Muriel Crianza is a white wine from the D.O La Rioja produced by Bodegas Muriel. This is a monovarietal of Tempranillo, the grape of excellence from La Rioja.
Muriel Crianza originates from vines with an average age of 20 years old. The vines are planted at 400-700 meters above sea level and are cultivated using the goblet-pruning system, a traditional method.
The climate is Mediterranean but moderate thanks to the presence of Sierra de Cantabria and the presence of the Cantábrico Sea.
After the harvest, the grape for Muriel Crianza is fermented and macerated for 15 days in stainless steel containers. During this process there are daily pump overs to obtain a better extraction of colour.
Muriel Crianza ferments malolactically in containers and is racked twice before being aged for two months in 225 litre American barrels.
Before being bottles, Muriel Crianza is treated with egg white.
The wine group Bodegas Muriel, established in 1926, the date when José Murúa Villaverde started his first winery. Several generations later, today his son Julián Murúa and his son Javier run the business.
