Murrieta Ygay Gran Reserva Especial Rioja


Castillo Ygay is always made from grapes sourced from La Plana, a 40-hectare (98-acre) vineyard, planted in 1950 and located at 485 meters altitude, the highest area of Ygay Estate; the 300-hectare estate surrounding the winery in Rioja Alta.

The tempranillo is aged for 28 months in 225-litre American oak barrels and themazuelo is aged for 28 months in 225-litre French oak barrels. After blending, the wine remains 13 months in a concrete tank until bottling.

An endless and complex range of aromas define this Castillo Ygay 2011 that evokes fragances ofcripe cherry, blueberry and cassis with refined hints of garrigue, Mediterranean herbs, black pepper, clove and mocha. Balance defines this wine vintage after vintage; lively on the palate yet enveloping and harmonious. With silky tannins and a long, elegant finish. “After an unforgettable 2010 vintage, Castillo Ygay once again shows the amazing potential of La Plana single vineyard” María Vargas – Technical Manager.
