Winemaking Process

Produced only during exceptional vintages, when grapes from the best plots of the different microclimates of the estate are blended to create the property’s ideal and unique wine. Granja Nuestra Señora de Remelluri follows the tradition of the Gran Reservas of Rioja, remaining in the winery for a minimum of seven years.
Poor limestone terraces of calcareous, clayey soil, with bedrock surfacing in certain areas. These terraces consist mainly of sandstone and loam, the origins of which date back to the Quaternary Period. Traditional and ecological winemaking techniques, with biodynamic treatments.
Entirely hand-picked in 20kg. cases. Harvest begins at the beginning of October and finishes at the end of October/ beginning of November. Selection in vineyard as well as on table. Aged Twenty-seven months in barrels of various ages and volume
 

Tasting Note

Beautiful cherry colour with ruby red edges. Clean and bright wine with abundant thin, elegant tears. Very elegant nasal aromas, with a good intensity, in which a nice balance is noticed. Its toasted and spicy aromas, its hints of undergrowth and aromatic herbs are released along with intense notes of fleshy, ripe red fruit with a touch of liquor, hints of leather and complex but expressive balsamic aromas. Such as in the nose, in the palate, this red wine is simply elegant. It has a mellow and structured mid palate, with a good acidity and ripe and sweet tannins. A round and balanced crispy wine with a long and very persistent finish.  A great wine from Rioja.
