From a bodega run by the illustrious Muriel group, this wine comes from vineyards in Rioja’s Alta and Alavesa sub-regions. The traditional Crianza maturation sees this wine spending 12 months in American oak barrels and a further 12 months in bottle before release. Vivid cherry red in colour. The aromas show off the wine’s oak ageing, with vanilla, coconut and balsamic notes coming to the fore. An elegant palate of ripe fruit framed by soft, polished tannins. The definitive accompaniment to tapas, especially those of red meat or cured cheeses.
