General information

The elegant 'rosé' by Marqués de Cáceres

One of the best-known Rioja wineries, both in Spain and elsewhere, is the signatory of this delicate rosé that the Club proposes this time round: Excellens 2017, a wine which Marqués de Cáceres satisfies the most demanding palates with, and who like the latest trends.

Elegance and personality. These are the two characteristics that define Marqués de Cáceres Excellens 2017: a balanced wine in the mouth, full-flavoured, pleasant and fruity, a perfect representative of the style of the new rosés, paler and more subtle, with more affinity towards a white than a red, and so fashionable in recent years. Excellens 2016 is made from Garnacha tinta grapes (60%) from the vineyards that the winery has planted at the highest point in the upper Rioja region, giving that greater finesse; and Tempranillo grapes (40%), also grown in the cooler areas of Cenicero and the Álava region of Rioja. Precisely to preserve that freshness, harvesting was done manually, in the early hours of the morning.

Controlled maceration is the salient feature of the process of vinification, extracting all the aromas, without too much colour, and the later separate bleeding of the garnacha tinta and the tempranillo, a key phase that produces the best quality of wine and enhances the primary aromas of the grape, giving this rosé a very fine nose.

Enjoy this fresh, vivacious and delicate rosé from one of the most famous Rioja wineries. A wine you can now taste at its best at a unique price: £59.90, at £9.98 a bottle.
