Description

This is the top wine of the Marques de Murrieta estate in Rioja Spain, only made in the very best vintages and aged in bottle for 3 years prior to release.



Harvest: The tempranillo was hand harvested on October 15th, 16th and 17th, the mazuelo was hand harvested on October the 11th, 2004. The grapes are taken to the winery in small trucks in a short time.

Key aspects of vinification: Grapes are first carefully de-stemmed, squeezed and then fermented in temperature controlled,

stainless steel tanks for approximately 11-15 days, with daily remontage and pigeage processes which help its wine to develop its own personality. Both these processes ensure maximum colour and aroma, without producing excessive tannin.

Barrel ageing process: 29 months in 225 l American oak barrels (at least 10 months in new oak).

Bottle ageing: 3 years before being released to the market.

Recommended foods: All red meats, roasts and game, cured ham and cheeses.

Serving temperature: 18-19 C

Decanting: It is recommended to let it breathe forty minutes before pouring.



Grape varieties: 93% Tempranillo, 7%Mazuelo.
