Characteristics of LZ

LZ is a red wine from La Rioja region. It is produced by Telmo Rodríguez and is a blend of 3 different grape varieties; Tempranillo, Garnacha and Graciano.

The vines used to make LZ are grown using a head pruned system. They are located on slopes by the village of Álava Lanziego, where the soil is calcareous clay.

The harvest is carried out manually, with bunches being selected carefully. In the winery, the must is fermented with indigenous yeasts.

The aim of the Telmo Rodríguez ever since it´s foundation has been to redisover forgotten wines from different zones and regions in Spain.

Tasting notes LZ

LZ 2017 is a fresh, fluid and juicy red wine. A good vintage that once again displays all its aromatic potential with elegant aromas of red fruit, floral notes and a spicy touch. On the palate it is direct, lively and fresh.
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with scarce rainfall, spring started with a lot of rain, which favoured the growth cycle of the vine. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in great, healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is defined by a voluminous vintage that can be enjoyed from its youth.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
Sight Clean and bright, intense cherry colour with violet reflections. Nose LZ shows clean, crispy and honest nasal aromas with a medium intensity. Its initial notes of lively and crunchy red fruit are released along with some milky notes, which give way to some spicy nuances. Taste This is a fresh and stimulating red wine. It has a direct attack and a light mid palate with a very good, well-balanced acidity and a pleasant tannic sensation. Average finish with fruity hints and some mineral notes.

    It is safe to say that Telmo Rodríguez has the reputation of being one of the pioneers and best "driving winemakers", that is, winemakers that travel to different areas to produce wines from the same harvest, using only native varieties from their original regions, apart from paying special attention to the recovery of abandoned vineyards. Currently, Telmo Rodríguez, who enjoys being a winemaker more than an oenologist, is known in the wine industry for being one of the promoters of Spanish winemaking.
