earlier ripening of the grapes and consequently a higher alcohol level, smoother tannins and less acidity which will also reduce its ageing capacity, when compared with the Lindes de Remelleuri Viñedos de Labastida.

Granja Ntra. Sra de Remelluri

The Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri is to be found where once stood the Monastery of Toloño (Labastida), on the old estate that formerly belonged to the monks of St. Jerome who, in the 14th Century, worked the lands growing cereals and vines. There are still traces to be found of their community (a wine press and a cemetery). In 1968 Jaime Rodríguez Salís restored the vineyards and the ancient buildings, converting the monastery into the winery it is today, where the Remelluri...
