Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2018
Rioja, Spain, 75cl
The famous Marqués de Murrieta needs no introduction when it comes to world class Rioja. Marqués de Murrieta Reserva is a deep, luxurious blend of 83% Tempranillo, 9% Graciano, 6% Mazuelo, 2% Garnacha, sourced from the Ygay Estate. The grapes are destemmed and then fermented in stainless steel tanks to retail freshness and fruit purity. The wine is then aged in 225 litre American oak barrels for 16 months before bottling and release. The result is a perfect balance between a lively fruit purity and classic Rioja rusticity. The nose jumps out of the glass with brilliant, aromatics of dark cherry, balanced with hints of dried violets, red pepper, thyme and graphite and spice box. Mouth-watering on the palate, mirroring the nose with a dark, expressive fruit flavour profile and a long, succulent finish. Brilliant on its own or paired with roasted vegetables, lamb chops or charcuterie.
"A great classic, with a unique Rioja character, bursting with chewy red fruits, counterpointed by minerality. Reconciling power and finesse, pleasure and style. Warm and intense. Benchmark for wines of style, high-end brands. Leaves a vibrant memory." - 94 Pts, Decanter Magazine
