Food Pairings for Bodegas Muga Rioja Blanco
This wine was featured at a recent wine tasting that I presented, solely on wines of Rioja. It was recommended by a friend, as being the best white wine he has tried. I am not a big fan of white wines, but I have to agree that it is very good. Not a traditional rioja, it has great bouquet and a fresh citrus/zesty flavour, well worth trying.
External Reviews for Bodegas Muga Rioja Blanco
87 points Neal Martin (Wine Advocate): Mainly Viura blended with Malvasia and Garnacha Blanca, the 2011 Barrel-fermented Blanco remains on its lees for three months in Allier French oak. It has a subtle, vanilla and almond-scented bouquet with fine definition. The palate is well-balanced with coconut and almond on the entry. I discerned a slight honeyed tincture and a pleasing creamy, patisserie finish. Drink now-2016. (8/31/12)
