Characteristics of Viña Muriel Reserva

Viña Muriel Reserva is a red wine from the D.O. Rioja made by Bodega Muriel.
This wine has been made with Tempranillo grapes from the region of Elciego. Most of the vineyard is grown in a traditional low-vine plantation system, in chalky, clay-rich soils, very poor in organic material.

The fermentation and maceration take place over the course of 15 days in stainless steel deposits. The daily pump-overs allow an optimum extraction of colour and tannins.

The wine ages for 24 months, with three rackings, in American and French oak barrels of 225 litre capacity. The wine then remains in the bottle for 2 years before going on sale.

Serve at 16ºC
Contains sulphites

Tasting notes Viña Muriel Reserva

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.
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.
2010 was considered the perfect vintage after some very good years. An optimal growth cycle, without incidents regarding the health of the vineyards. The harvest took place during a magnificent state of the vines and with a moderate production, with good fruit setting and slow ripening. A great year with excellent ageing potential, which resulted in spicy and fruity wines, with a very good structure and acidity.
Sight A burgundy colour. Medium-intensity, clean and bright. Nose A very complex and intense aroma, with perfectly blended aromas of very ripe fruit (plums and raisins) and very fine aromas from its ageing in French oak (spices, aromatic herbs, blond tobacco). Taste Powerful structure in the mouth with round tannins allowing this wine to age well. Will go perfectly with lamb cutlets, roasted lamb, fish in sauces and smoky and cured cheeses.

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.
