Considered by The Wine Advocate as "a great vintage", the Remelluri Reserva 2009 has a wide variety of aromas ranging from red fruits with hints of soil in the background to aromatic herbs. This is the first vintage in which Remelluri has solely used vineyards from its own farm in the winemaking process to ensure an even higher quality (if possible). It is also a wine that comes from organic and biodynamic viticulture, so that it respects to the maximum the character of the land and the grapes. An excellent choice for any occasion.

How to serve
The origin of the farm Remelluri is lost in the mists of time. A necropolis in the center of the property indicates the existence of a village in the 10th century.More about the Winery
The 2009 Remelluri Reserva aims at showing the character of Remelluri, as this is the first modern vintage that does not have grapes purchased from external suppliers. These grapes are now in the Lindes range of wines, but in the past they were blended with the estate grapes. The cool Remelluri vineyards behave very well in warmer years. This 2009 is very clean with predominant aromas of earthy red fruit intermixed with notes of vanilla and cinnamon, a satin texture with round, fine-grained tannins and quite classical and very well-proportioned style. This is a great vintage for Remelluri Reserva. The Remelluri name should be well-known to our readers. The big news here was the return of Telmo Rodriguez, who left the family winery to start his own projects throughout Spain, but returned in February 2010. Many changes have been made, and more will come. For example, he’s starting a solera with Viura, blending different vintages, in a kind of homage to old white Riojas. To start, he’s clearly separating the wines produced with the estate grapes and those produced with grapes purchased from external suppliers, for which he has created the line Lindes de Remelluri (Remelluri borders). He’s also implementing biodynamic practices in the vineyards.View more

Reviews of Remelluri Reserva 2009
Cherry colour, low layer. Nice smell of wood (cedar). I liked the taste of blackberries in this Remelluri Reserva.
I drank before the main meal, with starters and snacks.
Great now, maybe even greater in a few weeks.
Red with violet nuances. Aromas of dark chocolate. I liked the taste of blackberries in this Remelluri Reserva.
