MARQUES DE MURRIETA PAZO DE BARRANTES ALBARINO 2015/2016

Wine Region: Rioja, Spain

Grape: Albariño.

Tasting Notes

An Albariño of great personality, with a striking and fragrant varietal character and surprising bottle ageing potential. It charms the nose with intense floral, fruity and balsamic aromas and delights the mouth with its depth, elegance and freshness. Pazo Barrantes is a perfect blend of structure and silkiness, complexity and exuberance, longevity and immediate enjoinment.

Ratings

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 90/91 points - "It has a very expressive nose and its creamy on the palate following its characteristic style, while maintaining the freshness and acidity. It is evolving very well and gaining complexity."

About the Winery
Marqués de Murrieta´s foundation is linked to the origins of the Rioja wines since Luciano Murrieta produced in 1852 the first Rioja wine and was also the first one to export his wines. Luciano, appointed Marquis by the King Amadeo of Savoy thanks to his work in Rioja, travelled to Bordeaux to learn the winemaking techniques that he introduced later in Spain. He established the concept of “château” in the Ygay Estate where he built the emblematic Ygay Castle.
