Winemaker Notes

The Bodegas Muriel Reserva is a clear, ruby red color, with good intensity, boasts a perfect blend between intense fruit aromas, like strawberries and blueberries, and vanilla, balsamic scents and spices, due to fine oak maturation. The palate is round, velvety and mouthfilling, with a very long, satisfying finish.

Ideal all type of grilled and roasted meats. It also matches well with strong fish and all kind of cured cheeses. Or, with tasty with chocolate desserts and puddings.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Muriel Reserva was aged in French and American oak for 24 months followed by 2 years of bottle aging prior to release. Medium ruby red in color, it displays a similar but more complex bouquet than the Crianza. Nicely developed traditional Rioja aromas are followed by a medium-bodied, smooth-textured, dense wine with plenty of savory fruit, a firm underpinning, and plenty of length. It is likely to evolve for several years and is a good candidate to see its 20th birthday.

Bodegas Muriel, Spain
Bodegas Muriel Winery Video

Bodegas Muriel was founded in 1982, when Julian Murua revived his father's (Jose Murua) winery, which dates back to 1926 in the heart of the Rioja Alavesa (one of the three sub-regions that make up Spain's Rioja appellation). The cellars are in the quaint, historic village of Elciego, which is renowned for being surrounded by some of the best "terrior" in Rioja.

The name "Muriel" comes from the combination of the family name (Murua) and the name of the town itself (Elciego). Today, Julian and his son Javier run the winery with the mission to meld the long-held winemaking traditions of the region with new technologies and techniques in order to make wines that express the "best qualities" of the grapes coming from these fertile Riojan vineyards.

Tempranillo

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
