In stock
A great price for this organic modern Rioja that is perfect for the barbeque or the dinner table. From the famous Telmo Rodriguez, the LZ flips the script on the usual Rioja reds. With no oak aging, the usually minor grape Graciano leads the blend and brings the Beaujolais-like brightness and aroma which it does so well. Refreshing and easy to enjoy, the LZ is one to try!

Its Origins

Compañía de Vinos Telmo Rodrigue was established in 1994 The aim was to re establish old vineyards of native grape varieties in forgotten regions Wines produced in Navarra, Rueda, Alicante, Toro, Aragón, Valedorras and Cigales allowed the partners to study Tinto fino, Tinta de toro (Tempranillo), Garnacho, Monastrell, MencÍa, Verdejo, Viura and Godello grape varieties in depth. The aim was to reflect a sense of place based most of all on good viticulture and outstanding growers.

What The Critics Say

92/100 James Suckling

"This is a fresh, easy red with cherry, berry and orange peel. Medium body. Bright acidity. Easy and bright. No wood. Concrete. Tempranillo and garnacha. From organically grown grapes. Drink now."

91/100 RobertParker.com, Luis Gutierrez

"The Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano grapes come from their own organically farmed vineyards and fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts for 15 days; the wine matured in concrete for six to seven months before bottling. It's very primary and has notes of licorice and a juicy texture. Pablo Eguzkiza was telling me he likes 2020 better than 2019. The wine shows very good balance and fine, round tannins. 72,2020 bottles produced. It was bottled in April 2021."
