Palacios Remondo La Vendimia 2010 from the “rock star” of Rioja!

Palacios Remondo La Vendimia 2010, with its eye-catching, contemporary label, is a superb example of mediujmk bodied new wave reds coming out of Rioja- medium bodied wine with its haunting fragrance made from Tempranillo and Garnacha. Alvaro Palacios is one of the “rock stars” of modern Spanish wine making best known for his work in revitalising the region of Priorat and his ultra-pricey “Grand Cru”, L’Ermita. This though is from his family property in Rioja, where he has worked his magic in reinvigorating the old vineyards and bringing the winemaking up to the state of the art.
