Palacios Remondo Rioja Crianza 'La Montesa'

"Always a sure value, the 2015 La Montesa, has been increasing the amount of Garnacha in its blend, and here it reached 92% with the remaining 8% being Tempranillo. La Montesa is the name of a large estate where different lieux-dits, or "parajes" in Spanish, contribute to the blend of Valtomelloso, Valfrio and Valviejo. The grapes were hand-picked throughout October, then destemmed, crushed and fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats, with remontage, where it also underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine matured in barrel for 12 months before being bottled. The tannins are ultrafine, and the flavours are intense and deep, with some spicy undertones and a very tasty finish. Amazingly good. " 92+ points Luis Gutierrez
