Marques de Riscal Reserva 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. In the D.O Rueda area, Marqués de Riscal has 225 hectares of vineyard in which it grows, among other varieties, the indigenous Verdejo vine. A versatile grape with lots of character and personality, it is well suited to the area’s extreme conditions, making it possible to obtain fresh white or cask-fermented white wines. This French Sauvignon Blanc variety, which Marqués de Riscal uses for this varietal wine, originates from the Loire Valley region. It was introduced in Rueda by Marqués de Riscal in 1974 and today the bodega grows 70 hectares in its estate vineyards. Nowadays it is one of the officially permitted varieties of the Denominación de Origen Rueda, thanks to its ability to adapt to the soil and produce white wines with great aromatic intensity, good balance of acidity and hints of minerals. This 'Sauvignon Rueda' shows a pale yellow in colour with hints of green. It has a highly intense, fruity nose, with ripe berries, citrus fruit, pineapple and grapefruit. On the palate it has an underlying mineral presence and a fresh and aromatic sensation in the long, lingering finish. This wine is the perfect match for all kinds of shellfish and pasta. Ideal as an aperitif.

Wonderful wine for the price, especially from this well known Spanish establishment. More fruit forward that I was expecting. Also jammy with red fruits and a hint of bitter spice. Little bit of heat to it that slowly calms as it breaths. Not one to hold on to, Drink now!

Sauvignon 2009 - Marqués de Riscal: Sauvignon 2009 - Weißwein von Marqués de RiscalBei diesem Wein aus dem Hause Marqués de Riscal handelt es sich um einen feinen und dabei rassigen Sauvignon Blanc. Er begeistert mit seiner reinen Frucht, ist wohl ausbalanciert und vollmundig.Anfang der 70er Jahre entschloss sich die Bodega Marqués de Riscal ? die weltbekannte und traditionsreichste Kellerei der Rioja -  zum Bau einer topmodernen Weißweinkellerei in Rueda, da in dieser alten Weinbauregion mit ihren trockenen, warmen Sommern  und kalten Wintern ideale Klima- und Bodenbedingungen für die Herstellung moderner,frischer, rassiger und fruchtiger Weißweine herrschen. Die Bodega pflanzte in Rueda als erstes Weingut Sauvignon Blanc-Reben und erzeugte daraus Weine, die weithin für Aufsehen sorgten und höchstes Lob erhielten.Der Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon ist ein Wein für festliche Anlässe und Genießer. Er ist ideal als Aperitif und als Begleiter zu Vorspeisen, Gerichten mit hellem Fleisch und Fisch.Weingut: Marqués de RiscalLand: SpanienRegion: Kastilien-León - RuedaRebsorte: 100% Sauvignon BlancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 6,25 g/lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur:  8-10 °C Weißwein > Spanien > Kastilien-León

Rich and smooth, this full-bodied white offers almond, pear and creamy flavors, with enough acidity for balance. Bigger in body than in flavor, but appealing and well-priced. Drink now through 2004.

This vineyard bottling is very vintage driven. The cool 2009 harvest has made it ripe and tart in cherry pie flavors, but also rather tannic. It's aloof, revealing little of its soul, beyond the primary fruit and oak. Needs time in the cellar. Could ... Wine Enthusiast.

This soft, smooth white shows pear, vanilla and honey flavors, balanced nicely between light sweetness and gentle acidity. Distinctive. Drink now.

A hint of clover honey leads to the tart citrus flavors of this summer time quaffer. Serve it at a picnic in the park.
