The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Cape Town and Ceres districts, all cool climate winegrowing areas with the benefit of slower ripening of the grapes to achieve greater flavour intensity. The vines are grown in granite and sandstone soils, resulting in grapes with a zestier and higher natural acidity, which adds to the freshness and longevity of the wine. Open vineyard canopies bring about greater sunlight penetration of the grape bunches, contributing to more balanced acidity, in turn making the wine deliciously palatable.
Colour Crisp with a touch of lime green.
Bouquet Aromas of a highveld thunderstorm and flinty, grassy smell with zingy lemon and granadilla notes.
Palate Dusty flint with lemon zest and marmalade flavours can be found on a balanced, refreshing palate. Vivacious acidity is poised by juicy fruit nuances with some granadilla and tropical notes noticeable.
The Marqués de Riscal Viña Collada Rioja impresses with its elegantly dry taste. It was placed on the bottle with only 2.3 grams of residual sugar. This is a real quality wine that stands out clearly from simpler qualities and so this Spaniard naturally enchants with the finest balance in all dryness. Excellent taste does not necessarily require sugar. This velvety red wine is impressive and multifaceted on the palate. Thanks to the balanced fruit acid, the Viña Collada Rioja flatters with a soft mouthfeel, without letting it miss juicy liveliness at the same time. The finale of this well ripened red wine from the wine-growing region of La Rioja, more precisely from the Rioja DOCa, finally convinces with considerable reverberation.
The Viña Collada Rioja by Marqués de Riscal presents a dense ruby red colour. The nose of this Marqués de Riscal red wine reveals all kinds of shade morals, mulberries, plums, plums, plums and black cherries.
The grapes were sourced from top-performing vineyards situated in the Darling, Stellenbosch and Paarl wine-growing areas.
