Remelluri Lindes de Remelluri Labastida 2018
Expressive nose with aromas of ripe red fruits, licorice, vanilla and coconut. It has velvety tannins, the acidity is well-balanced by the flavor concentration and the finish is persistent.
Blend: 95% Tempranillo, 5% Garnacha
Produced with grapes from suppliers, the 2018 Lindes de Remelluri Viñedos de Labastida comes from a cooler and wetter year not without challenge. A blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano, it fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in barrels of different sizes and origins for 13 months. This is more reticent and serious, with a grainy sensation on the palate, beautifully textured. It has more austere tannins. This is probably the finest vintage for this wine so far. - 94pts Robert Parker
