70% Tempranillo, 20% Garnacha, 7% Mazuelo and 3% Graciano. Fermentation in oak vats with indigenous yeasts. Aged for 24 months in oak casks selected from our own cooperage. before bottling the wine is fined using fresh egg whites. Once bottled the wine is rounded off in the bottle for a further minimum of twelve months in our bottle cellar. 

Tasting It is one of the most elegant and complete harvests of recent times. Despite its youthfulness, three and a half years at the time of this tasting, we can already have a sense of the satisfactions it holds in store for us.

In appearance it is a wine with not the least sign of evolution: purplish-red with an even robe and barely translucent.

On the nose it is a harvest which can easily be recognized for the significant difference in its fruit characteristics compared to previous vintages. More of the fruit with pips tan of fruit with stones, accompanied by perfectly ripe red berries. This is all underpinned by hints of mainly white flowers (this is not a normal characteristic of Muga crianza/reserva vines), and a very full spectrum of oaky spices without any one of them clearly dominating. The aromas conclude with subtle hints of toasting and leather.

In the retro-olfaction the same descriptors can be used but the toasted nuances and leather tones gain in importance.

The attack is surprisingly pleasant if we remember that this wine does not usually become rounded until it is 4-5 years old. We can find soft tannins with no sharp edges. It has a good, very long finish.
