Wine Petalos del Bierzo DO, 2008
Rich Petalos 2008 has well balanced acidity, soft texture with a harmoniously integrated tannins and a complex, multi-layered taste, reveals juicy tones of ripe plums, cherries, wild berries and hints of fresh spices. Long aftertaste demonstrates the astonishing depth.
Seductive bouquet wraps lavender, incense, spice, black cherry and blueberry.
Petalos is perfect as an aperitif, but it will make the perfect pair of medallions of veal, lamb in herbs, steak, foie gras and other dishes of red meat, game and poultry. As snacks would be the best ham and cheese durum.
Initially, the company's founder, Alvaro Palacios was selling barriques of French oak, but he always dreamed of himself to create great wines that reflect the character to maximize his native Spain. In the late 1980s he was able to realize his dream into reality and became abandoned vineyards near GALLARDO. This was the first step on the road to success. Later Alvaro together with his nephew Ricardo Pérez (oenologist by training) greatly expanded ownership by 100 small vineyards in the town of Bierzo. It is here that grow autochthonous grape variety Mencia, perfectly reflecting the characteristics of the terroir and gives the wine unique flavors and aromas. The first vintages created from Mensah showed that wine and Ricardo Alvarez expects starry future, as evidenced by today are high marks from respected wine critics such as Robert Parker and Stephen Tanzer.
All the wines of Desendientes H. de Palacios (which translates as "Heirs of Jose Palacios") are produced using biodynamic methods, aged in oak and are not filtered, so you can be assured of their highest quality and environmental friendliness.
Try excellent Petalos 2008, and you will be charmed by its soft, multi-layered flavor, which harmoniously united seductive tones of wild berries, ripe fruit and spices.
