Muga Selección Especial Reserva Rioja, Spain, 2016
Grape varieties, a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 7% Mazuelo and 3% Graciano. Aged for 28 months in oak.
A dry red Rioja. Muga is one of the more famous wineries from Rioja and with good reason, the wines are sublime. This wine has a black-cherry colour with a high robe and good density. On the nose it brings back reminders of ripe red-berry fruit, spices (pepper) and woodland herbs; the full spectrum of coffee aromas also makes a strong appearance: coffee toffees, roasted coffee, etc. with very well-integrated oaky aromas. In the mouth it is silky-smooth, with a presence of tannin revealing its youth and good cellaring potential. The tannin backbone gives it elegance and fine balance.
Try with red meat, lamb and grilled rockfish.
The new 2016 vintage recently rated 96/100 by Tim Atkin MW in his 2021 Rioja report ... A stunning wine, once again.
