Characteristics of Muriel Reserva Fincas de la Villa

Muriel Reserva is a red wine from La Rioja produced by Bodegas Muriel. This is a varietal Tempranillo, grapes typical of this area.

The grapes come from a vineyard located in Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Alta. The soils are calcareous and poor in organic matter. The land is mainly cultivated using the glass method.

Fermentation and maceration lasts 15 days in stainless steel. Pumping is performed daily which gives an excellent extraction of colour and tannins.

Muriel Reserva is subsequently aged for 24 months in American and French oak barrels of 225 litres. During this time three racking are carried out.

Ultimately, this red wine is aged in the bottle for two years before being marketed.

Founded in 1926, Bodegas Muriel seeks a balance between roots and innovation. This is one of the symbols of Elciego, a people of a great and respected winemaking tradition.

Tasting notes Muriel Reserva Fincas de la Villa

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.
Muriel Reserva 2014 is a complex, balanced and elegant red wine. This vintage shows a perfect harmony between the varietal aromas, the ripe red fruit, and the toasted notes from its ageing. In the mouth, it is expressive, with a good balance and a fairly long finish.
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.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight Classic ruby with rusty hues. Nose Intense and complex, highlights the delicate notes of aging. Hints of ripe fruit. Taste Good balance and great finesse, it is elegant. Long and pleasant aftertaste.
Sight A classic ruby red colour with terracotta tones. Nose A very complex and intense nose, with fine, perfectly blended aromas from its ageing: vanilla, spices and aromatic herbs. Nuances of very ripe fruit are noticed as well. Taste On the palate this wine is balanced and very refined, with elegant body and a very long and enjoyable aftertaste.

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.
