The Marqués de Griñón, know as an innovative person in the Spanish viticulture since the 1970s produces traditional Riojas adapted to the 21st century.
This 100% tempranillo is a traditional cherry-coloured wine, with a perfectly balanced aroma between ripe red fruits and oak, taste of blueberry and vanilla.
The Marquis de Griñón began in Rioja 20 years ago developing a Tempranillo varietal monkey 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 “Selección Especial”, 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.
Preparation and Usage
Selection of the best grapes from the vineyard, 100% destemmed and then fermented with a hat of floating marc at a maximum temperature of 28º. Once this is finished, the wine is kept in contact with the skins to obtain the structure and tannins necessary for subsequent refinement for 18 months in American oak barrels.
Contains Sulphites E-220
Round wine, very balanced, intense ruby red. Very tasty, with a predominance of vanilla notes that guarantee its upbringing

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.
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.
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
