Style Full and fresh
Classic Rioja, with a wonderful depth of flavour. Intense cherry red in colour with aromas of red berries, ripe plum, licorice, chopped nuts and balsamic. On the palate the wine is silky and balanced with rounded tannins and fresh acidity. The finish is long and mineral with a hint of sweet spice.
Country Of Origin: Spain
Established in 1852, Murrieta is one of the oldest and most respected bodegas in Rioja Alta. Their wines are concentrated and long-lived and some, like �Castillo Ygay�, have become legendary amongst wine-lovers. Marqu�s de Murrieta has not stood back and stagnated however; their 300 hectare estate produces Dalmau � a blend which represents an avant-garde expression of their terroir.

The Vineyards are all within the 300 hectare Ygay estate, surrounding the winery in the southern point of Rioja Alta wine area, there is an altitude difference of 165 metres between the lowest point at 320 metres and the highest peak at 485 metres.

Grapes are first de-stemmed then fermented in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks for eight days, with constant skin contact. During fermentation wine is both pumped over and also the cap is pressed into the fermenting wine. Afterwards the must is pressed in vertical presses with double screws. This is a smooth and slow treatment that offers maximum extraction of colour and tannins that reside in the skins.
