The name of this wine. Marques de Caceres was lent by D. Vicente Noguera y Espinosa de los Monteros. Today, he has been succeeded by his son D. Juan Noguera Merle, a worthy representative of the Marquisate which was granted in the XVIII century to his ancestor Juan Ambrosio Garcia de Caceres y Montemayor, a Captain of the Royal Armada for war merits.
Editorial Reviews for Marques de Caceres Rioja Rosado
Very fruity on the nose with notes of watermelon, strawberry and raspberry fruit, framed with a hint of cream. Soft and a bit chewy in the mouth, this is a fairly substantial rosé with chewy red fruits that lean toward the wild/black cherry end of the spectrum, flecked with spice and leathery nuances on the back end and through the modest, zesty finish. Plenty of acidity here and a nice hint of tannin helps cleanse the palate. 86pts
Crisp herbal white wine. Works well with fish.
This is a 2011 Viura from Rioja, Spain. Light yellow straw in color. Fruit hints of pear and grapefruit with a hint of minerality. A mid-finish on the palette and crisp acidity. The time for this wine is now until 2018. Best served chilled to 45 degrees, and served with a seafood paella.
Bright, dark ruby colour. Attractive, intense bouquet of raspberries and cherries with vanilla notes and a touch of spice. Nice, refreshingly ripe fruit in the mouth with delicious tannins that confer good body and complexity. Rich and pleasant on tasting, its smooth texture charms the palate with long-lasting flavours. An elegant wine. -The Winery

Complex bouquet disclosing fresh fruit (grapefruit and pears) with a slight depth of almonds. In the mouth, mineral notes wrapped in silky tannins highlight this wine's delicious flavours. Very well balanced on tasting with just a touch of oak to finish with a refreshing vivacity. A unique and elegant white wine.
Light gold. Fresh pear and orange on the nose, with quinine and floral nuances and a hint of white pepper. Juicy and a touch warm on the palate, which offers ripe citrus fruit and bitter pear skin flavors. Finishes dry and crisp, with good energy and lingering spiciness.
This Rioja-based winery’s first effort with Albariño is perfectly good, with aromas of peach and fleshy melon. The palate is tangy and linear in feel, with citrus and green fruit flavors. Turns sharp and citric on the finish.
This aromatic white offers an alluring mix of orange blossom, wild herb and seaside notes, with a silky texture and tangy acidity for grip. Ethereal yet racy, this is juicy and fresh. Drink now.
This is viura fermented in stainless steel, retaining a fresh sting of acidity tightening around flavors of grilled pineapple. The wine has a touch of bitterness that will play well off any roast fish.
Cheers to one of Riojaandrsquo;s most basic yet consistent white wines. Minerally and crystalline on the nose, with dusty apple, melon and stony aromas, this Viura is fresh, dry and average in weight. It tastes of papaya and apple, finishing dry and clean.
Crisp and lively, this light-bodied rosé offers floral, herbal and citrus flavors, with modest berry and cherry notes. A light bitterness keeps the wine focused and refreshing. Drink now.
