Rioja producer Marqués de Cáceres has released its latest edition of Generación MC from the 2016 vintage, unveiling the new label design at wine and flamenco festival SIMOF.

Launched at the end of 2018, the new limited-edition wine is made from the 2016 vintage. Generación MC is only made in the best vintages and every year, a bottle is presented at the Salon Internacional de la Moda Flamenca (SIMOF).

For each vintage, the producer commissions a special label, with the this year’s example unveiled at SIMOF 2019 designed by Virginia Vargas, a flamenco fashion expert.

It is inspired by “the distinct and outstanding personality of the designer Aurora Gaviño”, who is depicted on the label. Fashion designer Gaviño is also the founder of SIMOF and presents a her new collection of designs every year at the show.

Th 2016 edition of Generación MC is made with 100% Tempranillo from vines that are between 65 and 90 years old. The grapes are hand-harvested in 15kg boxes and undergo a slow fermentation of between 10 and 12 days with a proportion of whole bunches. The wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 15 months before being aged in bottle for six months before release.

A total of 15,957 bottles were produced from 55 new French oak barrels.

According to Marqués de Cáceres: “Generación MC Limited Edition by Aurora Gaviño reveals the perfect harmony between the beauty of flamenco fashion and the exquisite character of a wine that expresses with aplomb elegance, balance, fullness, intense colour and brio.”

“This unique wine captures the efforts and the passion of the bodega’s oenologists who meticulously handcraft a few small parcels of old vines with creativity and innovative inspiration so as to extract their very essence. The result is their interpretation of a younger more modern style in this superb wine of profound, human roots.”
