Characteristics of Torre Muga

Torre Muga is the jewel of La Rioja. This wine is balanced and full, a great representation of the artisan work and experience of Bodegas Muga.
This wine is a blend of 75% Tempranillo, 15% Mazuelo, and 10% Graciano grape varieties from plantations South-West orientated on the foothills of the Obarene Mountains, in the heart of Rioja Alta.
The distinctive climate of the region, the marl soils and the old vines are the fundamental features for a wine of such high quality.
Fermentation is always natural and spontaneous taking place in wooden vats, without any temperature controls. It then spends 18 months in new French oak barrels and 6 months more in wooden vats.
Before bottling it is clarified with fresh egg whites.

Serve at 16.0ºC
Contains sulphites
We recommend decanting before consumption
Pairing
Grilled red meats, Lamb stew, Iberian ham, Game animals, Beef

Tasting notes Torre Muga

High summer temperatures define this vintage. After a mild winter with very little rainfall, spring began with a great deal of rain, which provided favourable conditions for the growth cycle of the vines. During the summer, they experienced very high temperatures and the absence of rain, which resulted in very 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 noted for a vintage with volume that can be enjoyed as a young wine.
After a winter with normal temperatures and rainfall for D.O.Ca 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.
It was a fairly balanced year until the harvest season arrived. The beginning of the cycle, in October, started with high temperatures, and it was not until mid-November that the first frosts began and the leaves of the vines began to fall to prepare for winter. Throughout the winter, rainfall was generous and water reserves could be secured for the growth cycle period. During the months of March and April, there was an increase in temperatures that led to the good sprouting of the plant. The growth cycle of the vines was suitable, and the sudden rise of temperatures resulted in quite a fast blooming. There was an optimal growth of the fruit, until the harvest season, when rains damaged the state of the grapes and caused a drop in production. This is a good vintage, but the last rains damaged the final result. The wines are good and can be drunk in the short- and mid-term, they have a medium body and material.
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 Clean and bright maroon colour with bluish reflections. Nose It is a complex wine with aromas of sweet red and black fruit, spicy notes of clove, black pepper and mellow vanilla hints. Once the wine is aerated, the balsamic and toasted aromas are noticed along with hints of undergrowth. Taste Initially, this wine has a mellow expression, but its acidity keeps it lively all over the palate. It is a powerful and balanced wine with noticeable but quite polished tannins.

Sight Intense, dark and almost opaque maroon cherry colour with scarlet edges. High layer and dense tears. Nose Elegant, complex and well balanced wine with a high aromatic intensity. Its abundant notes of very ripe stewed fruit is released on an intense and wide range of sweet, hot and creamy spices. Seductive hints of cocoa, coffee, tobacco and some leather are also noticed along with elegant toasted aromas and fresh balsamic nuances. Taste Concentrated, complex, elegant, intense and flavourful Spanish wine. It shows a very nice, wide and embracing attack. The notes of fruit noticed in the nose are felt again wrapped in creamy, spicy and toasted aromas on a balsamic background. Balanced acidity and elegant tannins. Very long and persistent finish with very balanced pleasant sensations.
Sight Garnet colour with good robe and slight brick-red hues around the edge Nose On the nose, aromas of spices and chocolate, wrapped up in fruit which is almost like a liqueur. Taste A powerful attack, balanced and yet syrupy smooth. Very long and honest aftertaste.

    Imágenes y situación D.O.Ca. Rioja

    Muga is one of those few wineries in Rioja that has managed to combine the most absolute family tradition with a renewed vision of the future. 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”.
