Marqués de Riscal Próximo is a new addition to the Marqués range and is a bright and fruit driven Rioja style sourced from slightly younger Tempranillo vines. Very strict parcel selection along with traditional picking techniques, this Rioja is bursting with dark blackberry fruit with notes of rich, ripe plums. Hints of liquorice and star anise also give the wine a superb backbone that is perfectly suited many Mediterranean cuisines.
Extraordinary value from one of Spain's best-known wineries. Made from tempranillo grown in the Rioja district, it has dark-berry, cola, earth and light vanillan aromas ahead of a light-to-medium-bodied palate of ripe flavour and good texture. It finishes with fine-grained dry tannins adding a savoury signature.

Char, nuts, berries, spice and meat - but fresh. It's light to medium weight with a core of sweet red berry fruit juxtaposed with more serious grippy furry tannin. Not a lot of depth, but has easy drinking savoury appeal to compensate. Some dried herb bitterness on finish. A good mid-week, food-friendly, change of pace wine. Value and interest here.
