Characteristics of Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc

Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine from Rueda produced by the Marqués de Riscal winery. This wine is a French varietal Sauvignon Blanc.

The grapes come from vineyards, whose average age is over 25, in part of the 70 acres owned by the winery.

After the harvest, Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc goes through a period of cold maceration. Subsequently, the juice is extracted and clarified and a slow fermentation with the intention of preserving the aromas of the grapes is carried out. This process is performed at between 13º and 15º.

Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc is finally aged in contact with its lees before being bottled and marketed.

The Marqués de Riscal winery, which was founded in 1858, was one of those pushing in 1980 for the establishment of the Rueda.

It works in three denominations of origin: the Rueda, La Rioja and Castilla y León. The success of Marqués de Riscal is recognized worldwide, as the winery exports 60% of its total production to over 100 countries.

Tasting notes Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon Blanc

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.
The 2015 vintage was rated as very good in a year where no climatic accident occurred. Autumn and winter were somewhat warmer than normal but with normal rainfall. In spring, the growth cycle started a few days in advance, but temperatures and rains continued normally until the beginning of summer. Days before the harvest, temperatures became milder and the end of ripening was very good. The wines of this vintage are characterised by a good balance between maturity and acidity. A good aromatic profile that will age correctly.

Production area 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.
