Tasting

The Viña Eguía winery and vineyards were established in 1973 in Elciego and purchased by Bodegas Muriel in 2010. Sourced from old vines aged some 40 years on average, this elegant wine has expressive aromas of licorice in a ripe red fruit bouquet. Fine nuances of the aging; spices, vanilla, and Mediterranean herbs. This Rioja is smooth, elegant and velvety with a deep and pleasant finish. It’s tasting beautifully now. Aged 24 months in American oak casks. Pairs perfectly with Jamón Serrano, sausage pizza and slow roasted meats.

Winemaker

The Vina Eguia winery was established in 1973 in Elciego and purchased by Bodegas Muriel in 2010. Elciego is a historic village in the Rioja Alavesa, bordering the Spanish “Basque” region. In Basque “Eguia” means “truth”. The brand is symbolized by an open hand over the label, which is in the shape of an open book – analogous to putting one’s hand on a bible to swear to the truth of what one is saying.
