"Some richer, darker and deeper fruit character with plums, blackberries and a dark, earthy streak. The tannins are more upright, more elevated, and the fruit is richer and darker than in the Labastida. This has real presence, grip and energy. Try from 2021." (JS)

Winery Notes:
The Lindes de Remelluri, meaning "Borders of Remelluri", crafts a vision of terroirs by focusing on the distinct styles of wines from Labastida and San Vincente. This selection is sourced form the vineyards of 8 growers around the town of San Vicente. The hotter and drier climate of these sites produce a wine that is less acidic and with lower tannins then that of Labastida.

Vinification:
Fermented in stainless steel and aged 10 months in French oak.

Tasting Notes:
An elegant and fine nose, with notes of ripe red fruits and some minerality. Smooth mouthfeel with balanced and ripe tannins.
