Bodegas Muga Reserva 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage has rather fresher fruit and floral notes which are present in all the phases of the tasting, but without becoming dominant at any time. The palate has a fresh, jammy cherry, red-berry fruit compote, a touch of liquorice and aniseed, and hints of fennel and white blossom. The rich spectrum of aromas is so great that it barely leaves room for the hints of oaky spices to make an appearance. Smooth mouth-feel with a predominance of sweet, well-rounded tannins, quite surprising for the age of the wine. A presence of natural acidity which has become blurred and in no way intrudes. The aftertaste is long and silky, with a curious mixture of the sweet shop and mineral sensations coming through.
