4 /5

Muga - Seleccion Especial (Reserva) 2016 is a medium-deep, dense garnet/black cherry colour. The nose is complex with ripe, red berry and black fruit coming to the fore with hints of black pepper and subtle, creamy, smoky oak, followed by notes of coffee and a touch of mint. The entry on the palate is smooth and elegant and develops with good volume towards an elegant, harmonious mid-palate revealing fresh, ripe red berry fruits and spice. The whole is underpinned by a powerful tannic structure and fresh acidity.

Muga always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity. To produce each of their wines, they opt for traditional procedures like natural fining. The only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers, Bodegas Muga owns 620 acres of vineyards but it also has control over 370 acres owned by vine growers in the area. The vineyards are located on the foot of the Montes Obarenses, within the area called Rioja Alta. The site climate is exceptional due to, on the one hand, the singular geography and orientation of the vines and on the other hand, the surrounding climates - Mediterranean, Atlantic and Continental climates are combined harmoniously thus creating a perfect climate for grape growing.

Food matches: This wine pairs well with red meats, lamb and charcoal-grilled rockfish.

4 /5

- NOTA DE CATA: Encontramos una capa alta y uniforme con irisaciones púrpura muy en el menisco de la copa.
En nasal encontramos aromas que te incitan a pensar en frutillos rojos salvajes, aún no recogidos pero ya maduros, notas crecientes de olores de campo y sensaciones minerales.
Las sensaciones en boca suponen una continuación aumentada, con mayores evidencias de la uva tempranillo que se convierte en la perfecta pareja de baile de la garnacha. Fruta casi masticable, tanino dulce y sedoso, acidez amable y buena presencia de notas minerales.
- GRADO ALCOHÓLICO: 14º
- TEMPERATURA DE SERVICIO: 18ºC
- MARIDAJE: Carnes blancas, Cerdo asado, Cordero asado, Civet, Asados, Caza de pluma, Caza de pelo
