2018 Muga El Anden de la Estacion
From a TAWC favorite winery. Bodegas Muga!
The El Andén De La Estación by Bodegas Muga from La Rioja presents a dense crimson colour in the glass. The first nose of El Andén De La Estación presents nuances of mulberries, blueberries and blackcurrants. The fruity parts of the bouquet are accompanied by notes of cask ageing such as oak, juniper and Mediterranean herbs.
This velvety red wine is impressive and complex on the palate. The balanced fruit acidity flatters the El Andén De La Estación with a soft feeling on the palate, without missing out on juicy liveliness. In the finish, this red wine from the wine-growing region of La Rioja finally inspires with considerable length. Again, there are hints of mulberry and blueberry. In the reverberation, mineral notes of the soils dominated by limestone and clay are added.
Muga El Anden De La Estacion Made with the Tempranillo and Garnacha varieties - El Andén de la Estación is a modern-style wine that ages in oak barrels produced in the winery itself for 14 months.
Muga El Andén de la Estación Crianza is a new project launched in 2020 by the Muga family. As one of the most traditional yet forward thinking viticultural families in Rioja, the bodega has made significant investments in new vineyard holdings through planting and acquiring parcels from growers over the last 30 years. Andén de la Estación, a name which pays homage to the train station that was responsible for shipping wine from Rioja to Bordeaux during the phylloxera, was born out of the family's desire to produce a traditional style classically gastronomic Rioja Crianza, with a profile showcasing the Muga signature complemented by a youthful and fresh profile.

"Deep ruby to the eye, this wine has a nose of pomegranate and espresso with a sense of earthiness. Velvet tannins play backup to flavors of black cherry, pomegranate, caramel, roasted yellow pepper and tomato leaf that wind down to a savory but bright finish."
65% Tempranillo, 35% Garnacha
