Marques De Riscal Sauvignon Blanc Rueda 75Cl
Sorry, this product is currently not available.
Sauvignon - White Spanish Wine.
This wine is made from the French Sauvignon Blanc grape, cultivated by Marqués de Riscal in Rueda since 1974. High in aromatic intensity, it reveals ripe fruit and hints of citrus, pineapple and grapefruit. On the palate a crisp and fresh attack with mineral notes is followed by a long herbaceous finish. It is fermented for 20 days in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of between 13 and 16°C.
In 1972 Vinos de los Herederos del Marqués de Riscal became the driving force behind the setting up of the Rueda appellation, making fresh, crisp and fruity wines to satisfy a new trend in international taste. This new style of wine-making could only be achieved in wineries equipped with the most modern technology, ensuring that all the aromas enclosed in the grapes were preserved. Continuous evolution and innovation has enabled Marqués de Riscal to harness the vineyards' full potential.

After a period of cold maceration, pressing and fining of the juice, the must is left to ferment slowly at a controlled temperature, so as to protect the primary aromas which are so peculiar to this variety. Once fermentation is complete, the wine remains in contact with its fine lees in order to increase the sensation of volume in the mouth and to improve its capacity for ageing.
Marqués de Riscal, the oldest Rioja house, has for many years been a leading company in wine production and vinification techniques, and in 1972 it was the first winery to promote the Rueda Designation of Origin, where it made its famous Marqués de Riscal white wines.In 1974, Herederos del Marqués de Riscal introduced the Sauvignon Blanc to their new winery in Rueda.
In the 21st Century, Marques de Riscal is still writing its own history with its city of wine, a project that is a milestone in the way we understand the world of wine.
