About Marqués de Murrieta Reserva

Marqués de Murrieta Reserva is an excellent red wine from D.O. Rioja made by Bodegas Marqués de Murrieta, a classic winery in Rioja that has more than 160 years experience in the world of viniculture.  
The 2009 vintage was rated by the Regulatory Board as "very good" in this Denomination of Origin.
It was the fourth consecutive year that they received this rating, and that made La Rioja remain in the market as a benchmark for the highest quality requirements.
This wine is a coupage of Tempranillo, Garnacha tinta, Mazuelo and Graciano varieties grown in Finca Ygay that can be found between 320 meters to 485 metres above sea level.
The climate of this estate is continental. Thanks to the location of the estate, close to Sierra de Cantabria, the temperatures are very mild and the mountain is a barrier for the cold winds from the north.
As for the production, after destemming and a gentle squeezing of the bunches, the grapes undergo a fermentation in stainless steel deposits. Afterwards, it is placed in vats for 8 days. Once the fermentation process has finished, the solid parts of the grape are pressed in vertical presses in order to obtain the best colour extraction and ripe tannins that reside in the skin.
Finally, Marqués de Murrieta Reserva rests for 16 months in American oak barrels and 24 months in the bottle. This wine is a mix of classicism and modernity.
