Description

This Remelluri Rioja Reserva 2015 is an iconic wine and the flagship wine of Telmo Rodriguez’s Remelluri estate; Telmo is renowned for his stance against the more commercial style of Rioja. This wine is produced with minimal intervention from old vine Tempranillo grapes blended with a little Graciano and Garnacha (Grenache) and it is certified organic. The 2015 vintage was hot and dry and old vines fared better than young vines in the heat though volume was lower. Flavour ripeness was high and the heat helped soften the tannins meaning this wine is very approachable and is displaying lots of red berry flavours together with the spicy, savoury and forest floor notes. It’s a complex but elegant Rioja Reserva that never disappoints!

 

Rioja is one of two wine regions with Spain’s highest qualification level, DOC or DoCa, the other region being Priorat. There is so much Rioja on the UK market and much of it over-priced, overly sweet and over-oaked because that became the trend from the turn of the century. But there is a danger of the DOC qualification being devalued which is why Telmo is rebelling – or going back to basics. I have had the good fortune to meet him a couple of times and he has told me that Rioja should not be a “recipe”, that there is fortunately no longer one style of Rioja as modern winemakers like him focus on the fruit, the ‘terroir’ and more traditional methods. Telmo has been described by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate as “Rioja’s number one Terroirist”.

Producer's Notes

“The nose is very pronounced, displaying typical Rioja aromas of ripe strawberries, dark plums, cream, vanilla and hints of sweet liquorice. On the palate it is elegant, with well-integrated alcohol, fine-grained tannins and good flavour concentration.”

Awards

94 points – RobertParker.com
“The estate red 2015 Reserva was produced with Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano from their 86 hectares of vineyards. It’s from an early harvest after a warm and dry year that achieved perfect ripeness with some rain at the end of the cycle. It fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and oak vats and matured in barrel for 21 months. It combines youth with development, power with elegance and comes through as clean and defined, with a medium to full-bodied palate, focused flavors and a dry but lively finish.”
