Characteristics of Murua Blanco Fermentado en Barrica

Murua Blanco Fermentado en Barrica is a white wine from La Rioja produced by the Murua winery. This wine is a blend of native varieties: ViuraMalvasía and Garnacha Blanca.

The strains are between 40 and 80 years old and are cultivated traditionally, as they have been for decades. The vineyards are situated in the town of Elciego, a town with a great wine-making tradition. Murua Blanco Fermentado en Barrica’s production starts with a period of fermentation in new American and French oak barrels, and after undergoing the different production processes, the wine ages with its lees for around seven months in the same barrels.

Murua was founded in 1974 and boasts 110 hectares of vineyards, spread between the town of Elciego and other neighbouring towns. The winery only works with native varieties and with very low yields, which allows each grape to express the quality of its native land with complete loyalty.

Tasting notes Murua Blanco Fermentado en Barrica

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.
