TASTING NOTES

This wine is ruby-red with glints of brick-red and a medium-high depth of colour. Dense legs which provide you with a sequence of patterns around the sides of the glass.
Initially you can find notes of red fruit aromas such as blackberries and reminders of spices. This is all well balanced by smoked aromas from its time in wood which had received a light-to-medium toasting. A subtle vanilla pod aroma coming through with roast coffee nuances.
A smooth, mellow attack, with tannins wrapping the sides of the mouth with hints of menthol. In the finish the interesting lingering persistence is worthy of note.

BLEND Tempranillo 70%, garnacha 20%, mazuelo and graciano 10%

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.
