Product Description
Details

The wine Tierras de Murillo Crianza is a single varietal Tempranillo wine made from over 60-year-old vines located in La Rioja.

Produced by Bodegas San Esteban, the first cooperative winery in Rioja, this Spanish red wine is made from grapes harvested at their optimal ripening point.

Then the grapes were destemmed, cold-soaked and fermented in stainless steel tanks with periodic pump-overs and punch-downs.

The red wine Tierras de Murillo Crianza 2017 was then aged for 12 months in 85% American and 15% French oak barrels, new and used, and finally aged for a further months in the cellar prior to its commercial release.
