Winemaker's Notes:

Attractive golden color, with shimmering pale green highlights. Fragrant bouquet with notes of minerals that blend with a touch of grapefruit and mandarins. Lively in the mouth, with fruit sensations that reveal a fresh acidity. Very pleasant fullness and good length. To be enjoyed perferably whilst young, although this wine will last longer due to its superb vivacity.

Perfect with any type of aperitif, this wine is an ideal partern for seafood and fish, as well as salads, rice dishes with fish, cottage cheese, etc.

About Marques de Caceres:

Founded in 1970, with its first release in 1975, Marqués de Cáceres the Rioja bodega was established by Henri Forner, whose family has been active in the wine business for generations. The winery is named for a Spanish peer who was also an investor in the winery and a friend of Henri Forner.

The Forner family fled Spain during the Spanish Civil War and settled in France. In the early 1960s, Henri Forner and his brother Elysée bought and restored two abandoned châteaux, Château Camensac and Château Larose-Trintaudon. These châteaux are now recognized as two of the finest properties in Bordeaux. When Henri decided to establish a bodega in his homeland, he selected what he considered the finest viticultural area in Spain: Cenicero in Rioja Alta.

Emile Peynaud, former professor and chief wine researcher at the University of Bordeaux, was initial consultant to the winery. Today, Michel Rolland is wine consultant at Marqués de Cáceres and Henri and his daughter, Christine, are at the helm. The vinification methods at Bodegas Marqués de Cáceres are similar to those used in Bordeaux. Thus, French winemaking techniques and expertise have been applied to native Spanish grapes to produce one of the finest modern Riojas.
