RATINGS: 90pts Wine Advocate

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.

TASTING NOTES: Wine Advocate 90 points- The white 2015 Muga Blanco Fermentado en Barrica mixes the classic white Rioja grapes, mostly Viura with some Malvasia Riojana and small percentages of diverse varieties, including the newer Tempranillo Blanco, Garnacha Blanca, Maturana Blanca, Turruntes... It fermented in new 225 liter oak barrels where it was kept in contact with the fine lees from October to February. It has a ripe nose of yellow fruit, sourced from a healthy vintage that produced powerful wines. This wine relies on malic acid to provide freshness and it's a little lower in this year; however, it feels quite lively and does not feel warm at all. In the future, Garnacha Blanca is going to play more of an important role in this blend. Very drinkable and pleasant. 140,000 bottles produced..Luis Gutierrez, August/2016
