Here's a little behind-the-vines look at the making of Bodegas Muga Reserva Rioja. Fermentation took place with indigenous yeast in oak vats. The wine was then aged for 24 months in casks made from selected oak from Budegas's own coopers’ workshop. Before bottling, the wine is fined using fresh egg whites. Once in the bottle it undergoes a minimum period of 12 months in-cellar to become rounded and polished.
Sharp notes of ripe fruit are overtaken by a red-berried fruit component, accompanied, at almost the same level, by a wide spectrum of white blossom descriptors. It has a fresh mouthfeel, almost giving the impression of having mentholated nuances, with a presence of acidic fruit liqueur. It can seem quite a strange combination. In the retronasal phase it is totally spicy and leaves new hints of liqueur fruit at a second level, but this time much more complex in character.
