Bodegas Muga Reserva Rioja Red Blend Tempranillo Garnacha Mazuelo
$291.54 / case(12)
Soil terraces of chalky-clay tertiary period soil. Fermentation fermentation with indigenous yeast in oak vats. Aged for 24 months in casks made from selected oak from our own coopers’ workshop. Before bottling the wine is fined using fresh egg whites. Once in the bottle it undergoes a minimum period of twelve months in our cellar to become rounded and polished. Tasting notes we find slightly lower colour intensity with a more marked cherry-red component than in other vintages with perfect transition to the heart of the glass. The biggest influence of the vintage can be found in the aromatic profile. For the first time in many years the sharp notes of ripe fruit are overtaken by a red-berried fruit component accompanied at almost the same level by a wide spectrum of white blossom descriptors. It has a fresh mouth-feel almost giving the impression of having mentholated nuances with a presence of acidic fruit liqueur. It can seem quite a strange combination. In the retronasal phase it is totally spicy and leaves new hints of liqueur fruit at a second level but this time much more complex in character. – bodegas muga
