Product information

Description

70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 7% Mazuelo and 3% Graciano from chalky-clay soils, fermented in oak vats with indigenous yeasts. Ageing is for 24 months in oak casks selected from Muga's own cooperage, with a further year in bottle prior to release.  This is consistently one of the region’s best Reservas; never less than very good, I feel this 2015 offers something extra from this great harvest:. A bargain.
Blackberries, currants, cigar wrapper, cedar box, and hints of vanilla all flow to a medium-bodied, concentrated, beautiful Rioja that has ripe tannins, beautiful balance, and a great finish. You couldn't go wrong with a case of this. 94pts - Jeb Dunnuck.com 09/06/19

Bodegas Muga is that rare beast in Rioja; an estate both faithful to a heritage of great winemaking with a willingness to experiment and adapt to the modern age. It is perhaps why I have yet to meet anyone who has tried the wines that doesn't like at least something from their excellent range; fabulous quality across the board and great typicity amongst the styles. The emphasis of their world-famous Tinto Reserva is modern and approachable, but the wine has a definite sense of place and ages gracefully. Anyone who has ever drunk a glass or five over tapas becomes a fan for life.
