Characteristics of Marqués de Riscal Organic Blanco

Marqués de Riscal Organic Blanco is a white wine produced by the winery Herederos del Marqués de Riscal in the municipality of Rueda, under denomination V.T. Castilla y León.

Herederos del Marqués de Riscal is the winery of the Marqués de Riscal group, which is in charge of producing white wines in the area of Rueda and Castilla y León.

In the 1970s, Marqués de Riscal decides to make its first white wine, choosing the area of Rueda for its quality. They currently have 230 hectares of their own vineyards, with the Verdejo and Sauvignon Blanc varieties. They also manage 250 more hectares in La Seca, Rueda, Serrada and Rodilana, where they produce 5 white wines in the D.O. Rueda and V.T. Castilla y León.

Marqués de Riscal Organic Blanco is a wine made with Verdejo from their own vineyards that are over 25 years old, located in Rueda. These vineyards have been cultivated organically since 2010.

Once the grapes are harvested, they ferment with local yeasts in stainless steel deposits. After the fermentation, the wine is left to stand for a few months before it is launched on to the market.

Marqués de Riscal Organic Blanco is a light, fresh and aromatic wine. On the nose, the perfect fusion of the citrus notes with the typical aromas of the variety stand out. In the mouth, it is easy to drink, fresh and with a good structure.

Tasting notes Marqués de Riscal Organic Blanco

The 2017 vintage has been rated excellent by the regulatory council. A year marked by drought and high temperatures that brought the harvest date forward. Autumn began with temperatures somewhat higher than normal but with a normal rainfall. It was not until late November when temperatures dropped. The beginning of the year arrived with low temperatures and scarce rainfall. Suddenly, temperatures began to rise and accelerated the growth and phenolic development of the vines. At the end of April, there was an intense frost, a severe climatic accident that reduced the harvest by 20%. Once again, May registered very high temperatures that sped up the flowering and consequently brought the harvest date forward, becoming the earliest to date. A vintage where all the aromatic components of the grape have been extracted and the acidity has been preserved, essential to give freshness to the wine.
The 2016 vintage, rated as very good, began with an autumn and winter with high temperatures for these seasons that predicted an acceleration of the vines’ growth cycle. At the beginning of the spring, temperatures fell and rainfall returned to normal figures. This fact was translated in an adjustment as far as budding and flowering dates. At the beginning of June, the heat arrived and stayed all summer until the beginning of the harvest. In general terms, it was a rainy and somewhat warm year. The wines of this vintage are characterised for being aromatic and with a good acidity. Where wines in their youth will preserve their aromatic and fresh features.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rueda

Winery Marqués de Riscal

When we talking about the Rueda wines, we are often referring to their white wines. The white wines produced in this region are often made with the Verdejo variety, the main variety of Rueda, planted along the Douro River and its tributaries. Rueda white wines often offer lots of floral notes, scrubland low, delicate aromas and a great acidity given by strong temperature differences between day and night. Apart from white wine, Rueda also produces red wine, often made with the Tempranillo variety.

Talking about Marqués de Riscal means talking about prestige, innovation, non-conformism and quality, values that have been shown since 1858, when this winery was founded.
We are in front of the oldest wineries within the D.O. Rioja, essential in the birth of the D.O. Rueda and with no doubt, one of the most daring and pioneering wineries due to its way of understanding the wine industry.
