Marques de Caceres revamps Rioja Crianza label

13 May, 2018

Marques de Caceres has revealed a new look Rioja Crianza label, made from a selection of parcels from 15 to 25 year-old vineyards located in both Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa.

The wine is aged in oak barrels for ageing, with racking every six months. Marques de Caceres Crianza spends 12 months in French and American oak barrels and it ages in bottle for 12 months prior to release.

Dan Harwood, head of wine education at Halewood Wine & Spirits, said: “The Rioja Crianza from Marques de Caceres is true to its style, with a black cherry colour and ruby red highlights. One the nose there are balsamic notes, hints of red berry fruits, toasted bread and cocoa. Served at 16 degrees C, there is also a touch of spice in the mouth, with notes of vanilla and succulent fruits.”

The new look bottle has just been launched and is now available for the off-trade.
