Vina Eguia Rioja 2019
The Vina Eguia winery and vineyards were established in 1973 in Elciego and purchased by Bodegas Muriel in 2010. Elciego is a historic village in the Rioja Alavesa, which borders the Spanish “Basque” region, and the language spoken there often includes Basque words, such as “Eguia” which means “truth”. The brand is symbolized by an open hand over the label, which is in the shape of an open book – analogous to putting one’s hand on a bible to swear to the truth of what one is saying.
“Quite sweet and rich with earthly
notes and a hint of dried figs. A rich and tannic wine with good
harmony, though there could be more depth or freshness at the finish. Drink now.”
