Winemaker Notes

As is often the case with Riojas, the traditional Tempranillo is used here, though there's a good pinch of Grenache and some local varietals, Mazuelo and Graciano, added for complexity. Accompanied by long ageing in new oak barriques, the result is a lovely sweet ripe wine with a bold, fruity nose. There's an additional deep herbal-earthy complexity and a hint of coconut and spice in the aromas. The palate is well balanced with more sweet herbal/fruit character.

The Seleccion Especial will benefit from a few years of cellaring. When you're ready to enjoy try this bold wines with a bold red-meat based meal: prime rib or roast lamb.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1996 Seleccion Especial has more intensity but not quite the same level of complexity as the 1994, with that minty leitmotif: touches of blackberry and boysenberry intermingling with marmalade. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins. It is nicely rounded in texture but perhaps a little attenuated towards the finish, whereas the '94 fans out across the mouth. Drink now-2017.

Bodegas Muga, Spain
Bodegas Muga Winery Video

Bodegas Muga is a family firm founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga and Aurora Caño. The first wines were made in an underground cellar, until in 1968 they decided to set up their own winery in a beautiful old 19th-century town-house situated in the city of Haro. The Bodegas Muga outstanding feature is that it always uses the finest materials, combining tradition with the latest advances in winemaking so as always to give its wines the very best quality without losing authenticity. Indeed, it is the only wine cellar in Spain which employs its own master cooper and coopers, who make all the vats for the cellar as well as the oak casks. The winery remains true to traditional winemaking methods such as racking the casks by gravity and fining the wine with fresh egg whites. Bodegas Muga has succeeded in combining the purest family tradition with an updated vision of the future which has allowed them to preserve their own personality and character.
