Alvaro Palacios is one of Spain's greatest winemakers, (Decanter Man of the Year 2015), who’s best-known for putting Priorat on the map. He studied winemaking in Bordeaux, including a stint at Château Pétrus. 
However, his family are from Rioja, so in 1999 Álvaro returned to the family estate, with the goal of creating benchmark Rioja. His organically farmed vineyards grow on the high-altitude slopes of Rioja Oriental, the most easterly and warmest part of Rioja. While most of Rioja relies on Tempranillo, Alvaro believes in Garnacha as the foundation of his wine, where the grape suits the alluvial soils and Mediterranean climate. Some Tempranillo is planted, but he is phasing it out. His winemaking relies on natural practices and his vineyards are certified organic, and unfined or unfiltered.

Tasting Note: (from the producer)
The joyous Priorat Garnatxa tells of orange juice and ruby grapefruit perkiness are abundant, being the last note on the nose and the cheeriest aftertaste, leaving the wine fresh and vibrant on nose and in mouth. Its darker elements are herbed and spiced, nutty tree wood, rose hip and parsnip, and ashy-earth. It’s both prettily-fruited and mineral-edged, with a deep, pure earthiness and fine, delicate tannin. Abundantly energetic and aglow with red florals in the mouth and on the nose, as per the label.
