“The historical expression of Rioja´s Sonsierra”
Today we launch the new vintage of Murmurón! This vintage will most likely be certified as excellent by the D.O.C. Rioja appelation.
Sierra Cantabria launches to the market the new vintage of “Murmurón 2020”, a very special wine from the Eguren Family due to it´s traditional heritage and emotional bond with the emblematic Sonsierra in Rioja.
Murmurón first reached the market in 1980. It´s a modern young red with deep roots in tradition. A wine with a mineral and floral character with fine vinosity due to the carbonic maceration and freshness reinforced by the pinch of sparkle that is a hallmark from this type of wine.
Five generations of winegrowers, with roots in San Vicente de la Sonsierra, have woven a long history of mutual understanding between man and vine, to extract the virtues of the unique varieties: Tempranillo, in D.O.Ca. Rioja and the Tinta de Toro in D.O. Toro applying all of the necessary efforts to capture the expressiveness in exceptional wines with the utmost purity, rooted to the terroir.
Marcos Eguren, at the head of the winegrowing side of the business, and Miguel Eguren, who manages as the President of the Group, are leading a project to search for wines that evoke the vineyard, with a lot of versatility and personality. Guillermo, father of the current generation that now holds the reins of the winery group, considers himself above all to be a collector of vineyards. And that is the message received by his sons, who have done an excellent job at looking after the vineyards, showing maximum respect for the fruit in the winery, with their philosophy for obtaining wines that have become modern day classics: wines that stand the test of time, that combine fruit, potency and structure with elegance, freshness and subtlety.
