A single vineyard, extended bottle aged Rioja Reserva. French oak brings cedar, smoke and dried fruit character.
Viña Muriel Rioja Reserva Tinto has a beautiful, medium intensity, burgundy colour and bright highlights. An expertly crafted Tempranillo, it features a complex and intense aroma with notes of ripe black fruit and French oak aging scents of cedar. There is a powerful structure with rounded tannins making this a highly drinkable, and yet age-worthy wine.
Smooth and elegant, showcasing the great potential of Tempranillo for ageing. The plummy fruit leads to delicate yet intense complex notes of spices, aromatic herbs and tobacco. It pairs especially well with roast lamb, chops with vine shoots, fish in sauce and smoked and cured cheeses.
