El Sauzal, 38359
Spain View map

Our vineyard stands some 500 meters above sea level in el Sauzal, at a spot known as La Hollera, on stony yet rich volcanic soil that time has helped to fashion. The steep terrain makes mechanised cultivation unfeasible and it is man’s hand that tends the vines. The sun that beats down from the early hours of the morning together with the soft sea breeze that blows add up to a very special microclimate for vine-growing. Producing 1,500 vines per hectare and an average age of 50, our vines grow along the ground for eight months before being raised up onto wooden stakes that support them until the grapes are picked. We grow Listán Negro, Listán Blanco and Negramoll, three varieties of grapes that gives our wines their original characteristics. We also experiment with a great many other pre-phylloxera varieties bequeathed by our forebears. – Description from AlexJelena

Well layered and I wish I could have some time to see this wine develop. Fine rich tannins, with a high acidty and full of fruit on the palate. Big cherry flavors densely pack with spice and earth. Fun wine, I look forward... Read More

  • Bodegas Luberri Rioja Monje Amestoy Reserva 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Almost blackish purple in color. The nose is earthy with cured cherry notes, fresh wood, mint, dill, and deep black fruits. Thick tannins, with a medium acidity. Depth is there, and but it needs some time and seems to be lacking a bit of purity. Flavors are of dark spices and dark fruits. 3.5/5 [NR] Read More
