Marq de Riscal Rosado 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Marqués de Riscal, the oldest Rioja house, has for many years been a leading and pioneering company in the wine producing sector. As far back as 1858, it became the first winery in Rioja to produce wines following the Bordeaux method, and in 1972 it was the first winery to promote the Rueda Designation of Origin, where it produced its famous Marqués de Riscal white wines. Marqués de Riscal sells its products in 80 countries and its wines enjoy the highest international distinctions as well as numerous awards and mentions in the media. Marqués de Riscal began making rosé wines in the 60s, to coincide with the cellar’s centenary, using tempranillo grapes from young vines less than 15 years’ old. This rosé wine is made using the “bleeding” technique to obtain a classic, refined style, achieving an unusual level of delicacy, freshness and smoothness for this kind of wines. This 'Rioja Rosado' displays an intense, bright raspberry colour. The nose is of high aromatic intensity, fruity with hints of blossom and raspberry. On the palate it is fresh and supple, with a finish full of delicious, lively, crispness. This wine pairs well with fish, shellfish, pasta and rice.

Plump and juicy with slightly candied red cherry fruit to go along with a touch of licorice on the plush finish.All silky, soft and easy to quaff. An impressive new wine from an impressive old winery.93% Tempranillo, 5% Graciano and 2% Manzuelo from Rioja.
