Established in 1852, Murrieta is one of the oldest and most respected bodegas in Rioja Alta. In 2012, their vineyards were marked by drought and low yields, making that year's grapes concentrated and fruity. This well-balanced and elegant wine has aromas of dark fruits and is highly rated by top wine experts such as James Suckling and Tim Atkin. This Gran Reserva pairs perfectly with game, red meat, grilled fish and dishes with rich sauces.

4/5

Dark intense red brick colour with a mature aroma of mellow red and dark fruits with hint of spicy oak. Full bodied and generous fruit softening as it matures. Lovely finish full of spicy fruit as it starts to soften and mature.

We bought the bottle in the wine shop close to home.
Has a strong colour. Fantastic berry aromas. The taste was a bit salty, I was greatly surprised.
