Review

In each bottle of Marqués de Riscal Reserva there exists a history, in fact the history of La Rioja's oldest winery, and the one which was already conserving the largest number of bottles back in the 1920s, when no other bodega had started to store its wines. They were pioneers at Riscal in the production of modern wine back then, following the techniques employed in Bordeaux, and they continue today to be right out in front. Most definitely, an excellent winery.

The Marqués de Riscal winery was also pioneer in bringing the French grape variety, the Sauvignon Blanc to Rueda. The first vines took root in 1974 and it is now one of the officially-accepted varieties grown in this appellation. At present the winery has 70 hectares of vines with an average age of over 25 years old.

The Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon offers aromas of fresh fruit, such as citrics, pineapple, and melon, and notes of minerals and fresh grass. Aged over its fine lees for a short period of time, the production method gives it plenty of volume and provides us with a wine which can evolve well in the bottle for at least two years. Its excellent acidity leaves a pleasant feeling of freshness in the mouth, with a clear, long and lingering finish.

Un ottimo vino bianco

Anche il tappo a vite denota accuratezza nella conservazione dei vini giovani. Sapore gustoso ottimo vino bianco.

1st time trying this wine

Great fan of the vineyard, but the first time trying this wine, loved it, a bit more grown up than the Verdejo. I will be ordering it again

Good unfussy Sauvignon Blanc

Having drunk the Marquis de Riscal Verdejo I thought I would try their Sauvignon Blanc. Nice crisp clean wine perfect for fish or as an aperitif. Will get more.

The grade of Acidity is to high...

Muy acido y aspero al paladar. Era mucho mejor la variedad " VIURA" de Rueda Marques de Riscal que prove en Spain.

Valor seguro

Como el excelente servicio, comunicación y atención de Vinissimus, este vino es un valor seguro. Afrutado, fresco, ligero, nunca defrauda.

Marqués de Riscal's history began in 1858 when its founder, Camilo Hurtado de Amézaga, started to apply in Elciego wine-making techniques employed in Bordeaux.
