Bodegas Lacus is situated in Aldeanueva de Ebro in the Rioja Baja and is owned by Luis Arnedo. He owns 15 hectares across 7 parcels including a number of old vine parcels, planted by his grandfather. Luis works closely with his consultant and fellow winemaker, Frenchman Olivier Rivère, to produce some of the most exciting and innovative wines from Rioja Baja. Total production is just 20,000 bottles across the four wines of his Inedito (unpublished) range. All the wines have wonderful purity and freshness which defy the heat and default style of the region.
Tasting Notes: Inédito Blanco Garnacha Blanca (there are only a few examples in Rioja, all of them relatively new) is made with 50 year-old vines and aged for seven months in barrel. The result is a white Rioja with a traditional old oak bouquet but no oxidation, and a wonderfully zippy palate that is full of energy supported by a tremendous mineral finish.
