Wine of the Week – Marques de Murrieta Reserva 2010 €23.99 now €16.99 by Suzi Redmond
At the O’Brien’s Wine fair held last month I tried this recent arrival to the O’Brien’s portfolio. Coming from on of the most iconic houses in Rioja. This wine will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit.
On the nose you have deep earthy aromas which are balanced out with stewed fruits of you expect at Christmas along with wild berries and juicy sultanas.
The aromas glide onto the palate with such grace you almost miss the gentle tannins. A rich and supple wine with plenty of depth that you would expect from a quality rioja.
According to my notes it is Christmas in a bottle and perfect timing as it is currently on offer at €16.99 for December. This will pair well with red meat and game.
