Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

The prestigious Rioja winery Marqués de Cáceres produces this interesting monovarietal of Sauvignon Blanc in D.O. Rueda. Marqués de Cácereshas its own vineyard and the latest technologies to preserve the quality of the grape and express what it and the land have to offer us.

Marqués de Cáceres has 125 hectares of vineyards that are some 30 to 40 years old, at about 750 metres above sea level. In Rueda the continental climate predominates, with an average temperature of 13 ºC, and an average annual rainfall of around 460 mm. The main variety grown by Marqués de Cáceres in Rueda is Verdejo, a variety that is native to the area, but they also grow Sauvignon Blanc, accepted by the D.O. Rueda and very well adapted to the area and to its sandy soils in the lower areas and stony and gravelly soils in the highlands.

Marqués de Cáceres Excellens Sauvignon Blanc is harvested at night. Once in the cellar the grapes are cooled a little more and pressed gently. The must is fermented at 15-17 ºC and the wine is kept with the fine lees until it is stabilised and bottled. By carrying out these operations, the aromas of the grape are better preserved, and a certain creaminess is achieved in the final wine.

Marqués de Cáceres Excellens Sauvignon Blanc is a good example of how Sauvignon Blanc has adapted to Rueda, giving a wine with tropical aromas and those of stone fruit, mineral touches and a pleasant volume and creaminess in the mouth.

Marqués de Cáceres, and especially its founder, Enrique Forner, revolutionized the concept of Rioja wine in the 70s with a business model focused exclusively on quality. An obsession that, even today, remains one of the pillars on which the fifth generation of this illustrious wine family is established. A spirit based on continuous evolution, with a remarkable policy of investment in innovation and technology, but also far from the more or less passing trends. Currently, the wines from Marques de Cáceres are present in more than 120 countries. But, above all, they are the reality that interprets the personal challenge of its founder. His innate sensitivity and his unique vision of the future have made his wines take part in that secret complicity between science, nature, and pleasure, harvest after harvest.

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.
