TASTING NOTES

This 2017 Reserva displays an attractive, medium-deep, ruby-red color with some brick-red glints. The nose reveals delicious red and black fruit aromas, such as blueberries, plums, and forest fruit, together with notes of licorice and chocolate. Medium-bodied on the palate, the wine shows lovely balance with hints of roasted coffee beans, ripe fruit, silky tannins, and a lingering finish. Bottled unfiltered.

James Suckling 94 Points 

FOOD PAIRING

You can pair this wine with veal, Iberian ham and charcuterie and some kinds of stews and hotpots.

VINIFICATION

Fermentation with indigenous yeasts in oak vats. Aged for 24 months in casks made in our cooperage from selected oak. Prior to bottling the wine is finned with fresh egg white. Once bottled it is left to undergo a rounding process for twelve months in our cellar, as a minimum.

About Bodegas Muga

Bodegas Muga is a family business founded by Isaac Muga and Aurora Caño in 1932, which is located in the historic Barrio de La Estación (Station Quarter) of Haro. With an area of around 25,000 square metres, it is home to both the most traditional winemaking methods and the latest cutting-edge techniques.

Wines that are born from inspiration and authenticity.

In Muga, we always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity.

To produce each of our wines, we continue opting for traditional procedures:

Through the natural process of fining, we eliminate the suspended particles that appear in the wine.

We carry out the decanting by the traditional method of gravity.
We are the only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers.
