Muga Selección Especial Reserva Rioja, Spain, Double Magnum (3LTR) 2011 

 65% Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and 5% MazueloAged for 26 months in oak. 

A firm favourite here and we will let the critics do the talking for this wine. 

"The 2011 Reserva Seleccion Especial, from a warmer and drier year compared with the average (as well as the previous harvest), has a similar blend as the regular Muga Reserva; it is 65% Tempranillo with 20% Garnacha, 10% Graciano and 5% Mazuelo, and it was fermented in small vats with indigenous yeasts. The different varieties and grapes are fermented and aged separately, the first year in new oak and the second one in used barrels. 2011 is a powerful vintage for this cuve, which now shows quite marked by toasty aromas. Warm vintages usually need longer in bottle to integrate the oak, but experience shows that it gets absorbed and in fact the evolution of this wine in bottle is very good. Even if the nose recommends to wait, the palate is very balanced, with remarkably ripe tannins for such warm year, which can sometime produce some harsh tannins." 92/100 Luis Gutirrez Wine Advocate

Deep colour, fleshy savoury style with rich, dark chocolate. Juicy, ripe fruit. Full bodied, long finish.” Sarah Jane-Evans MW & Tim Atkin (October 2017)   –   Top 100 Riojas UK 2017

“Fruit from cooler Villalba contributes winning zip and freshness to this Tempranillo-dominated blend. Dark berry sweetness, Asian spices and deftly integrated oak with plush tannins and the backbone to age for a decade or more”. 94 Points Tim Atkin MW comments on Muga Selección Especial Reserva 2011 – Decanter March 2018
