Rioja Palacios Remondo La Montesa 2016

The wine

This cuvée from well-known winemaker Alvaro Palacios (Ermita) is a blend of Grenache, Tempranillo, Mazuelo and Graciano from the Montesa vineyard. The vines here have been planted on the slopes of Monte Yerga in the east of the appellation which is known for the quality of its clay and limestone soil. The grapes are fermented, macerated and punched-down in oak vats for one month. The wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation and 14 months of barrel-ageing in new French wood. The result is an intense wine, dominated by red fruit (cherry) and spice with plump tannins and a fresh and lingering finish.
