Remelluri Reserva 2006
Remelluri's vineyards are located along the slopes of the Sierra de Toloño mountains in the valleys of Valderemelluri, La Granja and Villaescusa. The vineyards here are at the highest elevation in the region, south-facing and protected from the prevailing winds and frost. It is the unique microclimate of this area that gives the wines of Remelluri their personality. Poor, stoney soil with layers of clay help to retain freshness while the Atlantic influence provides abundant rainfall and lower temperatures than there are in the rest of the region. The alternation of cool nights and hot days offers ideal conditions for proper phenolic ripening of Tempranillo.
