2016 Muga Reserva Seleccion Especial, Rioja MAGNUM - 150cl 14.0%

The original tasting note translates, roughly, as "cojones de perro". This is sumptuous stuff - complex, firm and concentrated. It is fermented in oak and then aged for up to 26 months in oak before bottling. Muga are masters of Rioja and always careful to ensure (correctly) that the oak enhances and enriches, but never dominates.

Rioja is the leading wine producing region in Spain and Bodegas Muga one of their most emblematic and prestigious wineries. It has been a family business ever since their creation in 1932. In their wines you find both tradition and modernity side by side. They are an exact reflection of very specific climatic and geographic features, and that's why they have such a pronounced personality. The double grape checking, both on selection belt and on tasting the musts, means that 50% of the harvest is excluded. Fermentation takes place with indigenous yeast in oak vats. The wines are aged in casks made from oak specially selected from their own cooperage. Meticulously faithful to their traditional wine making methods, Muga use French and American Oak vats and casks throughout the entire process yet their management of oak on their wines is wonderfully exact, correctly "seasoning" the wine and never dominating.
