Winemaker Notes

The Gran Reserva Marques del Puerto enjoys the characteristics of the best classic wines, with an intense red ruby color with ochre shades, and compote, nuts and elegant oak aromas. Its mouth is velvety and persistent.

Recommended for its lengthy ageing with roasted meat, game stew, lamb stew and cured cheese. A gastronomic discovery is to pair the wine with chocolate-based sweets or nuts.

Blend: 92% Tempranillo, 6% Mazuelo, 2% Graciano

Wine Enthusiast
Warm, ripe, earthy aromas of plum and berry are welcoming. This is moderately tannic, with lasting acidity. Oaky aromas of coconut and vanilla blend nicely with loamy earth, black plum and prune flavors. A mellow, flavorful, smooth finish amounts to a fine ending; drink through 2020.

Marques del Puerto Winery Image
Bodegas Marques del Puerto is located in the Rioja Alta Region, in Fuentemayor, 11 km from Logrono.

Built in the 70s, the winery consists of a number of buildings in traditional style, rising above the vineyards. A scene giving our brand its own identity. The winery is the heart of Marques del Puerto and is what gives the wines their own character and personality.

The interior exudes calm and know how. The methods of preparation and subterranean ageing, the correct choice of the barrels, combining American and French oak, and the oenologist's careful monitoring of every single stage of the elaboration process, make it possible to define the wines of Bodegas Marques del Puerto as the fruit of a job well done.

Highly regarded for distinctive and age-worthy red wines, Rioja is Spain’s most celebrated wine region. Made up of three different sub-regions of varying elevation: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental. Wines are typically a blend of fruit from all three, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta, at the highest elevation, is considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier Rioja Oriental produce wines with deep color and higher alcohol, which can add great body and richness to a blend.

Fresh and fruity Rioja wines labeled, Joven, (meaning young) see minimal aging before release, but more serious Rioja wines undergo multiple years in oak. Crianza and Reserva styles are aged for one year in oak, and Gran Reserva at least two, but in practice this maturation period is often quite a bit longer—up to about fifteen years.

Tempranillo provides the backbone of Rioja red wines, adding complex notes of red and black fruit, leather, toast and tobacco, while Garnacha supplies body. In smaller percentages, Graciano and Mazuelo (Carignan) often serve as “seasoning” with additional flavors and aromas. These same varieties are responsible for flavorful dry rosés.

White wines, typically balancing freshness with complexity, are made mostly from crisp, fresh Viura. Some whites are blends of Viura with aromatic Malvasia, and then barrel fermented and aged to make a more ample, richer style of white.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
