Muga Blanco 2018
Mainly Viura with a small percentage of Garnacha blanca and Malvasía de Rioja.
Chalky clay and alluvial from the Rioja Alta.
Harvested by hand into 200-kilo crates to select the clusters in the vineyard and transport to the winery in a refrigerated truck.
After light maceration of the skins with the must in the press, it is fermented in new, lightly toasted casks of French-oak from the Nevers district. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, it spends a further three months in the casks with lees stirring twice per week to keep its fine lees in suspension in the wine, protecting it from oxygen and giving the wine a smoother mouth-feel and harmony. Before bottling, it is stabilized by cooling.
The bright, straw-yellow color does not give a sign of its time in the cask.
An open, complex nose in which you can find aromatic herbs such as fennel, citrus fruit (lime), stone fruit (peach), and slightly toasted nuances.
A fresh wine on the palate with good acidity. Balanced and silky smooth with a very long aftertaste.
The perfect pairing for grilled fish, shellfish, and rice dishes, among others.
