Winemaker Notes

This wine displays harmony, complexity and elegance, depth and width. Enough of the "Mediterranean character" needed to make a friendly, powerful wine without losing the "Atlantic character" which complements it.

Critical Acclaim

RP 97
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2001 Torre Muga is an undeniably great wine. Still a deep purple color, on the palate it is densely packed, rich, and structured for the long haul. Give it another 8-10 years of cellaring and drink it through 2041.
W&S 93
Wine & Spirits
The modern face of Muga, the 2001 Torre Muga shows substantial new oak and full extract that only serve to ramp up the pure pequillo pepper Rioja scent. That, plus the umami taste of woodland mushrooms, could serve as Spain on an IV. It has the structure to last for a decade or more, and the grace to drink now with arroz de ganso (goose rice), or something as simple as wild mushrooms flash roasted with garlic and olive oil.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A bold, mouthfilling red with ripe, generous flavors of plum and black raspberry and notes of coffee, soy and tobacco. The tannins are well-integrated, and lively acidity lifts the flavors.

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.

Rioja

Tempranillo

View all products

Hailed as the star red variety in Spain’s most celebrated wine region, Tempranillo from Rioja, or simply labeled, “Rioja,” produces elegant wines with complex notes of red and black fruit, crushed rock, leather, toast and tobacco, whose best examples are fully capable of decades of improvement in the cellar.

Rioja wines are typically a blend of fruit from its three sub-regions: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta and Alavesa, at the highest elevations, are considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier, Rioja Oriental, produce wines with deep color, great body and richness.
