MARQUES DE MURRIETA

Established in 1852, Marques de Murrieta is the largest single vineyard Estate in Rioja. Luciano de Murrieta learnt his trade in Bordeaux after fighting under Espartero in the First Carlist War. He was the first person in the region to age his wines in oak barrels, creating the iconic Rioja style and pioneering exports to the rest of the world. The Bodega has only been sold once in its 165 year history, and has always been a family-run operation. Unusual for the area, they produce wine only from their own grapes which come from 28 separate plots at 400-485m of altitude across the 300 hectare estate in Rioja Alta. These are wines that are not only delicious young, but have incredible aging potential. Their most famous wine is Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial, a Tempranillo based blend that’s sourced from three special plots planted in the 1960s. Tasting old vintages of Ygay is one of the wine world’s greatest pleasures, the 1985, 1968 and 1959 all being legendary Riojas. Marqués de Murrieta marry experience, tradition and local viticultural knowledge, with a detailed and thorough understanding of modern winemaking techniques. Characterful, detailed artisan-type craft is the process, allowing the unique plots and native varieties to express themselves through their distinctive house style.

WINE GEEKS | GLORIOUS SPAIN

Relative to other wine making regions, Spain is host to some of the most diverse and downright interesting environments, where pushing against the extreme is normality. Be it the often violent Atlantic sea, the generously warm summers along the Mediterranean cost, or the scorching hot summers in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, early Spanish pioneers had to innovate and adapt their methods in the vineyard and winemaking process to not just defend against these extremes, but to capitalise on it. It is these adaptive techniques and numerous environmental permutations, that have led to our love affair with this great, often overlooked, wine producing country.

To help simplify this country for the everyday wine enthusiast, we often refer to Spain, in six regions: Green Spain, Upper Ebro, Central Spain, Meseta, Mediterranean Coast, and Andalucia. Tonight’s selection will look at white and red wines, across four of these regions.

Castillo Perelada Gran Claustro 2013 (DO Penedes), Pazo De Barrantes Albarino 2015 (DO Rias Baixas), Marques de Murrieta Capellania 2014 (DOCa Rioja), Estones Unic PX 2015 (DO Terra Alta), Quinta Sardonia 2011 (Castilla y leon VT), Teso la Monja Victorino 2007 (DO Toro), and Bodegas Lavia Monastrell 2005 (DO Bullas).
