Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva

It is only produced from selected vintages, Marqués de Murrieta Gran Reserva represents the perfect balance between classicism and modernity.

Marqués De Murrieta
Gran Reserva 2015

Located in our Ygay Estate, in Rioja Alta, whose vineyards occupy an area of 300 hectares surrounding the winery, with an altitude difference from 320 meters to 485 meters.

From september 14 to october 16, 2015.

The bunches are de-stemmed and gently squeezed. The grapes ferment separately in stainless steel tanks, with temperature control. The vatting lasts 9 days during which continuous pumping-over and punching tasks are carried out, to favor the contact of the must with the skins and cause a slow and natural extraction of aromas and polyphenols. After fermentation, the solid parts of the grape are pressed in vertical presses, through a gentle and slow process that favors the extraction of color and ripe tannins that reside in the skin.

The wine is aged for 27 months in 225-litre American oak barrels.

Tasting note

Over a base of balsamic aromas, there are hints of spices, ripe black berries, cassis, and figs.  The delicate aromatic range is completed with mineral and light earth notes.

The wine is refined and it has a lively palate, with silky texture that is wrapped by polished tannins and a long, persistent finish.

“A well-structure wine that has long to live. Faithful expression of the vintage and our Ygay Estate” María Vargas - Technical Manager
