Palacios Remondo, situated in Alfaro within Rioja Oriental, the eastern and warmest sector of the Rioja appellation, is a winery owned by the Palacios Remondo family. The soil in this area is characterized by its silt and alluvial composition, and the climate, semi-arid and Mediterranean, is ideal for cultivating Garnacha. This grape variety is now making a resurgence in prominence within the region, reclaiming attention that had been dominated by the more widely favored Tempranillo for decades.

The grapes come exclusively from a single vineyard – the Paraje del Quiñón de Valmira plot from which it gets name. The plot has vineyards of around 30 years old, and is located on a gently sloping hillside with chalky soil.

The grapes are handpicked at the ideal ripeness. Once at the winery, they undergo destemming and gentle crushing, initiating alcoholic fermentation in wooden vats with their natural yeasts. The resultant wine undergoes spontaneous malolactic fermentation in barrels and ages in large French wooden casks and smaller barrels for approximately 18 months.

The wine is boasting with aromas of mature cherries, dried strawberries, blueberries, dried herbs, and flowers. Medium-bodied, polished and refined, with a chalky and velvety tannin structure. On the palate it is juicy and fleshy, highlighting delightful fruit characteristics. The finish lingers with impressions of crushed stones and a subtle spicy edge.

Food pairing suggestion: Rabbit au vin.
