Bodega Lanzaga, founded in 1994, is the creation of Telmo Rodríguez (son of Jaime Rodríguez Salís and Amaia Hernandoarena of the famed Remelluri estate) and his partner Pablo Eguzkiza. The village of Lanciego is situated in the foothills of the Sierra de Cantabria Mountains, reflecting the contrasting Mediterranean and Atlantic influences. Its 19 hectares of organically farmed vines are where Telmo seeks to recreate the vineyards of 150 years ago, where as many as 50 grape varieties would all be planted together. This is a delightful blend of tempranillo, garnacha, graciano, and viura from a mix of different vineyards in the Alavesa sub-region, co-fermented with wild yeasts. Blackberry and ripe red fruit dance around a silky frame that shows incredible clean freshness and purity with a backbone of sultry dark fruit and minerality. Certified organic, vegan.
