Characteristics of Muriel Crianza Fincas de la Villa

Muriel Crianza Fincas de la Villa is a white wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by Bodegas Muriel. This is a monovarietal of Tempranillo, the grape of excellence from La Rioja.

Muriel Crianza Fincas de la Villa originates from vines with an average age of 20 years old. The vines are planted at 400-700 meters above sea level and are cultivated using the goblet-pruning system, a traditional method.

The climate is Mediterranean but moderate thanks to the presence of Sierra de Cantabria and the presence of the Cantábrico Sea.

After the harvest, the grape for Muriel Crianza Fincas de la Villa is fermented and macerated for 15 days in stainless steel containers. During this process there are daily pump overs to obtain a better extraction of colour.

Muriel Crianza Fincas de la Villa ferments malolactically in containers and is racked twice before being aged for twelve months in 225 litre American barrels.

Before being bottles, Muriel Crianza Fincas de la Villa is treated with egg white.

The wine group Bodegas Muriel, established in 1926, the date when José Murúa Villaverde started his first winery. Several generations later, today his son Julián Murúa and his son Javier run the business.

Tasting notes Muriel Crianza Fincas de la Villa

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
This vintage was marked by a very rainy and cold spring just at the time of the growth cycle. This fact caused it to ripen unevenly and with a certain delay. Thanks to a fairly dry September and October, the grapes that ripened with a certain delay were harvested in a selective manner. A complicated vintage, but with good results since there was an exhaustive selection of the grapes. A good balance between concentration and acidity in their youth define the wines from this vintage.

Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

Bodegas Muriel was founded in 1926 by José Murúa Villaverde in Elciego, one of the most famous and appreciated hubs of the Rioja Alavesa.
The balance between the past and the future defines the character of Bodegas Muriel, a winery that opts to connect history with a focus on the present.
In 1986, Julián Murúa decided to continue the work started by his father. He revived the family winery under the Muriel name, which combines his surname (Murúa) with the winery's place of origin, Elciego. Thus, began the second chapter of this exciting project. The winery currently possesses the experience and vision of its managers, Julián Murúa and his son, Javier Murúa.
