Tasting notes Muga Blanco

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with scarce rainfall, spring started with a lot of rain, which favoured the growth cycle of the vine. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in great, healthy vines. As a general result, this was a balanced year, where the final absence of rains led to a good concentration of grapes. This year is defined by a voluminous vintage that can be enjoyed from its youth.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Qa Rioja, high temperatures in spring and summer market his year, as well as the absence of rain at the most dangerous times for the vineyard. These factors led to very healthy vines, but the harvest was brought forward three weeks on average. As a result, this year was rated as a very good one in the area, with the only drawback of not reaching full ripeness. Therefore, the wines from this vintage are those typical from Rioja, with a slightly higher alcoholic strength and a good balance between acidity and ripening.

Taste The entry is very expressive with fruit and a presence of wood. A silky smooth passage. The final taste is pleasant and persistent.
