This wine has an intensely bright ruby color. On the nose, it is distinctive for its fruity aroma of crisp ripe cherry, black currant, blackberry and raspberry; it is delicately spicy with some laurel and tarragon, slightly ethereal, playful and complex. On the palate, the wine is full with plenty of structure, pronounced tannins, stimulating acidity and berry fruit. It is youthfully unsophisticated and elegantly rustic.

In so doing, they inherited a long tradition of wine-growing, which they nurtured in the spirit of a symbiosis of monastery, winery and estate that is still very much in evidence today. The result, in the 21st century, is a range of top-quality wines MURI-GRIES like the Abtei Muri line, which has been produced selected grapes the very best sites since 1989.
