Pairing up perfectly and specially presented in a gift pack: 6 bottles of Marqués de Murrieta Reserva accompanied by 6 fantastic Schott Zwiesel Ivento Bordeaux Glass wine glasses TOTALLY FREE!

The elegance and maturity of a great Reserva red wine from La Rioja, made by one of the region's most emblematic wineries boasting over 150 years of history, Marqués de Murrieta. The design and precision of Schott Zwiesel wine glasses, a benchmark in the craftsmanship of crystal glassware, and highly sought-after among wine lovers due their durability, brilliance, transparency and sonority. Enjoy the Murrieta's complexity and balance in this stunning glass, and take pleasure in the wine's frankness, fullness and persistence.

Bright cherry red colour. Ample bouquet full of subtle elegant oak and ripe red fruits: red cherry jam, coffee and spices. An intense, well-balanced palate, with a rich expression of ripe fruit, with sweet toasty notes, (coffee and chocolate), and a subtle finish that is long with good tannin and finesse.

Established in 1852, Murrieta are one of the oldest and most respected bodegas of Rioja. Their wines are made in a "classic" Rioja style and receive long ageing in barrel before release. Their wines are concentrated and long-lived, both red and white, and some - like the Gran Reserva "Castillo Ygay" - have become legendary amongst Rioja-lovers. Marques de Murrieta have not stood back and stagnated, however: Their 300-hectare estate now has Cabernet Sauvignon planted for their Dalmau blend which represents Murrieta's avante-garde expression of Riojan terroir. There is also a small estate in Galicia called Pazo Barrantes which produces top quality Albarino.

Grapes are first de-stemmed and then fermented in stainless Steel tanks for 8 days at controlled temperature in constant skin contact. During fermentation pumping over and punching down operations are regularly carried out. These processes ensure both effective and gentle colour and aroma extraction. Afterwards the solid parts of the grapes were are pressed in vertical presses with double screws.

The wine is aged for 16 months in 225 litre American oak barrels.

The Marques de Murrieta Red Reserva pairs well with Baked red snapper with grilled vegetables, white wine, apple, lime and rosemary; Cameros truffle with mushrooms, and cabbage with extra virgin olive oil; Milk-fed lamb chops with buttermilk, asparagus and red wine; Suckling pig confit with its crunchy skin and caramelized apple.
