Marqués de Cáceres, Gaudium, Rioja, Spain 2012

A full bodied impressive red wine from Rioja, Spain

The grapes come from a special selection of 70 yo vineyards with a parcel of 1.5ha of pre-phylloxera vineyards likely to be 120 years old plus. Marques De Caceres an award winning winery was founded in 1970 by Enrique Forner, now 5 generations on the family all have one thing in common, an obsession to produce wines of distinct quality from the best vine growers and vineyards in La Rioja.

Tasting Notes:
Dark colour almost black. A superb complex bouquet of rich, wild blackberries and refined spice showing the attributes of the old vines. Pleasantly full in the mouth where elegance and character is enriched by a firm tannic structure and a touch of minerality followed by a long complex, refreshing finish. Only 26,500 bottles were produced for this vintage from 89 barrels.

Serving Suggestion:
Enjoy with red meats and mature cheeses. Decant before serving and serve at room temperature.
