Crafted by the esteemed Bodegas Álvaro Palacios Quiñon de Valmira stands as a testament to the winery’s indomitable spirit in capturing the quintessence of Rioja Baja. With each vintage unfurling a narrative of the land, the 2018 vintage presents delicate whispers of orange peel and the tender blossoms of spring, while the 2019 resonates deeper with the sun-drenched allure of strawberries and raspberries, underscored by the wild elegance of thyme and rosemary, and the profundity of moss and graphite, evocative of a walk through Burgundian glades. On the palate, one encounters an aerial dance between fruit and mineral, culminating in a fine, robust expression that maintains an aerial grace, grounded with a flourish of a saline caress born of limestone’s embrace.
