Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2016 is the perfect demonstration of the elegance and balance that characterise the Marqués de Murrieta winery and its surrounding vineyards located at La Finca Ygay.

Marqués de Murrieta is a reserve red wine with a balanced ageing process of one and a half years in new and semi-new American oak barrels and two years in the bottle. The result is an elegant wine that combines complexity and finesse.

One of the most well-known wines in Spain, Marqués de Murrieta is synonymous with high-quality Rioja.

This oaky and spicy red wine pairs well with grilled meat, cured ham, grilled vegetables, fish and semi-cured cheeses.

Description of Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2016

Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2016 (Garnacha, Graciano, Mazuelo and Tempranillo)

TASTING NOTES:

  • View: Cherry red.
  • Nose: Refined fruit aromas that combine perfectly with the floral, balsamic and spicy notes and the touches of oak.
  • Mouth: The palate is juicy and rich, elegant and slightly toasted. Its tannins go unnoticed thanks to their perfect integration with its fruit. Very pleasant acidity that gives it length.

APPELLATION: Rioja.

VINEYARD: Located in Finca Ygay, the Ygay vineyards occupy an area of 300 hectares surrounding the winery, in the Rioja Alta, with an altitude difference from 320 metres to 485 metres.

GRAPES: Tempranillo 93%, Mazuelo 4%, 2% and Graciano Grenache 1%.

PRODUCTION: Manual harvest from 3rd - 22nd October 2016. The bunches are destemmed and gently crushed. The varieties are fermented separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Vatting lasts 8 days, during which time the must is repeatedly pumped over to encourage contact between the must and the skins, and to encourage a slow, natural extraction of aromas and polyphenols. After fermentation, the solid parts of the grapes are pressed in vertical presses, in a gentle and slow process that favours the extraction of the colour and ripe tannins that reside in the skins.

AGEING: Aged 22 months in American oak barrels of 225 L. capacity. A minimum of 12 months in bottle before being presented to the market.

WINE PAIRING: Pairs well with grilled meat, cured ham, grilled vegetables, fish and semi-cured cheeses.

RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 15-16ºC

We recommend decanting this wine so you can enjoy this wine's aromas to the ful

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.
