Winemaker Notes

A single plot wine that reflects the unique personality given by its soil, its orientation and the characteristics of the varieties and the vintage. Fermented in opened concrete tanks and finished in 500 liters French neutral barriques. It is a very complex wine, with a floral and mineral nose and an elegant long and silky finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Including the 2015 Los Acilates, I had two vintages to taste of the single-vineyard red that comes from a plot that is different than the rest of the estate. It's a north-facing, steep slope rich in limestone and was planted with well-adapted Portuguese grapes—Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira Preta—in 2003. Not as hot as 2014 but still a warm and dry vintage, 2015 saw an early harvest with very healthy grapes. The grapes fermented in concrete tanks with indigenous yeasts, followed by malolactic in barrique. The wine matured in well-seasoned small 500-liter French oak foudres for 12 months (they have shortened the oak aging of this wine). This is the finest vintage of this bottling I've tried so far; it has very good balance and a mixture of red and black berry fruit and floral undertones. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Amazing for the zone and for a vintage like 2015. I really believe in these grapes here.

Attractive depth with ripe, brambly dark-berry aromas leading to a silky palate that has plenty of supple tannins.

Alvear Bodega Palacio Quemado, Spain
Alvear Bodega Palacio Quemado  Winery Image
Bodega Palacio Quemado is owned by he Alvear family of Bodegas Alvear in D.O. Montilla-Moriles. The Alvear family founded Palacio Quemado in 1999, with the intention of exploring and championing the unique terroir and indigenous varieties of the land of Extremadura, located in the Spanish south-west. Their relationship with Envinate, a young and dynamic winemaking team that works all over Spain, has grown for many years. La Zarcita is one of two wines that Alvear produces in conjunction with Envinate at the Palacio Quemado estate, where the team of Envinate has produced their own label for quite some time. The philosophy of the wine - La Zarcita is to blend different indigenous varieties from the single Palacio Quemado estate to produce a young and fresh expression of the terroir of Extremadura. While the philosophy of the second wine - Los Acilates is to produce an honest and fresh expression of a single plot within the estate, planted with heritage indigenous varieties. The Vineyards are located near Alange, within the region of Extremadura. Several varietals including Trincadeira Prieta, Touriga Nacional, Garnacha Tintorera and Syrah are all grown on the estate, which was first planted in 1999. The vines are situated on rolling hillsides at elevations of 1105 ft. above sea level and enjoy a continental climate that is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Guyot training is applied. Exhaustive manual field work, dividing the vineyard into small sub-plots, which are managed in an individualized manner. Sustainable viticulture without the use of harmful fungicides, pesticides, herbicides, irrigation, or fertilizers.

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.
