Muga Blanco 2019
Dominado por la Viura, variedad apreciada por su buen comportamiento en madera, este vino representa la esencia del vino blanco riojano con el particular toque que, además, le aportan la Malvasía y la Garnacha blanca. Untuoso y, al mismo tiempo, fresco, su fermentación en barrica y posterior crianza con las lías durante 3 meses potenciaron su complejidad y equilibrio.

Opinión de los críticos
The 2019 Blanco fermented in new French oak barrels (60%) and in small oak vats and was kept with lees for three months, a change they started in 2016, giving it more time with lees and bottling it a little later. This is not light; it's 13.6% alcohol, but it keeps very good freshness and very healthy acidity with less oak than in the past. This was a bit reductive and took some time to open up. It's balanced and has integrated oak. It was a good year for Garnacha Blanca, and it represents almost 15% of the blend this year. So, it's a little more Mediterranean than 2018. 240,000 bottles produced.
A layered, fruity white with sliced cooked lemon and some apple. Hints of hot stones. It’s full-bodied and dense with plenty of fruit. Drink now.
