Red berries and minerals are accented by subtle hints of rosemary, orange peel, and rose petals. Silky tannins give way to a long spicy finish. Lindes de Remelluri is a groundbreaking pair of wines dedicated to expressing the attributes of two of Rioja’s most distinctive wine villages: Labastida and San Vicente de la Sonsierra. Viñedos de Labastida is a selection of 12.78 ha divided between eight growers and 28 small plots, which express the peculiarities of this municipality, the birthplace of many of the most important wines in the history of Rioja. The vineyards at altitudes from 450m to 780m offer an honest and clear representation of the terroir of the Labastida village wines. Labastida always has a later harvest due to elevation and offers an expressive and aromatic expression of tempranillo. The cooler, rockier, and higher elevation sites here produce a wine lower in alcohol but higher in acidity and tannins than that of neighboring San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
