Traditional Rioja, lightly oaked, fresh and quite elegant. 90% Viura and 10% Malvasia.
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.
