Dalmau 2019

The most expressive and modern-style wine of Marqués de Murrieta, a true reflection of the vineyard from which it comes.

Sold Out

Dalmau emerged to open new paths in our historic winery and has been consolidated as a great wine with a unique personality.

Canajas vineyard defines Dalmau and grants its refined character after its ageing in French barrels. Its limited production is determined by the low yields obtained from this exceptional vineyard.

Dalmau 2019

A selection of the best grapes available from our 9-hectare (22 acres) single vineyard called Canajas, located at 465 m altitude and planted in 1950. Its soil is mainly iron-clay with a stony topsoil, which favours optimal ripening. After veraison, crop-thinning is carried out to limit production up to 1 kg per vine, selecting bunches with small, concentrated berries.

Graciano was harvested on September 28th , cabernet sauvignon on September 29th and tempranillo on September 30th .

Once received at the winery, grapes are first de-stemmed and carefully selected. Then, each grape variety ferments separately for around 10 days in 13,900 - litre Allier French oak vats at controlled temperature. During this period, regular pumping over and delestage are carried out to ensure a perfect extraction of polyphenolic compounds.

20 months in Allier French oak barrels and 6 months in concrete vats before bottling.

Blue duck breast with boletus and fine black truffle mousse, blackberries and red wine sorbet. Fluid 85 dark chocolate cake, crunchy pistachio and raspberry praline. Truffled cheese cream on a blueberry coulis.

Tasting note

The nose is defined by deep ripe black fruit with hints of black spices, balsamic and mineral aromas. Full-bodied, juicy tannins and endless spicy finish. Powerful, round and solid. “A Dalmau with strong character, more concentrated and expressive compared to its predecessors” Maria Vargas - Technical Director.
