Marques de Murrieta Rioja Gran Reserva DOC

2007

In a Nutshell

Mature and powerful - a real treat.

Tasting Notes

Dark intense red brick colour. Full, mature aroma of mellow red and dark fruits with hint of spicy oak. Full bodied and generous mellow fruit softening as it matures. Lovely finish and aftertaste of spicy fruit as it starts to soften and mature.

Production Notes

Grapes are first de-stemmed and then fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks for 9 days, with constant skin contact. During fermentation pumping over and punching down operations are regularly carried out. These processes ensure both effective and gentle colour and aroma extraction. Afterwards the solid parts of the grapes are pressed in a vertical press. This is a gentle process that extracts colour and ripe tannins from the grape’s skin.
