History
Marqués de Griñón began in Rioja 20 years ago developing a Tempranillo monovarietal with 6 months of aging in new American oak barrels, something revolutionary at that time. To celebrate its twentieth anniversary in Rioja, its last creation is “Special Selection”, a limited edition produced with Tempranillo grapes from selected vineyards of Rioja Alta, specifically from towns of Nájera, Arenzana, Manjarrés and Uruñuela, aged 18 months in American oak.
Regional Information
La Rioja Alta is located in the northwest of the autonomous community of La Rioja. La Rioja Baja is in the east, and includes 42 Riojan municipalities and the 8 Navarre municipalities attached to the denomination. And the Rioja Alavesa is a historic region of Álava, located on the southern border of the Basque Country and separated from the Rioja Alta by the Ebro river.

Vinification Details
The Marques de Griñon winemaking philosophy is based on preserving the organoleptic values of each variety, applying the principle of minimum handling and performing the essential operations. The harvest is done manually in boxes of 15-17 Kg, which are unloaded at a selection table. After this, the grapes are destemmed and taken to the fermentation tanks, where a 1-2 day pre-fermentation is carried out at a low temperature, after this step the alcoholic fermentation takes place, where the sugar is transformed into alcohol at a controlled temperature. The wine remains in contact with the skins for a few weeks and after this the stripping and pressing of the skins takes place, which is done in a light way. Then the wine makes a second fermentation, malolactic fermentation, where malic acid is transformed into lactic acid, a softer acid than the first. After this the wine enters new or almost 100% French oak barrels and 225 liters capacity. The barrels have, at most, an age of 4 years. Th

Waste of money

I bought this wine after reading the reviews and I totally disagree with most of the reviews. I order wine regularly and normally like Rioja but this particular wine I found really sour tasting. I found it undrinkable and I am afraid I tipped it down the sink. Which is a first for me as I have never thrown wine away before.

tried it twice, still vile

Awful stuff, tastes of bananas. Absolutely would not buy again. Confirmed it by having it twice from two separate shops.

One of the best Riojas

When this wine is on offer, you cannot beat it for its all round smooth and balanced taste. Absolutely love it!

Great!

Really enjoyed this a lot! Has lovely flavours, the blueberry especially came through for me. It was very easy to drink, good body with a lush finish.

Nothing special

Just an ordinary wine worth half the price. It is not awful, just ok. Have had much better from Ocado.

Sediment issues?

I wondered if it was just me given all the positive reviews, but I see a few others have also had issues with an inconsistent flavour not in line with a normal Rioja, and quite a lot of sediment. I think, overall whilst it was OK once open for a while, it wasn't worth the price, or the sediment shock!
