Wine Note

Palacio Quemado 'La Zarcita'

This is from the Alvear Winery famed for their Montilla wines. Palacio Quemado is their winery in Extremadura.A delicious, exuberantly fruity wine, La Zarcita is a blend of Trincadeira Preta, Touriga Nacional and Garnacha Tintorera from vines planted in 2003 on clay and limestone soils. It fermented in stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts followed by 8 moths aging partly in French oak and concrete tanks . The oak is well integrated and neatly folded into the fruit, with notes of ripe fruit in the foreground, black rather than red. Great barbecue wine, its quite a big wine, but served cellar cool it becomes juicy, fresh and easy drinking.
