2017 Palacios Remondo Propiedad
La cuvée Propiedad is the first wine from the Remondo winery Rioja Palacios, a family business that has been associated with wine production for four generations. One of the most notable members of this family is Álvaro Palacios, which also makes wines in Priorat (L'Ermita, Finca Dofí, Les Terrasses) and El Bierzo (Corullón, La Faraona, Petalos). Now with Remondo they have a very modern Rioja house on the map and the Propiedad is a model of innovation and renewal because this is a Rioja wine but this time not a Tempranillo but a 100% Garnacha. The grapes are selected from old vines in five plots in different "Parajes" - Valtomelloso, Valviejo, Las Mulgas and Corral de Serrano. The vines range from 30 to 90 years old, and like the rest, they are grown organically. The cultivated and crushed grapes are fermented in oak barrels with native yeasts. It underwent malolactic fermentation in barrique and then the wine has aged in oak barrels for 18 months.
The taste combines juicy fruit with earth tones and very fine tannins and balsamic vinegar, Mediterranean herbs and a delicious, almost salty aftertaste. In the nose citrus fruits, oranges, strawberries and fine herbs such as pink pepper. The taste is firm and exciting. The wine was bottled in June 2017 and then had 6 months of bottle aging. There will be no Propiedad in 2016; it is only made in the top years.
