Lindes de Remelluri Salinillas de Buradon 2020
Out of stock
Salinillas de Buradón, a small hamlet of Labastida, are the most northerly vineyards in Rioja and the last to be harvested. Salinillas de Buradón, which takes its name from the nearby ancient salt mines, became an important stop for travelers crossing the Sierra de Cantabria mountains, where they were required to pay a toll. The historic wines of the village eventually disappeared and were only just recovered beginning in the 1980s with plantings of bush-trained tempranillo and garnacha.
Viñedos de Salinillas de Buradón is made from 4.5ha of south-facing vineyards planted on highly porous quartz salts with bright red ferric clay and blue marl (rare for Rioja) that give the village a unique profile. The village produces serious, stately wines with excellent tension and a strong mineral streak.
