Grape variety Sauvignon Blanc
Average age of the VINES 25 years old vines


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 from estate owned vineyards with an average age of over 25 years.

It is now one of the varieties authorised by the Rueda D.O. Control Board thanks to its great capacity to adapt to the conditions and to produce wines with high aromatic intensity, good acidic balance and mineral undertones. The Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon is made by following the same process as the RuedaVerdejo.

After a period of cold maceration the must is racked off and clarified. 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 to increase the full-bodied feel in the mouth and to improve its suitability and to improve its ageing capacity.


Appearance : Pale yellow colour with greenish glints.

Aroma : 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.

Palate : It leaves a fresh, aromatic taste in the mouth and has a clean, long finish.

FOOD MATCHES : This wine goes perfectly with all kinds of seafood and pasta dishes. Ideal as an aperitif.
