Description

This wine was made using Tempranillo and Graciano grapes from old vines cultivated in the Finca de Torrea, on the current site of the cellar facilities of Marqués de Riscal. Finca Torrea is a modern-style wine, not just because it has a less "classical" character than the one most associated with our name, but also because of the image created by the label, which shows plot maps of the Finca de Torrea plantation, inspired by the design pattern established by the architect Frank O. Gehry with the Hotel Marqués de Riscal.

The land has the classic Rioja Alavesa chalky clay soil which has always produced the best quality throughout history. Harvesting is performed by hand into crates with a small capacity. Once they arrive at the winery, the grapes are destemmed before selection on the sorting table and subsequent light crushing.

The resulting must is then left to ferment in low-capacity, Allieroak vats at a temperature of no more than 25ºC so as to preserve the maximum fruity character in the wine. Extraction is achieved through gentle pumping over and a short period of maceration with the aim of maintaining the elegance, finesse and freshness necessary for the mouth feel to be pleasant and persistent.

Once the malolactic fermentation is complete, the wine remains in French Allier-oak casks for 18 months and after a short time rounding off in the bottle, the wine is released for sale. The style is different to that of the wines traditionally produced by Marqués de Riscal. It has a more modern character, with greater fruitiness and fewer balsamic nuances, with a shorter period of cask ageing, using French oak casks, and also shorter bottle ageing. 


AEGING

18 months in French-oak

Tasting

Appearance: Black-cherry-colour, with violet hues which signify youthfulness and good evolution.

Aroma: Intense, concentrated aroma with dark berried fruit (plums, blackberries and blueberries) which mingle elegantly with the tertiary aromas from the oak ageing, bringing out balsamic notes of liquorice and eucalyptus, a fine base of caramel and toffee, and a spicy, mineral finish which gives the wine great aromatic complexity.

Palate: It is supple and oily, with good backbone, in which the taste sensations appear at all times with great finesse and elegance. It has a very pleasant finish, long and lingering with a balsamic, spicy, mineral retronasal sensation that seems to go on and on.

Food pairing: This wine pairs well with all kinds of meat dishes: roasts, grills, stewed with mushrooms, in spicy sauces... It is a perfect match for free-range chicken and poularde casserole. It can also accompany fish dishes if they have sauces with strong flavours and aromas, such as sea bream or cod with tomato and red peppers. It is also ideal with red tuna fish.
