Bodegas Muriel was founded in 1982, when Julian Murua Entrena revived his father's, Jose Murua's winery (which dates back to 1926) located in the Rioja Alavesa – one of the three subregions of the Rioja appellation. The cellars are in the historic village of Elciego, surrounded by some of the finest terroir in Rioja. Julian and his son combine traditional and modern winemaking techniques to coax the best out of their vines. All Bodegas Muriel wines are 100% Tempranillo. The macroclimate of the region, influenced by the Mediterranean, Continental and Atlantic, helps the vines produce very aromatic and elegant wines. The name Muriel comes from the combination of the family name, Murua, and the name of the town itself, Elciego. Classic ruby red with hints of a light brick red colour. Very complex and intense aroma, with fine scents of aging which are assembled perfectly: vanilla, spices and herbs. Very ripe fruit recollections appear. In the palate, it is a finely balanced wine, with a polished and elegant body, with a long and pleasant aftertaste. Matches especially well with roasted lamb, cutlets barbequed on vine shoots, fish in sauce recipes, as well as smoked and cured cheese. Excellent wine to accompany chocolate desserts.
