TASTING NOTES

This limited edition white wine, fermented on its fine lees, reveals an intense and complex  bouquet  of  apples  and  white  peaches  with  a  depth  of  mature  pears  and refined  toasted  notes.  Made from  10,8 hectares  of  vineyard  parcels  planted  with old vine-stocks of Viura.

VINIFICATION

Fermented on its lees in brand new French oak barrels. The process involves stirring 3 times a week for two and a half months to add complexity to the vivacity derived from the fruit. The wine is then clarified and bottled.

 

GRAPE VARIETIES

93% Viura, 7% local Malvasía

Marques de Caceres

Marques de Caceres was founded in 1970 by Henrique Forner, who had recently returned from living in Bordeaux, where his family had moved during the Spanish Civil War. Forner believed Rioja was too oaky and introduced measures to modernise its style. He was the first to use stainless steel fermentation and reduced the time his wines spent in barrel, he also used more new oak. These measures whilst radical at the time, have become much more prevalent across the region.
