Characteristics of Muga Crianza

Muga Crianza is a red wine from Rioja, made by Bodegas Muga. This winery has a winemaking tradition of over 80 years in Haro (La Rioja Alta), the city with the highest concentration of wineries in the world.

Muga Rioja Crianza is a true blend made with 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, Mazuelo 7% and 3% of Graciano, all typical varieties of Rioja.

The grapes come from vines planted in terraces on tertiary calcareous clay.

For its preparation, Muga Crianza undergoes fermentation with indigenous yeast in oak tanks. Subsequently it is aged for 24 months in barrels made in the winery itself.

Finally, before bottling, Muga Crianza is clarified with natural egg and once bottled, rests for 12 months.

Alcohol: 14.0%

Leather with fine floral notes, lightly toasted flavours and spices appear. Black pepper, cloves, cocoa, toast. Taste Tasty entry into the mouth. Predominant ripe fruit with memories of aging. Vanilla and cream. Fleshy, broad, balanced and structured. With excellent acidity and gentle tannins. Aftertaste is long and very persistent.
Sight Dark and intense cherry colour with ruby red edges and purple reflections. Clean and very bright. It has a medium robe and abundant tears. Nose High intensity nasal aromas, dominated by intense notes of ripe red and black fruit that gives way to aromatic floral notes and some emerging toasted aromas. When it opens up, the wine gains in complexity and the notes of fruit get mixed with nice spicy touches, more expressive toasted notes, balsamic touches and hints of leather, coffee and cacao. Taste This red wine shows a long, tasty and fleshy mid palate with dominant notes of ripe fruit on an intense background of notes provided during the ageing wrapped in creamy aromas of vanilla. A balanced and structured wine. Excellent acidity and very pleasant and integrated tannins. Long and very persistent finish.

A balanced and structured wine. Excellent acidity and very pleasant and integrated tannins. Long and very persistent finish.
Sight Intense cherry colour with maroon edges. Very bright wine with good tears. Nose Elegant and intense aromas. The toasted and roasted notes gain power on first nosing, over the aromas of ripe red and black fruit. When it opens up, the aromas are balanced and some spicy, liquorice, leather, mocha and chocolate notes are also felt along with subtle balsamic and mineral touches. Taste Very strong and voluminous attack and a tasty, nice, meaty and fresh mid palate. The notes of fruit dominate on the wooden aromas since the notes of juicy and ripe black fruit are more powerful. Noble and well integrated tannins are also felt and although they are not unpleasant they still need to round out a little more. Long and persistent finish which leaves fruity and spicy sensations. Very fine, elegant and balanced wine from La Rioja.
Sight Very bright, pure ruby colour. Nose Red-berry aromas which evolve towards toasted, charred-oak and coffee nuances. Taste Balanced on the palate. A deep, intense, flavoursome wine. The fruit, previously pure finesse, now becomes potent. An elegant, persistent finish.

    The Muga family is part of the history of wine of the Haro and Rioja regions. They were first wine traders and then they set up their own winery and started producing their own wines. Their name is now known in more than 50 different countries throughout the world through their wines.
    Their experience and artisanal production bring an outstanding quality to their wines.


    HISTORY OF THE WINERY 

    It all started in 1932 when the couple Isaac Muga and Aurora Cano decided to open a little wine distribution family business in the centre of Haro, in the heart of the Rioja Alta.

    In 1968 the little family owned wine shop became a winery, settling in a beautiful 19th century mansion in the Estación de Haro area, now the region with the highest concentration of wineries in the world, where they started to produce their first wines.

    Towards the end of the 80s, Bodegas Muga decided to start producing more current wines, with the idea of trying to export their wines on the international market.
    Thus, at the start of the 90s, the two greatest successes of the winery were born: the Torre Muga and the Prado Enea.

    Today Bodegas Muga exports much of its produce, especially to the United States, where it has always been very well received by both consumers and critics.


    WORK PHILOSOPHY 

    Bodegas Muga have 200 hectares of vineyards at the foothills of the Obarense mountains, where they harvest Tempranillo, Grenache, Mazuelo and Graciano red grape varieties and Viura and Malvasia white grape varieties. They also control another 150 hectares of farms in the region.

    The orientation and location of the vineyards are situated at a crossing-point between Mediterranean, Atlantic and Continental climates, resulting in a perfect climate and environment for grape growing.
    The soils are mostly marl, although ferrous clay soils and alluvial soils are also found. These soils are equipped with a special quality specific to the region.
    This mix of climates and soil characteristics make the ripening of the grape long and delicate.

    The grapes are arranged for different productions, passing through sorting tables by hand to insure quality. The method of work at the winery has changed very little from generation to generation. The grapes ferment in oak vats, make the grapes into wine individually depending on their quality and vineyard of origin.

    Aging is done in French and American oak barrels, and to a lesser extent Spanish and Central-European oak barrels. Bodegas Muga has its own coopery, one of the few Spanish wineries that still produce their own barrels. Every 4 months a racking is done by gravity, without moving the barrel and by candlelight in order to see the clarity of the wine better.

    The wine is clarified with fresh egg whites, and once bottled remains in the winery for at least 9 months for the vintages and 36 for the Prado Enea Gran Reserva.


    MUGA WINERY WINES

    Bodegas Muga offers a wide range of wines that in terms of reds range from Muga Crianza, the baby of the family, to the prestigious Torre Muga, and Muga Prado Enea Gran Reserva, which has has been very successful internationally.

    Besides the reds, the two jewels of the house must be mentioned: Muga Blanco and Muga Rosado. A white and a rosé that have spent time in barrels and turn out to be truly amazing.
