From the great bodega Muga comes the flagship Prado Enea, the 2014 with 96 Points. Family-owned Muga uses only estate-grown grapes from their finest high vineyard and barrels from their own coopers. The wine is rarely made, so this is one to savour.
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 then 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 best years, this is a remarkable wine.
"Really beautiful aromas of crushed blackberry, brambleberry, hazelnut, walnut and light coffee"
