Palacios Remondo La Vendimia Rioja 2016

Rioja, SpainAlvaro Palacio can do anything, as illustrated by this delicious drop of garnacha and tempranillo from his home estate in Rioja Baja. There is a richness and roundness of texture that enthralls but without overwhelming the drinker. Juicy, earthy, red-fruited and spiked with mulberries and floral cherry notes that just keep pulling you back to the glass. So much so, before you know it the bottle is gone. La Vendimia, 'the harvest,' is a delicious joven, a young Rioja, made for simple foods. The fruit sits at some 500m and the estate-owned 10-to 40-year-old vines have been grown organically since 2003. Drink now with lamb, veal or even fish, or hold through 2019.Tasted: 12 January 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
