94 points, “This is a very good, serious vintage of Dalmau.” – Wine Advocate

Dalmau is Marqués de Murrieta’s most modern Rioja. The Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano grapes are harvested from the Canajas vineyard on the Ygay Estate. These then undergo a strict selection process, only the finest grapes getting through and around 50% being discarded. The wine is then matured in French oak casks for 19 months.

The resulting Rioja Reserva is herby with notes of balsamic reduction, hedgerow brambles, dark chocolate, granary toast and vanilla cream. Consider partnering it with slow-cooked meats such as game, oxtail and roast lamb, or dishes with real depth of flavour like Hungarian goulash, Mexican mole, cassoulet, roasts and grills.

Establishing his winery in 1852, Luciano Murrieta produced the first-ever Rioja, exported before anyone else in the region, and built a grand “château” on the Ygay Estate inspired by Bordeaux. So, that tells you where the idea to include Cabernet Sauvignon in this wine came from.
