Winemaker's Notes:

The Palacios Remondo winery is located in the eastern portion of one of Spain's oldest and best known wine making regions, Rioja. The estate's flagship wine, Propiedad, is made from a blend of the indigenous Spanish grape varietals Garnacha (60%) and Tempranillo (40%) and, true to its name, it is the finest expression of the vineyards on the Palacios Remondo property, or "propiedad." In the nose it is dense and succulent, with aromas of spices, softly charred oak and sweet flowers from the Rioja region. On the palate, the wine has purity and balance with hints of ripe forest berries, blood orange rind, fresh cherries, slight creamy notes and toasted oak.

About Palacios Remondo:

Bodegas Palacios Remondo is based in Alfaro in the Rioja Baja. This old family firm has been revitalized by the arrival of Alvaro Palacios who has already made his name, starting from scratch, with his extraordinary Priorato wines. He is now intent on bringing the family Rioja company into the front line. The wines are made from their own vineyards, a rarity in the Rioja region.

Palacios is deeply committed to organic viticulture and natural winemaking practices, such as use of organic fertilizers in the stone-covered, clay soils. All wines are unfiltered and clarified only with egg whites, no exogenous yeasts or commercial compounds are added to the wines and sulfites are kept to minimum levels. Total respect for his vineyard and its surrounding environment results in wines – La Montesa, Propiedad, Plácet Valtomelloso and La Vendimia – that express the true nature of the estate’s soils.
