Characteristics of Marqués de Riscal Reserva

Marqués de Riscal Reservais a red wine produced by the winery Marqués de Riscal, in Elciego (Álava), D.O.Ca. Rioja.

The winery Marqués de Riscal has over 150 years of history. It is a reference of the Spanish wine scene, and Marqués de Riscal is considered as one of the first modern Rioja companies that began to produce quality wines.
Currently, Marqués del Riscal has 1,500 hectares of vineyards, 600 of which are owned. Here, they cultivate the varieties Tempranillo, Graciano, Mazuelo and Cabernet Sauvignon.

The success of Marqués de Riscal is recognised worldwide, since the winery exports 60% of its total production to more than 100 countries.

Marqués de Riscal Reserva is a red wine made with Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo from vineyards that are over 40 years old, located on clayey-calcareous soils.

After the harvest, the grapes ferment at a controlled temperature with a maceration of 12 days. Once the harvest has finished, the wine goes through a minimum ageing of 2 years in American oak barrels. It is left to stand in the bottle for a minimum of one year before it is launched on to the market.

Marqués de Riscal Reserva is an expressive, structured and elegant wine. On the nose, the notes of its ageing, liquorice, black pepper, and leather, stand out on a background of ripe red fruit. In the mouth, it is silky and easy to drink, with a long and balsamic finish. The classic wine of Rioja.

Tasting notes Marqués de Riscal 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.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
Marques de Riscal Reserva 2014 is one of the most famous wines in Rioja. This red wine has a concentrated profile thanks to the aromas of its ageing, but it also has a light colour and a medium-bodied mouth. A wine for lovers of the Rioja Reserva wines.
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.

Lingering finish with some hints of toasted oak. Tasty, with hints of spicy and a soft bitterness. It has a pleasant mid palate that turns it into an easy drinking, fresh and elegant wine.

    25/06/20 Marqués de Riscal Reserva 2015 Last time I travelled to Elciego to collect (part of holiday), this time due to Covid-19 could not travel. A lot cheaper, more efficient, but not so much fun to obtain one of my favourite wines.

    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.
