Half Bottle: Muga Rioja Reserva 2019, Bodegas Muga
Bodegas Muga, Haro, Rioja Alta
The vineyards are located in the Oja and Tire river valleys of La Rioja Alta but the winery is based on the outskirts of Haro, the historical home of Rioja's most prestigious bodegas. Bodegas Muga was created in 1932 and over the years Muga wines have gained international recognition and acclaim.
Meticulously faithful to their tradtional wine-making methods, Muga use the classic Rioja grape mix - Tempranillo, Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano which are vinified in traditional Riojan oak vats and then matured for 24 months in small French and American oak barrels.
The wine has a bright cherry colour with a beautifully balanced contrast between oak and fruit on the nose. On the palate, the wine is rich, rounded and full bodied with lots of fruit combining with a gentle touch of oak.
