Available for:
Category White Wine
Region Spain, Rioja
Brand Bodegas Muga
Pale yellow in colour with greenish glints denoting its youthfulness and freshness. A clean nose with intense, complex aromas of white blossom, American lime citrus notes and slight toasted nuances coming through from the oak. On the palate, it can be defined as a fresh wine with good acidity, a silky texture and reminders of fruit such as pears. A perfect match for vegetable dishes, rice, fish and tapas.

The 2018 Blanco (90% Viura and 10% Malvasía and Garnacha Blanca) is a beautiful wine that shines for its purity, balance, and freshness. It's not the most complex white, yet it has plenty of white flowers, apple peel, and citrus aromas, medium body, a seamless texture, and a great finish. It's well worth seeking out.

2018 is a year with more freshness and is perhaps better for whites and light wines than for powerful reds. Bottled a couple of months before I tasted it, the 2018 Muga Blanco is mostly Viura with some 10% Garnacha Blanca (a grape that is going to grow in percentage) and maybe 5% Malvasía Riojana and a pinch of the other white grapes. It's clean, floral, fresh and very easy to drink, with focused flavors and a pleasant bitterness on the finish. It feels quite complete, harmonious and fresh.
