With a history dating back to 1840 when the first vineyards were planted on the Hacienda Pradolagar estate the name Marques de Vargas is synonymous with a devotion to cultivating and marketing some of the finest Rioja wines.
Tasting notes:Elegance and complexity combine. The nose hints of balsamic, cedar and spices with fresh red and dark fruit character on the palate. Well polished tannins and a long developed finish.
Region, grape variety and technical information:Manuel harvesting with grape bunches entered into refrigeration chambers within minutes of being picked to retain the quality of the fruit. A blend of 70% Tempanillo, 13% Garnacha and 17% Mazuelo aged in French oak for 23 months showcases the best of La Rioja at fantastic value.
Food pairing: Combines brilliantly with meats or cheeses with a rich flavour and depth. Why not try The MDV reserva with Jose's Venison fillet with wild mushrooms and chestnuts from his Andalusia recipe book.
