Marqués de Riscal has been voted the second best vineyard in the world and have been making premium Spanish wines since 1858.

At Marqués de Riscal, there used to be “winemaker’s wines” among its Historic Reservas. In the tradition of the Bordeaux cellar masters, the oenologist marked barrels with the letters XR, indicating wines with special characteristics which were not present in others. A custom dating back to 1869.

The Marqués de Riscal XR pays tribute to these uniquely wonderful wines which have graced the Marqués de Riscal cellars over the years. Marqués de Riscal XR is truly a delight. It continues to grow from the point of opening.

Marqués de Riscal XR begins with sweet, smoked and spicy notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Liquorice sweets then come through alongside ripe blueberries, blackcurrants, black cherries and touches of syrupy balsamic.

Marqués de Riscal XR has also spent 2 years being aged in American oak, so expect a big whack of vanilla to be perfectly integrated in. Then, through a further time spent ageing in the bottle, Marqués de Riscal XR has notes of dried fruits, figs and a real gamey quality.

Marqués de Riscal XR is rich, complex and expertly structured. It will be great to drink now, or be laid down for good amount of time. Do not miss out on this one!
