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 96 points- The most classic cuvee was not produced in 2007 or 2008, so we jumped to the phenomenal 2009 Prado Enea. It was produced with grapes from cooler vineyards that enjoyed 20 extra days of slow ripening compared with warmer zones, which provided them with perfect ripeness and deep flavors. This blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha and the remaining 10% between Mazuelo and Graciano had an extended elevage, in this case no less than three years (alternating newer and older barrels). This is still a baby and I know Winemaker Jorge Muga would like to keep it in bottle for longer before selling it, but the commercial pressure is tremendous, as there has been no wine since 2006. The wine has 14.1% alcohol and a surprising 3.34 pH, especially considering 2009 was generally a warm and ripe year. But somehow this cuvee seems to work very well in ripe vintages. The wine feels even younger on the palate, and it still needs to develop some further complexity and the silky texture for which this wine is famous. There is good balance here and all the elements are in place for a nice development in bottle. In fact, it feels like one of the great recent vintages of Prado Enea. There will be no Prado Enea in 2012 and 2013 either, but it's produced in 2010, 2014 (small quantities) and 2015. At this quality level, the price seems like a real bargain. 90,000 bottles produced in 2009..Luis Gutierrez, August/2016

James Suckling 96 points- This shows the ripeness and intensity of the vintage with truffles and hints of tea. Full body, layered and beautiful. Flavorful finish. Drink now or hold..September/2017
