Marques de Riscal ‘Proximo’ Rioja 2014

Tempranillo from Spain
Review Date : 06-Jun-2016
Dark ruby-red colour with some depth and garnet hues on edge. This has a tight and firm nose with shy fruit expression, unfolding aromas of red cherry and berry fruit, along with nutty, spicy and subtle herbal notes. Medium-full bodied, flavours of raspberries, cherries and dark plums show with spice and herb nuance. The mouthfeel is elegant, the gently sweet fruit balanced by light tannin grip and driven a little by the alcohol. The textures and extract grow in presence and the wine is carried by the structure leading to a dry finish with plum and spice notes. This is a gently fruited Rioja with cherry and red fruit flavours balanced by structure and drive. Match with roasted red meat dishes and Mediterranean cuisine over the next 3 years. 100% Tempranillo, hand-picked and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 4 months in cask. 15.5+/20 Jun 2016 RRP $21.99
