The freshness of the fruit predominates in the nose of the Marqués de Murrieta Reserva 2016; aromas of strawberry, cherry, floral hints, notes of eucalyptus, thyme and fine woodwork. On the palate, the wine is harmonious, fresh and with polished tannins that give it a pleasant texture. Its fruity and long finish leaves an extraordinary sensation of freshness.
Established in 1852, Murrieta is one of the oldest and most respected bodegas in Rioja Alta. Their wines are concentrated and long-lived and some, like “Castillo Ygay”, have become legendary amongst wine-lovers. Marqués de Murrieta has not stood back and stagnated however; their 300 hectare estate produces Dalmau – a blend which represents an avant-garde expression of their terroir.
Food matches: All kind of red meats, bellota ham, grilled fish and dishes with rich sauces.
