Winemaker Notes

The mountainous area from which Este is grown enjoys more than 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, providing optimal ripening conditions during the day while a 20 degree drop at night grants the necessary acidity and balance. Este is represented by a pregnant mare - a symbol of fertility that has blessed the estate's fields for thousands of years. Consulting Winemaker Rafael Palacios' skillful hand working behind the scenes is abundantly clear - and the result is a stunning wine.

Blend: 47% Monastrell, 23% Tempranillo, 12% Syrah, 6% Garnach, 6% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

RP 87
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bodegas Alto Almanzora' 2009 Este is a blend of 50% Monastrell with the balance Tempranillo, Garnacha, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot aged for 6 months in American oak. Mineral, black fruit, espresso, and brier notes inform the nose of this spicy, savory, nicely proportioned effort. It is a very good value for drinking over the next 2-3 years.

Spanish red wine is known for being bold, heady, rustic and age-worthy, Spain is truly a one-of-a-kind wine-producing nation. A great majority of the country is hot, arid and drought-ridden, and since irrigation has only been recently introduced and (controversially) accepted, viticulture has sustained—and flourished—only through a great understanding of Spain’s particular conditions. Large spacing between vines allows each enough resources to survive and as a result, the country has the most acreage under vine compared to any other country, but is usually third in production.

Of the Spanish red wines, the most planted and respected grape variety is Tempranillo, the star of Spain’s Rioja and Ribera del Duero regions. Priorat specializes in bold red blends, Jumilla has gained global recognition for its single varietal Monastrell and Utiel-Requena has garnered recent attention for its reds made of Bobal.
