Product Description
Details

A varietal, single estate Verdejo from DO Rueda, Marqués de Riscal Finca Montico is made from vineyards over 40 years of age.

The vines are planted on terraces on the banks of the Duero river. Soils are very poor, composed mainly of gravel.

Produced by Marqués de Riscal, the grapes were harvested in little boxes to avoid fruit bruising. Once in the cellar, they were cold-soaked and delicately pressed in order to obtain a high quality free-run juice.

Then half of this Spanish white wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks.

After that, 80% of this organic white wine was aged on lees in the tanks for 4 to 6 months, while the rest completed the process in a 6,000-litre French oak vat. Finally, both wines were blended, and this white wine from Rueda was bottled.

The elegance of Marqués de Riscal Finca Montico 2018 is remarkable.

Appearance

The white wine Marqués de Riscal Finca Montico has a very bright, clean pale yellow colour with some greenish and golden tinges.

Nose

Clean, precise mineral notes and well-defined aromas of bitter herbs, fennel and flowers, typical of Verdejo white wine. The wine Finca Montico 100% organic also suggests notes of tropical fruit and citrus, and a dim minerality

Palate

Refined and crisp, this white wine aged on lees by Bodega Marqués de Riscal conveys a clear sense of terroir. Smooth texture, quite detailed, with a first-class acidity and long, complex finish with remembrances of fennel, aniseed and hay.

Our personal opinion

Elegant and characteristic, Marqués de Riscal Finca Montico 2018 demonstrates that Verdejo can produce first rate wines.

One of the best Verdejos out there, comparable to Belondrade but much more affordable.

Very subtle and classy. Nose is suprisingly delicate for a Verdejo. The palate is mineral, crisp and very precise. Excellent.
