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.

Bodegas Muga
The Muga wine cellars were founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga Martínez who originated from a family with strong ties to the winemaking industry. On the death of the founder in 1969, his children Manuel, Isabel and Isaac Muga Caño took over the reins.

Two years later in 1971, they moved their headquarters to their present location in the traditional Station District on the outskirts of Haro. Bodegas Muga has continued to grow as the years have passed but it has never lost the spirit or aptitude of a family-run company.

The winery controls every step of the viticultural and vinification process from the vineyards to making their own barrels and fermenting and aging the wine entirely in oak. Muga is one of only six estates in the world that owns its own cooperage and they import the oak directly from the United States and France. Bodegas Muga is one of the oldest, most elegant and traditional Rioja producers.
