Lindes de Remelluri Rioja "Viñedos de San Vicente de la Sonsierra" '20
"One of the most important Rioja villages, San Vicente de la Sonsierra is located on the left bank of the Ebro river 11km from Haro in the foothills of Sonsierra hills, which is part of the Rioja Alta subzone. San Vicente is located on a hill overlooking the Ebro Valley and is surrounded by vineyards and the ruins of the San Vicente castle, established in the 10th century as a fortress for the people of the Kingdom of Navarre. This region has considerable elevation change from north to south, with the Toloño mountain range at over 1000 meters, descending to 500m in the Ebro Valley. San Vicente and Ábalos are the only towns in La Rioja on the left bank of the Ebro river. However, they have more in common in style, geography, and geologic composition with Rioja Alavesa.
Viñedos de San Vicente de la Sonsierra is a selection of 36 vineyard plots occupying a total of 14.2ha, worked by 11 winegrowers, expressing a variety of soils and orientations ranging from the sandy terrains of the Quaternary Period alongside the Ebro River at 425m, to the poorer, rocky soils, consisting of sandstone and loam from the Tertiary period, rising to as high as 695m. San Vicente is defined by the generous hillside landscapes that offer a wine with a broad and silky texture, which envelops a defined, fresh structure and excellent balance."
"The 2020 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente de la Sonsierra is more fruit-driven, primary and perfumed than most of the other bottlings, juicier, with a sensation of higher ripeness (despite having lower alcohol, 13.79%) and slightly dusty tannins. The breakdown here was 88% Tempranillo, 10% Garnacha and 2% other varieties. 68,422 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2022. 92+ Points, Luís Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate"
