Marques de Riscal
Finca Torrea 2017
Rioja - doca

Cépage Tempranillo
Graciano
Ageing 18 months in Barrels

Description

This wine has been made using tempranillo and graciano grapes from an old vineyard cultivated inside the Finca de Torrea estate it is a "village wine" from  Elciego, where the Marqués de Riscal City of Wine is located.

Finca Torrea is a modern-style wine with a very up-to-date profile, more fruit and less herby in character and aged for a shorter time both in the cask and in the bottle. It is a different style to the wines that Marqués de Riscal have traditionally made, not only due to its modern character, but also for the image of its label showing the map of the vineyard plots of the Finca de Torrea, inspired by the line of design marked by the architect Frank O.Gehry with the Hotel Marqués de Riscal.

It is an elegant, fresh wine, easy to drink yet with a certain air of gravity, which really shows the quality of our Elciego vineyards.

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.

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.
