Estrada Alta is a small vineyard of only 0.64 hectares at a height of 610 meters. It is located in the highest part of the town of Lanciego in a poor soil. It is a vineyard from the 40s, trained as bushvines, grafted in a traditional way in the vineyard itself, using mainly Tempranillo and some Graciano. The Estrada Alta is located to the west of the town with a northeast orientation, in the highest part of a slope of pure calcareous clay. We have always been fascinated by this vineyard so small for its purity, depth and balance. It was always part of Altos Lanzaga. ~Winery
96 pts Wine Advocate (Luis Gutierrez)
The single-vineyard 2019 La Estrada was produced with the field blend of grapes from a northeast-facing 0.64-hectare plot planted in the 1940s, one of the highest vineyards in the village of Lanciego at 610 meters above sea level. In this low-yielding year, the grapes were picked the 12th of October, then fermented in an open-top 3,000-liter oak vat with indigenous yeasts and matured in a combination of foudres and barriques for 14 to 16 months. This wine feels very harmonious and austere for a warm and generous vintage. It has more tannin. This is almost 100% Tempranillo, so this has earthier tannins that will evolve into a long wine with years in the bottle. Elegant rusticity. 1,972 bottles were filled in May 2021.
