The wine Palacios Remondo La Montesa is made mostly from Grenache, complemented with some Tempranillo, both coming from low-yielding vines. Interestingly, Bodegas Palacios Remondo owns about 100 hectares of vineyards spread out across some of the best terroirs in La Rioja.
The soils have extremely low levels of organic matter and are covered of pebble stones of alluvial origin, a composition which is quite similar to that of the famed Châteauneuf-du-Pape soils.
Harvested at dusk, the grapes were meticulously selected, destemmed and cold-soaked to foster the extraction of colour and aromas. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. Then Palacios Remondo La Montesa 2018 was transferred into 1st, 2nd and 3rd 225-litre French (85%) and American (15%) oak barrels and aged for a period of 12 months.
This is the second certified organic vintage of La Montesa from La Rioja.
Decant 30 minutes before you drink it.
The red wine Palacios Remondo La Montsesa has a bright, intense, medium-high ruby-coloured robe with a garnet rim.
This blend of Grenache and Tempranillo has an exotic, intense aromatic profile. Notes of ripe cherries, strawberries, pomegranates, along with hints of citrus and delicate fragrances of flowers. There is also a rich bouquet of Eastern spices.
This wine of bodega Palacios Remondo enters the palate smoothly. Lifted and moreish, with great freshness, ripe tannins and plenty of nuance. Long, smoky finish with remembrances of spices and herbs.
