Marqués de Riscal Finca Torrea Rioja

Marqués de Riscal Finca Torrea Rioja

This wine has been made from Tempranillo and Graciano grapes from the old vineyards surrounding the Torrea estate, where the Marqués de Riscal winery is currently located. The grapes are picked by hand and placed in small crates; manually selected on sorting tables and are then destemmed and crushed. Extraction is achieved through gentle pumping over and a short period of skin-maceration so as to maintain the finesse, elegance and freshness necessary to produce a wine which is pleasant and persistent on the palate. After undergoing malolactic fermentation the wine remains in French Allier oak casks for 18 months followed by a short period of ageing in bottle. Different in style to the wines that Marqués de Riscal have traditionally produced, this wine is more modern in character, with more impact of fruit. Less time in oak and less time in bottle. Cherry red with hints of dark fruit, spices. Elegant on the palate with good structure, round, long with a fresh, fruity finish.
