Bodega Lanzaga, Corriente Rioja 2017



The term Corriente was used in the early 20th Century to describe good, approachable everyday wines drunk by ordinary people, that reflect their region. From Compañia de Vinos Telmo Rodriguez – a project set up by Telmo and partner Pablo Eguzkiza to identify old vineyards planted with native varieties – this is creamy and spicy, combining berries, spicy oak and earthy tannins and makes an excellent food wine. The grapes come from old bush vines in Lanciego and Viñaspre around the village of Lanciego de Álava in Rioja Alavesa north of the river Ebro. The vineyards sit across two main soil types: slopes of calcareous-clay and shallow, low fertility soils on sandstone plateaus. The sites lie at between 480 and 650m above sea level and have a range of orientations. Farming on the Lanzaga estate is certified organic. They also buy grapes from some traditionally managed vineyards.
