About Murua Reserva

Murua Reserva is a wine from the D.O. La Rioja produced by Bodegas Murua. This wine is made using 3 different grape varieties: Tempranillo (93%), with small quantities of Graciano (5%) and Mazuelo (2%).

The grapes used to make this wine come from the winery´s own estate, which is divided accross eight different plots.

Once the harvest has been carried out, the grapes undergo controlled alcoholic fermentation followed by maceration. Then, after maloactic fermentation, the must is decanted into french oak vats.

The wine is then aged for 18months in French and American oak barrels that are a maximum of 3 years old. Finally, the wine is aged in the bottle for 18months in order to reach optimum quality.

Bodegas Murua is owned by the Masaveu family. Their heritage in winemaking dates back to Federico Masaveu Ripoll, who in the nineteenth century who built his own winery in Castellar del Vallés.A century later, in 1974, the Masaveu family expanded on this by buying Bodegas Murua in Elciego, a town forever linked to wine.
