Palacios Remondo Tempranillo Blend Rioja la Montesa Crianza 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

For those who think that Viura is inherently uninspiring, this wine should make<br/>them think again. Alvaro Palacios has built an enviable reputation from<br/>championing lesser-known regions and unfashionable varieties. This white Rioja,<br/>although of course not from a lesser-known region, is a fine testament to the<br/>expressive potential of the Viura variety, which Alvaro describes, perhaps a<br/>little extravagently, as 'the Chardonnay of the South'. Light straw<br/>colouring, then a nose of pear, white pepper and vanillin. The palate is<br/>fascinating, with fruit, butter, nuts and vanillin all evidenced. Richly<br/>textured and long. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

Palacios focused his efforts on the Crianza, La Montesa, a Garnacha-based blend from south-facing vineyards grown on the lower slopes of the Yerga mountain range, in pebble and clay soils. In the best vintages, Palacios also makes a top wine, Propiedad, a departure from his father’s use of traditional designations Reserva and Gran Reserva. The estate’s only white wine, Plácet, is made in small quantities from 100% barrel-fermented Viura, planted on the estate in 1989. The final wine, La Vendimia, with its eye-catching, contemporary label, is a fresh, fruit-driven value wine made from Tempranillo and  Garnacha. Palacios is committed to honoring his father’s memory by taking the estate’s quality to new heights, as evidenced by the suberb recent vintages.  Under his inspired leadership, Palacios Remondo is now a rising star of Rioja. http://www.foliowine.com/winery_pages/25_palacios_remondo/palacios_remondo.html Read less

Klares, strahlendes mittleres Gelb mit leicht grünlichen Reflexen.Komplexes und intensives Bukett, dass geprägt ist von Zitrusfrüchten, grünem Apfel, Annanas und fein unterlegter Honig- und Vanillenote. Am Gaumen schöne Balance zwischen Frucht und Säure. Harmonisch und mit  cremiger Textur überzeugt uns dieser weisse Rioja mit einem langen Finale.
