Interesting Facts

Elegant "Petalos" in 2011 - one of the finest wines from Alvaro Palacios category DO (Denominacion de Origen), which is made ​​from grapes Mencia harvested from old vines on the slopes of a hill and around the commune GALLARDO, on the western border appellasona Bierzo. The soils here - mostly shale. Through the use of methods of biodynamic vineyards under cultivation, wine is environmentally friendly and features of vinification and aging in small French oak barrels confer its elegant, multi-layered flavor. After alcoholic fermentation harvest was malolactic fermentation in oak barrels and neutral vessels. Then the wine is aged for several months in new French barriques and another 6-10 months 1-2 year olds barrels. Filtration and clarification before bottling is not carried out.

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 Perez - oenologist by training, has significantly 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 Tenzer.

All the wines of Descendientes de Jose Palacios (which translates as "Heirs Jose Palacios") are produced using biodynamic methods, aged in oak casks and not filtered, which means that you can be assured of their highest quality and environmental friendliness.
