Muga Rioja Blanco
In Muga, they always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity. To produce each of their wines, they continue opting for traditional procedures:Through the natural process of fining, they eliminate the suspended particles that appear in the wine.They carry out the decanting by the traditional method of gravity. They are also the only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers.
After macerating in the press for around 8 hours, this white wine ferments in new, French oak casks. After fermentation it is left on its lees for a further 3 months until ready for bottling.
A lemon-yellow coloured wine with green glints which reveal its youth. On the nose we find a clean, floral wine which is reminiscent of almond blossom, with citrus notes of American lime and faint underlying toasted nuances. On the palate the wine is fresh with very good acidity and a long finish, wrapping the mouth with reminders of white-fleshed Golden Delicious apples. Perfect match for vegetable dishes, rice, fish and shellfish, tapas.
Muga Rioja Reserva
A wine with medium-full depth of colour, black-cherry red with garnet hues. Dense legs which give us a wrapping sequence in the glass.
First, red-fruit notes, then blackberries appear, with reminders of fennel, scrubby heathland, all nicely balanced by the smoked aromas from the time spent in medium-toasted wood. Underlying hints of vanilla pod coming through with coffee notes.
Full mouth-feel with slightly mentholated nuances and white chocolate. The vanilla reappears and those red-berry fruit aromas we found on the nose persist, with an elegant acidity which makes the aftertaste long.
Food pairing with veal, Iberian pork charcuterie and some types of casseroles (stew).
