Characteristics of Quiñón de Valmira

Quñón de Valmira is the new great wine from Álvaro Palacios in La Rioja. The wine comes from the Paraje de Valmira plot in the Monte Yerga, at an altitude of 615 metres. He has worked for the last 10 years trying to get the maximum potential at 3 hectares of vineyards, grafting clones of old Grenache in the area and working the vineyards in a traditional way.

As Álvaro Palacios has said, “If there is any great wine in the Rioja Baja it has to be here”, this has been the constantly repeated phrase whenever you approach a vineyard with him. A visionary like no other, this new great wine by Álvaro will not leave you indifferent, a pure Grenache, which reflects perfectly the land of the Rioja Baja. A wine in its first year that is sure to debut among the great wines of Spain.

Tasting notes Quiñón de Valmira

The more Mediterranean Rioja was influenced by heat and low precipitation. Following a normal winter, spring began with a rise in temperatures, which caused early budding. Luckily, this area was spared from the heavy frost that attacked many vineyards in the north of the peninsula. Consistent high temperatures resulted in early flowering and one of the earliest vintages in 20 years. According to Álvaro Palacios, the result was as follows: “I’m simply amazed by the robustness of the wine; it’s tasty and clean with exquisite and harmonious smoothness. It is the expression of the power of light in this unprecedented year of sunshine.”
High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

The new and latest stage of Álvaro Palacios as the lead of the family-run winery. As an outspoken advocate of the concept of cru wines, he has turned the land and the vineyard into the identity mark of the wines of Palacios Remondo and into the business success of the winery. Since he joined the family winery in 2000 along with his sister Chelo, and with a renewed significance of the current vineyard they own, the style of the wines of Palacios Remondo has been noticeably transformed in a few years. Mainly with the objective of giving greater importance to the local variety, the Red Grenache.
