Rioja – stunning wines, steeped in history but where young winemakers are doing things a little bit differently…
Traditionally winemakers have bought in grapes from growers all over the vast Rioja region then blended them to make their esteemed wines. Any ideas that grapes grown in a certain place showed different character to those grown in other locations was eschewed.
When Telmo and Amaia Rodríguez took over the Remelluri estate from their father they decided to change the winemaking practices and find the true roots of their Rioja wines. They are now making different wines which, they hope, each express the character of the locations the grapes were gown in.
One of these wines is Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de San Vicente. Lindes means "the borders of", and this wine is made only from grapes grown by eight local farmers in the village of San Vicente, whose land borders the estate. In a kind of homage to the growers, Telmo and Amaia aim to bring out the uniqueness of the “terroir” in the wine – the microclimate, the soil and how the farmers manage their vines.
The Remelluri Reseva and Gran Reserva are now made solely from grapes grown on the Remelluri estate, which is now fully organic and aims for the best practices in biodiversity. Almond, peach, fig and olive trees have been replanted to attract bees, which assist in the pollination of the vines.
The San Vincente has bags of ripe red cherry and raspberry, a sprinkling of five spice and liquorice, and approachable tannins. The Reserva is a more complex wine, showing earthy red and black fruit with notes of vanilla and cinnamon, and a long finish of cedar and leather.
Both will pair perfectly with roast lamb and vegetable tagine.

Seeing as it's #Sundayfunday, here's a little question for you. Having grown up in Thornbury I have often wondered what the name for people from our town would be. We all know that our dear neighbouring city-dwellers refer to themselves as 'Bristolians' (apparently that's called a demonym...who knew!?) but what do you call a person from Thornbury? Clean answers only please - remember you're talking to one! 😂
