Muga Selección Especial Reserva, Rioja DOCa, Spain 2011

Muga Seleccion Especial Reserva is a traditional style Rioja, with subtle oak and fine tannins. Layered complexities of barrel-ageing embedded in a velvety texture and concentration of dark fruit.

On the palate, elegant, beautiful juicy fruit with flavours of red berries and plums followed by cloves and liquorice and then spices of tobacco and vanilla. All perfectly integrated with soft, sweet tannins. Full-bodied, rich and soft.

Fermented with indigenous yeasts in oak barrels. Aged for 26 months in oak barrels that are made in their own cooperage. Bodegas Muga is one of the only few wineries left today to continue to make their own barrels in their facilities. 

Seleccion Especial Reserva is made only in the best vintages.
