On our recent trip to Spain we had the pleasure of doing a tour of the Marques de Riscal winery in the Rioja, which first started producing wine in the mid 1800s! It is an architectural triumph (or dismay depending on your appreciation of architecture!) as the picture below shows.

 

They do make some really great wines at a pretty cheap price. The Marques de Riscal Reserva retailed at around 14 Euro in Spain and we picked up this bottle locally in Australia for around $30 AUD. It is soft, inviting and seriously smooth and makes a great accompaniment to anything with a bit of spice, smoke or tomato based dishes. It went fantastically with paella :)

 

It is an interesting blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo, aged for at least 26 months in oak and spending around 24 months in bottle before being released making it a true reserva.

 

This is a great wine from a really interesting winery doing some very progressive things at a great price point. We really enjoy this wine and I'm sure there will be plenty more consumed in our house!
