Marqués de Riscal Rioja Reserva 2015

The Marqués de Riscal Rioja Reserva is one of the most famous wines in Spain, due to its long history, consistent high quality and also for the many literary references it has inspired over the years. The wine has been enjoyed for generations by wine lovers all over the world, and praised by celebrities from the world of the arts and culture such as Ernest Hemingway, Salvador Dalí and Frederick Forsyth. Famous for its bottle wrapped in a metallic gold mesh, today it can be found in over 100 countries, and it is regarded as a benchmark for Rioja red wines. The Riscal Rioja Reserva is a blend of Tempranillo and Graciano grapes that spend 24 months in American oak. Intense black-cherry in colour this Rioja displays expressive aromas on the nose with notes of liquorice, cinnamon, black pepper and just a subtle hint of the long cask-ageing, thanks to its great complexity and ripe, concentrated fruit. Fresh and easy to drink on the palate, good backbone and lovely, polished tannins. The long, persistent finish leaves gentle balsamic reminders of the finest quality.
