Rioja (Lantziego)

'LZ' Tempranillo 2021


LZ is a free-range expression via gravity and concrete. Un-oaked, juicy, deft, utterly typical of its place. Always wonderfully expressive of Lantziego’s cold clay dirt, LZ features crimson-spiced cranberry with rose petal florals and red lavender among plentiful herbs – pure smells of place. The palate is is built on a trademark fruit tannin natural acid twin-track. Simple and beautiful, with plenty of depth, spiced, earthily perfumed, ovoid, lissome and satisfying.

Wonderfully expressive of the cold clay dirt of Lantziego with a burst of Crimson spices, flower petals and all of the herbs! Wonderfully focused without any creamy vanilla but with plenty of depth and deeply satisfying.
