Marqués de Riscal Rioja Reserva voted on ‘Top 100 Wines of the Year’ list 10/9/2007

Decanter magazine has just announced that Marqués de Riscal Reserva 2002 has been selected as one of the ‘Top 100 Wines of the Year’ as a result of the wine gaining 5 stars (Decanter Award) in a recent panel tasting for the magazine. The top 100 wines will be featured in a special December issue.

This latest honour for top Spanish winery Marqués de Riscal follows another prestigious placing earlier this year on Food & Wine Magazine’s list - the ‘Top 50 Wines You Can Always Trust’.

Marqués de Riscal has always been a leading and pioneering company in the wine producing sector. As far back as 1858, it became the first winery in the Rioja to produce wines following the Bordeaux method and in 1972, it was the first winery to promote the Rueda Designation of Origin, where it produces its famous Marqués de Riscal white wines.

The Reserva wines of Marqués de Riscal are made principally from Tempranillo vines which are over 15 years old. This is a variety that ages well in wood, producing wines with a good tannic structure, colour and acidity. The wines then spend approximately two years in American oak barrels, forming an excellent, classic Rioja wine.

Marqués de Riscal sells its products in over 70 countries, including Malta, and its wines enjoy the highest international distinctions as well as numerous awards and mentions in the media.

Decanter magazine is - quite simply - the world’s best wine magazine. Sold in 92 countries, Decanter is required reading for everyone with an interest in wine - from connoisseurs to amateur enthusiasts.
