The Marques de Caceres MC 2015 is a new-generation young wine, made only in excellent vintages.

Intense, dense, dark cherry red colour. Expressive, well-defined bouquet of ripe grapes and black forest fruits with some floral notes. Fleshy and delicious in the mouth with a pleasant fullness from its tannic structure enriched by dark berry fruits and toasted notes. A wine of character with body and good length.

Marques de Caceres has crafted a limited edition wine, MC, inspired by the passion and tradition of Flamenco high fashion.

Designed in partnership with SIMOF (the Salon Internacional de la Moda Flamenca), the MC bottle celebrates the history shared between winemaking and flamenco. 2018 marks six years between Marques de Caceres and SIMOF. Each year, fashion designers submit design proposals that are evaluated by a committee of experts - including exhibitors, event organisers and renowned designers - supervised by Cristina Forner, President of Marques de Caceres.

Inside the stylish bottle, the MC Limited Edition is a 2015 new-generation wine made from 100% Tempranillo grapes, selected by hand from 65-90 year-old vineyards, in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa.  Aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels.  This wine has a pleasant fullness from its tannic structure, enriched by dark berry fruits and toasted notes.

It has a limited production of only 6,200 bottles and was released in February 2018.

Small parcels planted with old vineyards of 65-90 years old with low yields. Parcels spread over various altitudes of 400-550m above sea level in Rioja Alta and 380-500m in Rioja Alavesa.

Mainly clay and limestone soils in our parcels located in Elciego (Rioja Alavesa) and Cenicero (Rioja Alta).

Mild, Atlantic climate with marked seasons. In Rioja Alta: Rainfall of 441 litres/m2. Average annual temperature of 13,2ºC and routine sunshine of more than 2.000 hours. In Rioja Alavesa: same amount of sunshine. Rainfall of 626 litres/m2 (varies between 500 and 700 litres in the highest locations). Average annual temperature of 12,1ºC. This pattern of rainfall and temperatures leads to optimum water reserves in winter and moderate stress for the vineyards in summer. This slight lack of water combines with high amounts of sunshine during the day in the summer with cooler temperatures at night, favouring optimum maturity and the integration of the polyphenols.

100% manual harvesting in boxes of 15kg, parcel by parcel. The grapes are stored in fridges at 5-6ºC for 2 days and then undergo two selection processes; firstly a manual selecting table, followed by a second selecting table using vibration.

Slow alcoholic fermentation of 10-12 days with whole grapes in small, stainless steel tanks and indigenous yeast, at a maximum temperature of 28ºC. Gentle pumping of the juice over the skins to extract maximum aromas, colour and tannis. Prolonged maceration up to 30 days. Small dosis of micro-oxygenation until the malolactic fermentation begins in new, medium-toasted French oak barrels. This process finalises approximately 3 months later when the wine is racked and commences ageing in barrel for another 12 months.

15 months aging in new French oak. 6 months minimum aging in bottle before release.
