90% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha & 5% Graciano

A fine and elegant Rioja from a unique producer. Remelluri is the family estate of Telmo Rodrigues, a legend of Spanish wine whose reputation is hard to overstate. This label is both a departure from tradition and a preservation of it: it was created to maintain the estate's long-standing contract suppliers in a neighbouring village, yet bottled as a village wine — against Rioja blending traditions. By contrast to its companion from 5km away on the other border or "Linde" (the Mediterranean-influenced San Vincente village), Labastida's 400-years+ in wine have enjoyed a higher rainfall and a cooler Atlantic breeze, producing an elegant and feminine red of "crunchy minerality" and juicy blueish fruits. Terroir Rioja for a very cheap price — this needs to be experienced.

Reviews for the 2013 vintage below…

93+/100 Luis Gutierrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2013 vintage)
"The Remelluri Estate is between the Labastida and Rivas de Tereso/San Vicente, so that's how they separated the fresh, entry-level reds produced with grapes purchased from 12 or 13 suppliers (for both Lindes). The 2013 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida is a wine that is always floral, subtler and with more elegance. The cold (and challenging) vintage produced a lighter, more ethereal wine, with a fine thread in the palate; it is nicely balanced and has a remarkable finish, with the textbook finesse of the tannins from Labastida. I like this very much. Some 45,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2015. In the terrible 2017 vintage that was finishing fermenting when I tasted this 2013, they didn't produce half that quantity. Drink 2018 – 2023."
