Tasting Notes of Marques De Riscal Txakoli 75cl.
With a beautiful greenish-yellow color, it offers aromas of white fruits (pear, apple) and citrus (grapefruit). Subtle herbaceous and floral notes are also perceived. In the mouth it is very fresh, with a highly integrated acidity, with body and volume enhanced by the work carried out with its lees. Long, enveloping, aromatic and very persistent finish.
Marqués de Riscal is a txakoli made from the Hondarrabi Zuri grape, grown on the Upaingoa estate in the Gipuzkoan municipality of Oñati. The farm is located in the Oñati valley, at the foot of Mount Aloña, in the Alto Deba region, 60 km from the sea and 250 m above sea level. To make this txakoli, the best Hondarrabi Zuri plot was selected from the farm planted in 2007 and cultivated using the trellis system. This txakoli expresses the character of the area with a temperate Atlantic climate. Manual harvest in boxes, gently pressed and a static cold racking is carried out at 8º to 10º C. Slow fermentation at a controlled temperature between 17º-19º C. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation, it is aged for 5 months on fine lees in stainless steel tank. It has not been clarified or stabilized, it has only been filtered before bottling.
