Muga Rioja Torre Muga 2006
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.
Bodegas Muga is a celebrated winery in the Railway District in the town of Haro in Rioja, Spain. Moved to the present location in 1971 by the children of founder Isaac Muga Martinez, Muga Winery was been producing a variety of wines since its founding in 1932. Bodegas Muga currently is in control of one thousand acres of fertile wine growing land, and is one of the few wineries in the world that owns its own cooperage.
External Reviews for Muga Rioja Torre Muga
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!

Food Pairings for Muga Rioja Torre Muga
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.
24000 bottles produced.
Notes: 100% new French oak
