About Our Ratings

Rueda 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, Marques De Riscal
The French variety Sauvignon Blanc, with which Marqués de Riscal makes this varietal white wine originally comes from the Loire Valley region. It was introduced in Rueda by Marqués de Riscal in 1974 and today the winery has 168 acres of estate owned vineyard with an average age of over 25 years. It is now one of the varieties authorized by the Rueda appellation Control Board thanks to its great capacity to adapt to its surroundings and to produce wines with high aromatic intensity, good acidic balance and a touch of mineral undertones. The Marqués de Riscal Sauvignon is made according to the same process as their Rueda Verdejo. After a period of cold maceration the must is first extracted and then lightly decanted. The slow fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature to protect and preserve the primary aromas which are such a feature of this variety. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is left on its fine lees in order to increase the mouthfeel and improve ageing capacity. It shows a very complex nose with hints of fresh grass over a mineral base which gives the wine personality, and abundant fresh fruit such as citrus fruits, pineapple or melon. It leaves a fresh, aromatic taste in the mouth and has a clean, long finish.

Wonderful with Pasta DePalma
I'm just now exploring wine, and this one was quite delicious.  I don't know all the descriptive nomenclature to offer any sort of help.  Instead I will say that I enjoyed a bottle with Pasta DePalma -- angel hair with cream sauce, chicken, and artichokes -- this evening.  The wine was absolutely perfect with this meal, and I'm very pleased.
