Legacy project from Alvaro - he has been working on this wine for years. It straddles the divide between old school and new wave in flavour profile and brightness in that it's not reliant on oak, but it is so pure and classy. STSWine

Named after a hillside vineyard located on the northeastern slope of the Yerga mountain in eastern Rioja, La Montesa is a blend of the indigenous grape varieties that grow on the Palacios Remondo estate. Located at an altitude of 1,800 feet, Palacios Remondo’s vineyards are grown at some of the highest points in Rioja. The 30-year-old head-trained vines are hand-harvested, grown organically, and very narrowly spaced (3,000 plants per hectare). Soil is comprised of sediments that stem from the Quaternary Era, consisting of clay and a stony-calcareous subsoil, covered in stones, with excellent drainage. Very low in organic material and with a moderated basic pH, the soil is perfect for growing high quality fruit. By dry-farming and dropping close to 40% of their fruit, Palacios Remondo ensures only the highest quality fruit is picked during harvest. 93 POINTS, ROBERT PARKER
