Rioja may be best known for its earthy, full-bodied wines based on Tempranillo, but its white wines are some of the most exciting wines in all of Spain. This version from the traditional Muga bodega is primarily Viura (known as Macabeo elsewhere in Spain and in France), with a hint of both Garnacha Blanca and Malvasia. Lush, floral and full of orchard fruit notes, this is supple and luxurious on the palate but finishes with a wonderful mineral note, thanks in part to the clay and limestone soils on which it's grown, in the Rioja Alta subregion.

 


Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 92
"Light yellow. Lively and sharply focused on the nose, displaying fresh citrus and orchard fruit scents and subtle vanilla and floral overtones. Shows sharp definition and spicy lift to the Meyer lemon, pear and honeysuckle flavors, which deepen through the midpalate. Closes long and juicy, with repeating florality and a dusty mineral flourish." -Vinous
