Aclassic Rioja that is only produced in superior vintages.
Ideal all type of grilled and roasted meats. It also pairs well withstrong fish and all kind of cured cheeses. Tasty with chocolatedesserts and puddings.
This Gran Reserva comes from Bodegas Muriel, an excellent producer located in the town of Elciego in the heart of the Rioja-Alavesa sub region. This relatively recently founded estate offers superb value and a classic style of mature Rioja. An aromatic explosion of vanilla and spices from the oak blends with mature fruit character and evidence of extended bottle ageing the form of leather and tobacco leaves.
