Produced by the Marqués de Murrieta winery, Dalmau Reserva is the winery's take on what has been called "Rioja's modern style."
The grapes of this Vino de Pago come from "Pago Canajas", a 9-hectare centenary vineyard which surrounds the Finca Ygay winery in the traditional Château style.
In order to ensure superior quality, grape production was rigorously limited. Thus, vine yields were under 1 kilogram per plant.
Harvested by hand and meticulously selected, the grapes were separately fermented in oak vats for a period of 11 days. After that, this Reserva red wine from La Rioja was aged for 23 months in new Allier oak barrels. The wine was bottled unfiltered in February 2021.
Finally, Dalmau Reserva 2017 was aged for another 12 months in the cellar prior to its release.
Decant this red wine from La Rioja 1 hour before drinking.
19,758 bottles produced.
The wine Dalmau Reserva is deep cherry with a garnet rim.
Deep and complex, this blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano suggests pristine notes of ripe black fruit, a dreamy bouquet of Eastern spices, resounding notes of dry earth, and some mineral remembrances combined with touches of flowers and some creamy and balsamic aromas.
This wine from Bodega Marqués de Murrieta is still a bit tight, but it already announces its future greatness. Bold and velvety, showing impressive focus and remarkable nuance. Superb black fruit, a dash of amarena cherries, and flavours of bitter chocolate, pipe tobacco, fine leather and undergrowth. Exceptional acidity, bold tannins and a long, very complex finish.
