Intense, deep and complex aromas of ripe red fruits, combined with barrel-aged aromas of coffee, vanilla and baking spice. The palate is balanced and elegant with a high level of freshness and a long, pleasant finish. From selected vineyards in several areas in Elciego (Rioja Alavesa). The climate is Continental Mediterranean, with a strong Atlantic influence. After an early April frost, the vineyard benefitted from a hot, dry summer and yielded a high-quality harvest – defined by the Rioja Regulatory Council as Very Good. Organically-poor clay/limestone soils, with vines that average 25 years old.

In 1926, Bodegas Murua was founded by José Murua in Rioja Alavesa, one of the three sub-regions of Rioja. Determined to follow in his father’s footsteps, Julián Murua Entrena began his own wine journey specializing in the art of blending, eventually establishing Bodegas Muriel in 1982. Bodegas Muriel excels at producing elegant and complex Reserva-designated Riojas. The name “Muriel” is a blending that comes from the owners’ last name, Murua, the region of Rioja and the town of Elciego. Julián and his son Javier now run the winery with a mission to meld the long-held winemaking traditions of the region with the new technologies of today.

Bodegas Muriel has the great fortune of residing in the town of Elciego, known for some of the best terroir in the region producing spectacular, complex wines. The vineyards are comprised of clay-chalk soils whose roots reach deep into the earth. The vines are also planted on terraced vineyards, which allow drainage and the prevention of erosion. The climate is a blend of Mediterranean with continental and maritime influences, creating ideal ripening conditions. The vines produce aromatic and elegant wines that are age-worthy.
