Marqués del Silvo Rioja 2019
- Medium bodied
This is your weekday Rioja - younger, fresher and easier than its aged counterparts and all the better for it. It’s a blend of 85% tempranillo, 10% garnacha and 5% graciano, with all the grapes coming together to make a very tasty wine. There’s cherry and licorice on the nose, followed by ripe plum, sour cherry and a touch of cola on the palate. Medium-bodied and just delicious, with or without food.
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Jack doesn't live here - Tempranillo does. It makes Jack its bitch. Tempranillo may be relatively new on the scene in Australia, but it's as widespread in Spain as Shiraz is in Australia. Rioja have strict regulations on wines classified by the region, and require the wine to be certain lengths of time in barrel and then in bottle, and allows the producer to classify based on these restrictions as: Joven (none to limited oak contact), Crianza (intermediate oak and bottle age) and Reserva (extended oak/bottle aging). The time spent in oak is generally judged based on fruit intensity, but the one thing you will find is that quality is pretty impressive across the board, from crunchy young Joven to luscious Crianza to blockbuster Reserva. Welcome to the vinous heartland of Spain. It smells and tastes amazing.
