The fruity intensity of a great Tempranillo from Rioja

The Torre Muga 2014 is a prestigious wine from the celebrated Muga Bodega, which is located in the heart of the Rioja Alta sub-region in northern Spain. The vintage expresses all the typicity of the greatest terroirs of the sub-region that is bathed in a Mediterranean climate with Atlantic influences.

The Torre Muga 2014 from the Muga Bodega is produced in the Rioja DOCa appellation and consists of a blend of Tempranillo (75%), Mazuelo (15%) and Graciano (10%). It is from vineyards planted on clay-limestone and alluvial soil, which give the wine its unique character. The wine is elaborated at the estate’s winery in Haro.

At tasting, the Torre Muga 2014 form Bodega Muga offers an intensely pigmented colour with purple highlights. The expressive aromatic bouquet reveals ripe blackberry and fresh black pepper that evolve into mineral graphite notes and smoky scents. The smokiness testifies to the subtle ageing in French oak barrels. With aeration, menthol and rosemary fragrances bring a radiant freshness to the bouquet’s aromatic opulence. On the palate, the Torre Muga 2014 displays all the strength of its personality through offering an ample and generous mouthfeel. The elegant tannins are enhanced with vibrant acidity and the energy from peppery liquorice notes. The mouthfeel stretches into an elegant, pleasant and persistent finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
There was no 2012 or 2013 produced, so we jumped from the 2011 to the 2014 Torre Muga, a blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Graciano and 10% Mazuelo from the middle of the slope in the village of Villalba de Rioja (where the Muga family comes from). It combines the freshness of the higher-altitude vineyards of the Prado Enea with the power of the lower ones used for the Muga range. It fermented in oak vats and had a shorter élevage of only 15 months (it used to be more), and the different varieties were kept separated until the penultimate racking when they were blended. There is more volume here and some more spice from the élevage, with an open and expressive nose. It's medium-bodied with some fine tannins and less weight in the mid-palate than other vintages. 20,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2016.
