From Marqués de Murrieta's Ygay estate in La Rioja Alta, the exceptionally ripe grapes used in this Reserva are carefully selected, hand-picked and aged in small oak barriques for 2 years with further bottle maturation before it is released.
Flavours of ripe plum, red cherry and berries blend with spicy notes of licorice and sweet balsamic. The wine is silky and well balanced with rounded tannins and refreshing acidity. The long, mineral finish has notes of sweet spice and ripe plum fruit.
Food Pairing: The Spanish love their lamb, beef and - obviously - jamón! This is the perfect partner.
Grape Varieties: 84% Tempranillo, 5% Mazuelo, 9% Graciano, 2% Garnacha

The nose is deep, fruity and delicately spiced whilst the palate provides flavours of cherries and silky, fine grained tannins. An overall feeling of freshness, this wine oozes delicate elegance.
Medium body, light and silky texture. Very fruity with very fresh red fruits. The tannins are very fine and fresh leaving a feeling of daintiness and softness.
It would be hard to find a more highly praised, recognised and awarded wine than this Garnacha!
