Marquã©s de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Světlé, jemné bílé víno s intenzivně aromatickým buketem. Kvašení více než 20 - 30 dní zajišťuje, že si víno zachová ovocné aroma a chuť hroznů. Kyselost je dobře vyvážená. Alkohol: 13,5 %

Pale yellow with a slight greenish hue, this light bodied wine smells like asian pear, honeydew, and clover honey. Tastes of the same with some raw pineapple/sweet ruby grapefruit notes. Light bodied with lots of mouth watering acid - a very bright and crisp wine. Medium to long in length. I like this one, but don't love it because I would like to taste more complexity in addition to the acid.

Complex aromas with abundant lime, grapefruit, passion fruit and melon fruit, green grass and an underlying minerality that adds personality.At Marques de Riscal, balancing respect for the past with the demands of the present and an eye for the future is never an easy task - but it helps if your family has been engaged in it for more than 150 years.There s continuity at Riscal, with constant family ownership, and the current Marques, Paco Hurtado, is in charge of operations, while his son Luis is winemaker.Grapes: 100% Sauvignon BlancRegion: Spain / RuedaMaker: Luis HurtadoNotes: Pale yellow in colour with hints of green.

Strohfarben mit grünlichem Schimmer, frisch, fruchtig, reife weisse Früchte, geschmackvoll, leicht, mit feinem Nachklang von Kräutern und Früchten (Äpfel). Im Abgang angenehm herb, verbunden mit der leichten Süsse des Alkohols.

Expansive fruity aroma, pale yellow colour with subtle greenish highlights and on the palate, initial sensation of smooth acidity which turns to caramel under the tongue.

Classic verdejo aromas with medium intensity and hints of fennel, herbs, white blossom, pear and peach.At Marques de Riscal, balancing respect for the past with the demands of the present and an eye for the future is never an easy task - but it helps if your family has been engaged in it for more than 150 years.There s continuity at Riscal, with constant family ownership, and the current Marques, Paco Hurtado, is in charge of operations, while his son Luis is winemaker.Grapes: 100% VerdejoRegion: Spain / Rueda / Finca MonticoMaker: Luis HurtadoNotes: Greenish-yellow colour. The nose has a marked Verdejo varietal aroma with medium intensity and hints of fennel, herbs, white blossom, pear and peach. It has a fresh, unctuous, very smooth mouth-feel, with a long, round finish. Its good acidity together with a period of ageing on its finest lees helps to keep its fresh taste longer and preserves all its aromatic complexity. This wine does not aim to impress with a powerful nose, but rather reveals a more elegant, complex varietal character.Serve: At 8-10c with fish, shellfish, white meat, ham, pasta, chicken and cold cuts.ABV: 13.5%
