Marqués de Cáceres White Blend Rioja Blanco 2011
Luminous, pale straw colour with metallic highlights. Lively bouquet combining pears and mineral notes with a discreet depth of grapefruit. Well-integrated fruit flavours awaken the palate with their refreshing vivacity and persist in the mouth to give good length. Serving Suggestions: An ideal wine to relax with as a delicious aperitif or to accompany seafood, grilled fish and shellfish, rice and pasta dishes, etc. Also complements sushi and sashimi dishes.
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.
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.
External Reviews for Marqués de Cáceres White Blend Rioja Blanco
Bright straw. Fresh citrus and orchard fruits on the nose and in the mouth. Clean and racy but modestly concentrated, finishing with firm bite and lingering tangy fruit.
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.
Cheers to one of Riojarsquo;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 firm, this white offers modest green apple, herb and citrus flavors, but it's more about a bracing breeze of acidity. 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.
