White Wine Marqués de Riscal Limousin 2018
Availability: In stock
Produced by the prestigious Rioja winery Marqués de Riscal, Marqués de Riscal Limousin is a varietal Verdejo Spanish white wine from the DO Rueda. It is made from old bush vines planted on terraces overlooking the Duero river.
The Verdejo grapes were picked up by hand. Once in the cellar, they were pressed whole bunch to preserve the colour and aromas of the variety, and also to protect the wine must from oxidation. Gently clarified, the must was fermented in 600-litre oak barrels from Allier, Nevers and Vosges. During the process, the lees were stirred twice a week to enhance the creaminess and roundness of this Rueda white wine.
The wine Marqués de Riscal Limousin 2018 is a varietal Verdejo with a Burgundian spirit.
The white wine Marqués de Riscal Limousin has a pale golden colour with some grey tinges.
With a medium-high aromatic intensity, this Verdejo combines a precise varietal character -white fruit, bitter herbs, fennel, hay- with a judicious oak ageing that highlights its qualities, adding some delicate notes of toast, vanilla and spices.
This wine of Marqués de Riscal is well-defined, gently unctuous and nicely textured. Very fresh, with remembrances of lime, green coffee, spices and bitter herbs. Long finish.
|Our personal opinion||
The wine Marqués de Riscal Limousin 2018 is complex and substantial. It will pair wonderfully with a lobster paella, a roast suckling pig, or a platter of creamy cheeses.
