"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. 259,400 bottles produced. It was bottled in April and May 2018."

James Suckling 94
"Ripe and beautiful with ripe berries, hazelnuts and spice. Some crushed stone, too. Full-bodied, yet tight and focused. Generous and racy. Goes on for minutes. Drink or hold."
About Remelluri
Remelluri's origins date back to the tenth century when Count Erramel, a Basque warrior and aristocrat from Álava, founded a small village on the site (uri in Basque). Over the years, the name "Erramel Uri" evolved to Remelluri. The first wines were made here in the fourteenth century, when Hieronymite monks tended the monastery atop the nearby Sierra de Toloño mountains and founded a sanctuary and farm on the site.

The modern winery was established in 1967 when Jaime Rodríguez Salís and his wife Amaia purchased the vineyards at the heart of the former estate and began to make wine from the ancient, abandoned site. Since then, Remelluri has been devoted to restoring the original, historic vineyards to their fullest potential. Remelluri became the first single-vineyard Rioja of the modern era with its release of the 1971 vintage, staying true to Jamie and Amaia's concepts of terroir and specificity.

Jaime's children Telmo and Amaia took over the project from their father in 2009. Their return to their family winery marked the beginning of a new era at Remelluri: both a renewal of purpose, and a commitment to the process of uncovering and revealing the truth of Remelluri. Telmo's winemaking partner in all of his projects, the prolific Pablo Eguzkiza (trained at Château Petrus), has helped implement numerous changes in the vineyards and winery that can now be seen in recent vintages.

Organic farming principles have always been utilized here. Chemicals have never been used at the property, and the entire production has been certified organic since the 2014 vintage.
