Red Wine Palacio Quemado Los Acilates 2016
Availability: In stock
An interesting Spanish red wine from the southern Spanish region of Extremadura, Palacio Quemado Los Acilates is produced by the Palacio Quemado winery.
This single estate wine belonging to the DO Ribera del Guadiana is a blend of Tempranillo and Syrah, coming from vines planted on steep slopes with red clay soils and oriented to the north. Climate is continental with an Atlantic influence.
The grapes were harvested by hand and separately vinified. The resulting red wine from Extremadura was then aged for 12 months in 500-litre oak vats.
After that, Palacio Quemado Los Acilates 2016, produced by the Alvear Company, was aged for a further 12 months in the cellar prior to its release.
The wine Palacio Quemado Los Acilates has an intense, bright cherry colour with some garnet tinges.
This Crianza red wine has a remarkable aromatic intensity. Notes of smoke, toast, red and black fruit and underbush. Enticing notions of balsam and subtle mineral undertones. This blend of Tempranillo and Syrah is elegant and well-balanced.
Savoury, meaty and juicy, this wine of the Palacio Quemado winery has a warm core, a velvety body, ripe tannins, and a crisp, tense acidity that refreshes the palate. Loads of red fruit, underpinned by spices, toast and some earthy remembrances. This wine from Ribera del Guadiana has a medium, fruity finish.
