Rioja Alavesa, Spain
Brilliantly fresh and fruity, yes Rioja can do this style! Grapefruit and Apricot flavours.
Located in the town of Elciego in the heart of the Alavesa subregion, Bodegas Muriel has a winemaking tradition harking all the way back to 1926.
The grapes are selected from poor calcereous soils in Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Alta. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature of 16C to maintain maximum aromatic freshness.
Clean and bright, pale yellow in colour, presenting green hues. Floral and fruity notes on the nose, of green apples, citrus and stone fruit. Balanced acidity with a long finish.
