About Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Rivas de Tereso

Did you know that in La Rioja it's quite common to find wines that "garnachean"? But, are you familiar with its meaning? This term, deeply rooted in the wine-making tradition, is related to the percentage of Grenache present in the wine. It emerged as a colloquial way to distinguish those wines with a more aromatic and floral character. So much so that they were even presented differently: while wines with a higher proportion of Tempranillo were bottled in Bordeaux-style bottles (with high shoulders), those that "garnachean" were bottled in Burgundy-style bottles (with sloping shoulders). Lindes de Remelluri, the project initiated by the prestigious family-run winery Remelluri, embraces this and many other practices with the aim of reviving 18th-century viticulture and highlighting the significance of the vintners' work prior to industrialization. Under the name Lindes de Remelluri, they offer a collection of village wines originating from the vineyards of the hamlets surrounding their estate Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri.

One of them, Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Rivas de Tereso, comes from a small mountainous village adjacent to Remelluri whose vineyards, located at an altitude of 634-702 meters, are up to 90 years old. Vines of Tempranillo, Grenache, and other native varieties are planted in calcareous clay soil with an abundance of stoniness and are cultivated according to biodynamic practices. Once the grapes reach their optimal ripeness, they are handpicked and immediately transported to the winery. There, the vinification is conducted in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts, and afterward, the wine is aged for 12 months in barrels of various sizes where it is refined until bottling.

Presented in the distinctive Burgundy bottle, Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Rivas de Tereso encapsulates the heritage of generations of winegrowers. A village wine that, as the old Riojan locals would say, "garnacheas" and which embodies the very essence of this high-altitude hamlet of San Vicente de la Sonsierra.
