Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.
Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente is the second proposal of the Lindes de Remelluri collection, produced by the Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri. It is a red wine produced from Garnacha, Graciano and Tempranillo vines, which results in a mature and elaborate wine with a particular flavour.
The grapes used in its preparation come from vineyards located in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, in the Rioja Alavesa. Its poor, rocky soils guarantee conditions of water stress that favour the production of balanced tannins, perfect for the grapes to develop their properties to the maximum!
During the harvesting period, the grapes are harvested by hand, taking special care to select the best fruit. After the must is extracted, it undergoes a fermentation process in stainless steel barrels, where the region's own yeasts are also added.
Once the vinification process has been completed, the wine spends a year in oak barrels in order to refine its flavours.
On the nose, its aroma evokes blackberries and black fruits, as well as spicy notes. The palate is silky, round and balanced. Elegant and with moderate acidity, it is a softer alternative to its counterpart, Viñedos de Labastida, which is characterised by its mineral notes.
A wine that will not leave you indifferent.
If you are a lover of wines with personality, good flavour and a pleasant structure, then this is an alternative that is certainly worth trying. Lovers of great reds who want to treat themselves to something different will also find Viñedos de San Vicente the perfect choice.
Moreover, on a gastronomic level, it is ideal to accompany stews, white meats and cured cheeses, as well as a wide variety of cured meats and sausages.
What are you waiting for to try it? You'll love it.
