Eight hour maceration in pneumatic press, followed by fermentation in mostly neutral barriques, puncheons, and demi-muids. The barrels used for Muga Blanco are all coopered from French oak trees that are selected by the winemakers yearly in February. The staves are seasoned for a minimum of three years, and up to five.
4 months sur lie in mostly second and third use barriques, puncheons, and demi-muids.
A traditional barrel fermented white wine from Rioja, produced with a blend of the most important indigenous white varieties of the region. The wine is composed practically of all Viura and Malvasía, but there is a tiny quantity of Garnacha Blanca which adds complexity and aromatics. Typical and traditional in its blend and production, but unique in its higher levels of freshness and approachability at a young age compared to other whites from Rioja.
