Rioja (Labastida)

Lindes de Remelluri 'Labastida' village wine 2018


The steep, enclosed valley at Labastida nestled under the Cantabrias yields a structured, elegant but soft, fluid wine. Labastida is vibrant and satin-spiced, sweet-pipped red with florals afore and after (red florals not unlike a Ted Leamon wine). Red cherry, earth, field herbs, sweet pips, crunchy, concentrated elegance.
