90+pts Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "2018 is a year with more freshness and is perhaps better for whites and light wines than for powerful reds. Bottled a couple of months before I tasted it, the 2018 Muga Blanco is mostly Viura with some 10% Garnacha Blanca (a grape that is going to grow in percentage) and maybe 5% Malvasía Riojana and a pinch of the other white grapes. It's clean, floral, fresh and very easy to drink, with focused flavors and a pleasant bitterness on the finish. It feels quite complete, harmonious and fresh. 240,000 bottles produced." Jun 2019

Winery:  "The Viura grapes come from old vines providing a good base to which the combination with the Garnacha Blanca and malvasía varieties brings greater complexity and harmony. Viura 90%, malvasía and Garnacha Blanca the remaining 10%. The Viura grapes come from old vines providing a good base to which the combination with the Garnacha Blanca and Malvasía varieties brings greater complexity and harmony.

Pale yellow in color with greenish glints denoting its youthfulness and freshness. A clean nose with intense, complex aromas of white blossom, American lime citrus notes and slight toasted nuances coming through from the oak. On the palate, it can be defined as a fresh wine with good acidity, a silky texture and reminders of fruit such as pears.

A perfect match for vegetable dishes, rice, fish and tapas."
