Tasting Notes:

I also previewed the white 2019 Plácet Valtomelloso, only a few days after I tasted a final sample of the master blend to be bottled. It's 100% Viura from 34-year-old organically farmed vines on a soft slope of the Monte Yerga in Alfaro at 50 meters above sea level. It fermented in oval oak vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in 2,000-liter oak foudres. It's extremely young and tender but already harmonious, faintly balsamic and showing the purity and precision that seem to be the signature here. This is still quite primary and reveals good freshness and harmony. It has a pleasant bitter twist in the finish. It needs some time in bottle to develop some further complexity; I think it could develop in the style of the 2015. Scheduled to be bottled around the time this report comes out, there will be some 17,000 bottles of this.

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.
