Muga Blanco White Barrel Fermented Rioja, Spain, 2016
Viura 90%, Malvasia 10%, 3 months in French Oak
Bright Straw colour, on the nose complex fruity aromas of peach, apple and pineapple as well as delicate hints of vanilla from the oak aging. On the palate, it is lively and powerful, with good structure. The nice buttery creamy flavour is perfectly balanced by the crisp acidity together with a long and pleasant finish.
Enjoy over the next three years with full-flavoured fish dishes, such as Paella or turkey.

Meticulously faithful to their traditional winemaking methods, Bodegas Muga use French and American oak vats and casks throughout the entire process.
