Tasting Notes:

The one white produced here, the 2018 Plácet Valtomelloso comes from a cool and wet vintage that has produced fresh wines with an Atlantic profile even in this Mediterranean part of Rioja. It's Viura from 33-year-old vines fermented in oval oak casks where the wine matured for some seven months. I tasted the wine quite early, and it felt quite primary. It's very intense and has notable acidity, with a remarkable pH of 3.29 after malolactic. 2018 was a year of mildew, but they controlled it even though they are organic in the vineyard. It's really fresh, elegant and balanced, and it looks like one of the finest if not the finest vintage of Plácet. 17,600 bottles produced. It will be bottled in the summer of 2019.

Tasting Notes:

A bright and dense white with lots of sliced-mango and pineapple character. Vibrant and energetic acidity lifts the wine. Tangy and vivid at the finish. Drink now.

description Producer information Professional reviews

This is a winery that from Alfaro, in the eastern Mediterranean Rioja, provides one of the last foothills of the Iberian, the rugged and saw fresh Yerga. In his hillside colluvium formed by sedimentation of the peaks, it extends La Montesa, Grenache vineyard par excellence. Rootedness and winemaking tradition on its soil clay and calcium carbonate, which also emerge even boulders of volcanic origin.
