Médoc wines tend to be ruby in color, balanced and well-rounded on the palate with notes of cassis, cherries and earth, with firm tannins.
While most Bordeaux wines require aging, those labeled simply ‘Médoc’ tend to be lighter in style and more approachable in their youth.
With its beauty, refinement and typicity, Marqu?s de Riscal Limousin represents the most outstanding qualities of the Verdejo grape, famed for its fragrance, fresh acidity and ageing potential.
This wine is made from grapes from bush vines 40 to 50 years old, cultivated in the best gravel soils of the highest terraces of the district of La Seca, and vines and ungrafted pre-phylloxera vines from the Segovia zone. The clusters are collected by hand one by one and taken to the winery in 15-kilo crates to avoid oxidation as far as possible. After stabilisation in cooled stainless steel vats, fermentation takes place in 600 litre wooden vats and the wine is left to age on the lees for up to 8 months.
The result of this process is a white wine with a particularly beautiful style which displays the potential and versatility of Verdejo, as well as the amazing potential of Rueda as one of the regions for the classic Spanish white wine.
This range of refreshing, fruity and smooth-drinking wines takes its name from the fifty-six hundred guilders that Philippus Wolvaart used in 1791 to start the farm he was to call Nederburg. A visionary who recognised the winegrowing potential of the land, he had the tenacity to tame the property and establish a farm that continues to flourish today.
