VARIETIES

100% Verdejo

PRODUCTION

Wine made using carefully selected Verdejo grapes from old, goblet-pruned vines, grown in the best gravel soil of the highest terraces of the Duero valley. This grape is highly adaptable and has good acidity, ideal for fermenting and ageing on the lees in French-oak casks. The grapes are picked by hand into 15-kilo boxes and then the whole grape, with stems, is crushed. In this way oxidation of the must is kept to a minimum and all the typical aromas, colour and freshness of the variety is preserved. After a slight clarification of the must fermentation takes place in 600-litre French-oak vats from 3 different sources: Allier, Nevers and the Vosges, and then the wine is left on the lees to age for up to 6 months. Throughout the ageing process the lees in the cask are stirred twice per week by the technique known as batonnage.

TASTING

Wine with a pale golden colour, complex and elegant. On the palate it is smooth and has a good base of fine lees, raisins and hints of toasted wood.

FOOD PAIRING

Fish in sauce, white meat, even with sauces which are not too strong-flavoured, roast lamb, char-grilled vegetables and pulse dishes.

Marqués de Riscal Rueda

VARIETIES

100% Verdejo

PRODUCTION

Bodegas de los Herederos del Marqués de Riscal S.L. has 225 hectares of vineyards planted with, among other grapes, the indigenous verdejo variety. A versatile grape with a lot of character and personality, it is very well suited to the extreme conditions of the region, allowing us to produce fresh young wines or cask-fermented whites. The verdejo grape is stemmed and cooled and left to macerate in order to extract the maximum aroma from the skins and increase the smooth oiliness of the wine. The must, once fined and clear undergoes slow fermentation at a controlled temperature of between 13ºC and 15ºC for 20 days, in order to preserve the varieties characteristic fruitiness.
After a time of maturation the wine will be bottled between January and March in the year following the harvest.

TASTING

A bright, straw-yellow coloured wine. As you expect from a verdejo wine, on the nose it has high aromatic intensity, with tropical fruit and hints of fennel and fresh grass. In the mouth it is both syrupy smooth and refreshing, with a slightly bitter finish which is typical of the variety making it long and pleasant to drink. Overall it is a fresh, well-balanced wine.

FOOD PAIRING

Fish, seafood, ham, pastas, chicken and cold meat.

Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon

Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon

VARIETIES

100% Sauvignon

PRODUCTION

The French variety Sauvignon Blanc, with which Marqués de Riscal makes this varietal white wine originally comes from the Loire Valley region. It was introduced in Rueda by Marqués de Riscal in 1974 and today the winery has 70 hectares of its own vines. It is now one of the varieties authorised by the Rueda appellation Control Board thanks to its great capacity to adapt to its surroundings and to produce wines with high aromatic intensity, good acidic balance and a touch of mineral undertones. The Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon is made according to the same process as their Rueda Verdejo. After a period of cold maceration the must is first extracted and then fined. The slow fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature of between 13ºC and 15ºC, so as to protect and preserve the primary aromas which are such a feature of this variety. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is left on its fine lees in order to increase the sense of volume in the mouth and improve its ageing capacity.

TASTING

Pale yellow colour with greenish glints. A very complex nose with hints of fresh grass over a mineral base which gives the wine personality, and abundant fresh fruit such as citrus fruits, pineapple or melon. It leaves a fresh, aromatic taste in the mouth and has a clean, long finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Seafood and pasta dishes. Ideal as an aperitif.
