Muga Rioja Torre Muga 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The philosophy behind Torre Muga is to make small batches of a modern wine using both a very traditional blend of Rioja varitetals and classic techniques. Only the best grapes from the winery are used, and they undergo an intense selection process on the triage table after harvest. Following fermentation in oak vats, the wine is aged for six months in wooden vats, 18 months in new French Allier oak barrels, and 12 months in bottle. It is fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered.

Tiefdunkles Rot mit schwarzem Kern. Dunkles, komplexes Bouquet mit Noten von getrockneten Früchten, Kräuter, Leder, Tabak, Rauch und etwas Stahl. Sehr dicht gewobene Struktur, kernige noch etwas trockene Gerbstoffe, kühl wirkend, lang anhaltend!

Toast and cola notes frame rich plum and fig flavors in this concentrated red, which is bright and polished, though theres depth under the muscular tannins. Impressive in the modern style. Best from 2011 through 2021. 1,000 cases imported. -TM Wine Spectator. A Tempranillo wine from Rioja in Spain. 2006 Muga Rioja Torre Muga 750ml

Tasting Notes:

Remarkably, Bodegas Muga is able to craft ultra-modern and extracted international-style Riojas such as Torre Muga, as well as more traditional Riojas such as their Reserva and Prado Enea. With powerful aromas of red and black cherries, as well as vanilla, cedar and mushroom notes, this wine also shows a bit of the overripe notes of the Torre Muga. On the palate, these overripe accents are skillfully balanced by red, tangy fruits in a fairly lengthy finish.

The philosophy behind Torre Muga is to make small batches of a modern wine using both a very traditional blend of Rioja varitetals and classic techniques. Only the best grapes from the winery are used, and they undergo an intense selection process on the triage table after harvest. Following fermentation in oak vats, the wine is aged for six months in wooden vats, 18 months in new French Allier oak barrels, and 12 months in bottle. It is fined with egg whites and bottled unfiltered.

24000 bottles produced.

Notes: 100% new French oak
