Marques de Tomares Rioja 2018
Varietal: Pinot Noir
The insanely valued, storied wines from Marqués de Tomares are the perfect expressions of traditional Rioja that is still fresh, fruit forward and beautifully balanced. There is an elegance, a seamless stitch that runs through these vintage classics.
Dry farmed, sustainable/non-certified organic. Multiple small lots of 50-75 year-old vines from Rioja Alavesa and Alta are used to create MdT Crianza. The region's Calcareous clay soils have a moderate yield, while goblet-trained old vines limit the production of this offering. Micro lots of Mazuelo are sourced for its tannin structure and color, while small amounts of Viura are used for acidity.
