Discover More About Our Products

Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2015 is a dry red wine from Rioja, Spain, which owes its elegance and harmony to Tempranillo grapes and its freshness and liveliness to the small proportions of Mazuelo, Graciano and Granache used in its production.

This classic Cuvée Rioja has a beautiful, bright cherry-red colour, which combines well with the fruity bouquet of black cherries and plums, the light to roasted aromas and the elegant note of oak, as tradition demands. Its juiciness, elegance and harmony on the palate, together with the fine acidity and the fine tannins, embody the winery's art of producing a unique wine from a diverse range of grapes. All these characteristics have made it possible for this wine to be included in the 100 best wines of 2019 according to the Wine Spectator.

Bodegas Marqués de Murrieta was founded in 1878 in Rioja by Luciano Francisco Ramón de Murrieta, who acquired vineyards in Ygay and from the beginning led his wines to success with revolutionary innovations. Acquired in 1983 by Vincente Cebrián Sagarriga, Count of Creixell, today his sons Vincente and Christina Dalmau Cebrián-Sagarriga manage what is recognised as one of Spain's leading wineries.

Finca de Ygay, with its 300 hectares of vineyards, is located in the southern part of the Rioja wine region.

4/5

Spicy aromas lead to intense cherry, red berries, ripe plum, licorice, chopped nuts and balsamic. On the palate the wine is silky and balanced with rounded tannins and fresh acidity. The finish is long and mineral with a hint of sweet spice.

- Intense cherry red in colour with aromas of red berries, ripe plum, licorice, chopped nuts and balsamic. On the palate the wine is silky and balanced with rounded tannins and fresh acidity. The finish is long and mineral with a hint of sweet spice.
- The Spanish love their lamb, beef and - obviously - jamón! This is the perfect partner.
- 89% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo, 4% Graciano and 2% Garnacha.

Well rounded, excellent wine, with just about perfect aftertaste. Marqués de Murrieta wines are simply beautiful for the money.
