Cépage Tempranillo

Ageing 18 months in Barrels

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.

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.
