Winemakers Note: 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. Described by winemaker Alvaro Palacios as being ‘clear ruby-to-cherry red in color, with flecks of gold and silver’, it is a cheerful wine, with an indescribable vitality. Full of Mediterranean orchard fruit aromas including nectarines, pomegranates and oranges, the palate ‘contains vibrant and rich flavors of stone fruits, discrete spice and a vibrant chalky minerality’.
