Muga Blanco White Barrel Fermented Rioja, Spain, 2022
Grapes: Viura, Garnacha Blanca and Malvasía de Rioja, hand-picked, 4 months in French oak with lees stirring
The 2022 vintage of Muga Blanco has a lovely straw-yellow colour. On the nose it reveals itself to be a complex wine, with citrus notes, such as lemon, lemon cake, floral aromas (white blossom) and stone fruit (peach), with even hints of vanilla.
On the palate, it stands out for its well-balanced acidity. This is a powerful wine in which the floral, citrus and stone fruit notes reappear in a very long finish.
Enjoy over the next three years with full-flavoured grilled fish dishes, shellfish, Paella or turkey.
The vineyards are located in the Oja and Tirón river valleys of La Rioja Alta, but the winery itself is based on the outskirts of Haro, the historical home of La Rioja’s most prestigious bodegas. Bodegas Muga have been a family business ever since its creation in 1932. Over the years, Muga wines have gained international recognition and acclaim. Meticulously faithful to their traditional winemaking methods, Bodegas Muga use French and American oak vats and casks throughout the entire process.
