Telmo Rodriguez - Bodega Lanzaga

2020 LZ

BLEND | Tempranillo, Graciano & Garnacha

VINEYARDS | Certified organic bush vines in the cool Lanciego zone within Rioja Alavesa from the Campoluengo, Las Rozas, Castillejo, El Romeral, Agozaderas and El Plano vineyards on clay – calcareous slopes.

WINEMAKING | Hand picked with wild yeast primary fermentation and malolactic in concrete tank followed by 6 months aging (also in concrete).


“The 2020 LZ comes from an early harvest after a warm year not without challenges (mildew). 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. ” - Luis Gutierrez
