Tasting Note:
This wine is ruby-red with glints of brick-red and a medium-high depth of colour. Dense
legs which provide you with a sequence of patterns around the sides of the glass.
Initially you can find notes of red fruit aromas such as blackberries and reminders of
spices. This is all well balanced by smoked aromas from its time in wood which had
received a light-to-medium toasting. A subtle vanilla pod aroma coming through with
roast coffee nuances. A smooth, mellow attack, with tannins wrapping the sides of the
mouth with hints of menthol. In the finish the interesting lingering persistence is worthy
of note.

2017 Vintage
Grape Variety: Tempranillo, Garnacha Tinta and Graciano.

Tasting Note:
The 2017 vintage was officially ranked as “Ver y Good” and was produced from vines
and grapes that remained in excellent health till the end of the harvest. This Crianza
displays an attractive, medium-deep, ruby-red colour with some brick-red glints. The
nose reveals delicious red and black fruit aromas, such as blueberries, plums and
forest fruit, together with notes of liquorice and chocolate. Medium-bodied on the
palate, the wine shows lovely balance with hints of roasted coffee beans, ripe fruit,
silky tannins and a lingering finish. This Crianza can be enjoyed now, but it also has
enough structure to be cellared for several years.

Additional Information

  • Description
  • The history of Bodegas Muga begins in 1932, when the estate was created by Isaac Muga Martínez and his wife, Auro Caño, both descendants of local winemaking families. The pair established themselves in the centre of Haro, a town at the west end of the Rioja Alta region. Isaac always intended to move nearer the railway station, some considerable distance outside of the town, positioning himself alongside the many venerable bodegas that are located there, such as La Rioja Alta and the Compañía Vinícola del Norte de España, but he never survived to see the move completed. He died in 1969, leaving the estate to his three children who oversaw Isaac's envisaged relocation, which included the construction of a new bodegas topped off with a tower. The cellars include not only the usual fermentation and ageing rooms, but also a coopery, providing the family with a constant supply of oak barrels, which are central to the Muga style.
