STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Bodegas Muga are one of the leading lights in Rioja. The majority of their vineyard holdings are located in Rioja Alta, a relatively high altitude location which is heavily influenced by it's proximity to the Atlantic. This brings a freshness and vitality to the resultant wines. Established in the 1930's Muga are one of the great success stories of Spanish wine. Their output is formidable with zero compromise on quality.
The wine feels young 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.
