Characteristics of Muga Selección Especial Reserva

Muga Selección Especial Reserva is a great red wine. A classic from D.O. Rioja. It is made by Bodegas Muga in Haro, one of the towns with the highest concentration of wineries in the world.

Muga Selección Especial Reserva is a coupage of Tempranillo (70%), Grenache (20%), Mazuelo (7%) and Graciano (3%). The grapes are grown on estates with mostly clayey-calcerous soils that are situated in the Rioja Alta area, on the foothills of the Obarense mountains. Due to its geography and location it has a particular variety of climates between the Mediterranean, Atlantic and Continental, which gives the grapes a long and complex ripening.

On their arrival at the winery, the grapes undergo a selection process, discarding the bunches that do not reach the necessary quality standards.

The fermentation takes place in oak deposits with local yeast from their own vineyard. Muga Selección Especial Reserva undergoes a 26 month aging in oak barrels. A barrel so special, that Bodegas Muga is already one of the few wineries left today to continue with their own cooperage in their facilities and continue to make barrels.

After the aging there is a clarification with fresh eggs before it is bottled. Once bottled, Muga Selección Especial Reserva undergoes a fining process of 12 months in the bottle before it is released onto the market.

Tasting notes Muga Selección Especial Reserva

A good balance and few climate incidents define this vintage. The autumn began with mild temperatures and lack of rain. In March began the rain,as well as the development of the vines. At the beginning of the growth cycle of the vines, temperatures decrease and there were a lot of rainy days. This caused an irregular growth of the vineyard. After an unstable month of May, the temperatures increased, and a cycle without rains began. This resulted in perfect sprouts and a good flowering. The summer months were warm and with some heat waves, which caused a slower growth cycle and some symptoms of water stress, and thus a concentration of fruit. At the end of September, and before the harvest, there was some rain that was perfect for a great year thanks to the perfect ripening of the grapes. Good acidity and concentration define the wines from this vintage. Fine wines with a great ageing potential.
An excellent vintage in Rioja. With a mild autumn, and a cold and rainy winter, the growth season began with enough resources for the perfect development of the vines. During this period, there were no pests and diseases until the end of the growth cycle. During the harvest, there were no significant rains, so the health and ripening of the grapes were excellent. A great year with great aged wines that can be stored for a long time. Perfect balance between the most amiable tannins and the good acidity, which give these wines an extraordinary length.
Sight High-robe, dense and uniformed with beautiful violet tones. Nose Complex and elegant on the nose. We can encounter mature red fruit notes with countryside memories and certain mineral touches. Taste On the palate it is very pleasant and elegant. Sweet and likeable tannins. Good acidity. High fruit presence and certain mineral notes.
Sight Intense and bright ruby red colour with maroon edges. A wine which shows a high robe and dense slow-falling tears. Nose Highly intense, complex and elegant nose. Its fragrant, suggestive and expressive aromas of ripe red fruit stand out along with a wide range of sweet and hot spices. When it opens up, some smoky notes, intense toasted hints and animal reminiscences are noticed. Taste An elegant long wine. It shows an embracing and warm attack and a tasty, silky and aromatic mid palate. A balanced wine with very well balanced tannins and a refreshing and integrated acidity. Long and very persistent finish with a nice spicy and balsamic after-taste.  An elegant and seductive, round wine.

Sight Intense, bright cherry red colour with garnet trims. High robe and dense tears. Nose Suggestive and elegant aromas. Quite closed at the beginning, but when it opens up it shows very elegant toasted notes and a good presence of red and black fruits. Milky and cocoa notes. Taste This Muga Reserva Selección Especial is a warm, dense and broad wine. It has a good mid palate, characterized by its smoothness and elegance. The notes of fruit and good quality wood are well assembled. Good presence of tannins. Long and very persistent wine. A round Rioja.
Sight To the eye, shades of purple and garnet. Nose Initial aromas of pastries, so characteristic of wines with barrel, backed by soft toast from the barrel, wrapped in a background of currant and blackberry fruit. Taste

The warm, friendly, syrupy mouth-feel leaves a sensation of fullness and a persistent aftertaste, characterized by the finesse of its tannins and a complex mineral component.

This has allowed them to maintain the unique character and personality of their wines. In addition, it is one of the few wineries in La Rioja that uses oak wood from its own cooperage in all the stages of the production and the ageing processes. An exemplary winery, and one of the most prestigious ones in La Rioja. Since the very beginning, harvest after harvest, it makes wine with the family seal: “Muga style”.
