Characteristics of Marqués de Murrieta Dalmau Reserva

Dalmau Reserva is a red wine from the D.O. La Rioja produced by the Marqués de Murrietawinery. This wine is a blend of Tempranillo (79%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Graciano (6%).
The grapes used by Dalmau Reserva come from a hundred-year-old vineyard located inFinca Ygay, more specifically in the Canajas Plot.
This is located 465 meters above sea level and has a clay-calcareous soil with a great deal of pebbles.
When the Dalmau Reservaberries have acquired their characteristic color, a thinning —elimination of the surplus grapes— of the bunches is carried out. Production is limited, never exceeding a kilo per plant, and only the highly concentrated small berry bunches are selected.
In the cellar, the different varieties ferment separately at a controlled temperature for eleven days. While he Tempranillo ferment in small stainless steel tanks, the Graciano and the Cabernet Sauvignon do so in small oak barrels.
Before the aging, over-pumping processes are performed to promote the activity of the yeast, and délestage, in order to oxygenate the wine and increase the yeast.
Lastly, Dalmau Reservais aged for 19 months in French oak barrels from Allier, and is refined for another twelve months in the bottle.
Marqués de Murrieta is a historic Rioja winery with more than 150 years of history. The company started out in 1852 as a result of wine exports, and today remains one of the benchmark names on the wine scene.

Tasting notes Marqués de Murrieta Dalmau Reserva

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.
A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight Intense, clean and bright dark cherry red colour. Nose Clean nasal aromas with a high intensity in which the powerful load of fruity notes are dominant. They are released along with mineral notes, creamy toasted aromas, roasted hints, coffee, spices, cocoa and balsamic notes. Taste Very good attack, with an elegant, fleshy and taste mid palate. Its acidity and its tannins are very well balanced. Long and very persistent finish, with light bitter hints, reminiscent of fruity, smoky and toasted sensations.
