Marques de Murrieta Rioja Gran Reserva 2015 75cl
Marques de Murrieta Rioja Gran Reserva 2015 is a special wine from this notable Rioja estate, and is only made when the vintage conditions permit. Using a selection of top quality grapes from their Ygay estate, they then craft a powerful wine that can withstand the long ageing required of a Gran Reserva. This vintage spent 27 months in American oak barrels, and spent 3 years in bottle before being released. It is a wine that could last many more years in good storage conditions.
Marques de Murrieta is an outstanding producer of Rioja, who deftly treads the line between the classic and modern styles of this region. Long ageing in American oak is normal practice here, as is traditional. However, their wines are made to be fresher, with more fruit than past versions of traditional Rioja wines.Read more...
