The Muga family believe that the best grapes are grown on their own estate, so for the past decade they've been buying up top quality vineyards. Following that same rule of thumb, they only use barrels made by their own team of coopers. The grapes for this remarkable wine come Villalba, on the south-facing slope of the Montes Obarenes, a site renowned for quality. It's cool up there and the grapes are the last to be harvested. Against all the norms, the grapes are fermented in small oak vats, with no temperature control nor added yeast. The wine is aged a year in small US oak casks, then three years in French barriques. After bottling, it's aged another three before release. Only made in the very finest years, this is a remarkable wine.

"Compact with dark fruit, dark mushrooms and cedary spice. Full body. Wonderfully polished tannins" James Suckling
