Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri is the oldest wine Estate from Rioja. This property belongs to two villages; Labastida Alava and San Vicente de La Sonsierra from Rioja Alta. Some of the best grape growers from those two villages have vineyards touching the Estate of Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri and for more than 30 years the grapes were brought to Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri. In 2009 they decided to separate those grapes from the others of the Estate and make two new wines called “Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida” and “Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente”. Lindes de Remelluri will show the best profile from the outstanding villages of Labastida and San Vicente de La Sonsierra.

The 2012 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida, from a warm and dry vintage, is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano. The grapes come from a number of growers from the village where Remelluri is located, Labastida. This is an austere zone that produces serious and mineral wines, more backward than the one from San Vicente. This is more of a Mediterranean vintage, with aromas of wild herbs and some notes of flowers. In general, this is a more elegant cuvée.See detailed press review
