Founded in Rioja in 1936, Muga has a range in which the Rioja and the vineyards are well represented in all its aspects and price range. The Muga Blanco Fermentado en Barrica (Barrel Fermented Blanco) is a blend of the white grapes from Rioja - the Viura & Malvasía which are fermented in oak barrels (usually from Nevers in France and from Hungary) where it matures and in contact with the fine dregs until about February (4-5 months in total). This wine has an extremely low pH, 3.05, which is responsible for its clarity and bright, pale colour. The Muga Blanco FB is subtle and elegant, with some minerality, white flowers and fruit. The taste is soft, with good integrated acidity and very clean. The white Rioja is currently breaking through more and more with beautiful and especially very elegant white wines. Sierra Cantabria, Murrieta, Remirez de Ganuza have certainly been the forerunners in this.
