Marqués de Cáceres Gran Reserva 2012 (Garnacha, Graciano and Tempranillo)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Deep colour with slightly brick-red rim.
  • Nose: Complex bouquet with balsamic and fine wood notes.
  • Mouth: Full on the palate with ripe plum and sweet spices and roasted notes. It maintains the freshness of a discreet vivacity that promises excellent ageing potential. Flavoursome and full-bodied with a persistent finish.

APPELLATION: Rioja

VINEYARD: Marqués de Cáceres. Mainly clay and limestone soils. Grown on small, old vines in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa.

GRAPES: Garnacha, Graciano, Tempranillo,

AGEING: 24-26 months ageing in the barrel depending on the origin of the vineyards and the proportion of new French oak barrels that are being used for their first or second wine. 4 years minimum ageing in bottle before release.

PREPARATION: 100% manual harvest. Recollection dates are rigorously decided according to the ripeness of each plot, the area they're in and the variety. Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature. Prolonged maceration with the skins, but without astringency, in order to extract more colour, aromas and tannic structure. Malolactic fermentation in new French oak barrels. Once the process is complete, the wines are transferred to barrels which are racked every 6 months.

PAIRING: Starters, Cheese, Meat, Game and Lamb

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: Serve at 17ºC

ABV: 14.5%

The Winery

Marqués de Cáceres

Marqués de Cáceres

Marqués de Cáceres has always considered that the quality of its red wines should "bring out in full the character of the grapes with a peaceful period in oak". For this reason, the soil, the grape varieties, the vinification process and ageing in oak are the protagonists forming the basis that lends distinction to the wines and, at the same time, creates their distinctive personality.
