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.
Ravishing Rioja is a blend of 50% Garnacha.50% Tempranillo. 2012 was a very good vintage in La Rioja (drought year..driest in 60years!). Alvaro calls it a “year of character ” and produced a wine “..concentrated and vigorous. but with finesse.. elegance .. ” It ‘s mid weight. utterly complete. ravishingly spiced and with great harmony of tannin. acid and perfume. Alvaro ™s precise yet barely tutored wines always speak gently but unfailingly of the earth in which they grow. and this hallmark ™s in spades here. Red black fruits in red dirt bespeak this. the jewel vineyard of Rioja Baja. Awesome. softly gloving fruit tannin is the heart from which ever so pleasant fruit radiates a warm glow. Gentle. earthily fruited. classy.more ish. delicious. RRP $33
