Traditional viticulture of Rioja Alta. Proprietary head trained and trellised vineyards planted in high altitude areas of Rioja Alta. Organic, uncertified. The grapes for Torre Muga are selected from the coolest climate growing regions in Rioja Alta. These zones, near the Oja-Tiron rivers, are the last to fully ripen in Rioja Alta.
Calcareous clay and alluvial.
Continental with heavy Atlantic influences that are moderated by the Sierra Cantabria.
The grapes are sorted extensively at the winery and undergo indigenous yeast fermentation in open top oak fermenters that are produced at the winery. The wine is transferred to French oak barrels following the primary fermentation.
The wine spends 24 months in French oak, 18 of which are in 225L barriques produced at the winery. The other six months are spent in large oak vats produced at the winery.
Torre Muga is a wine that characterizes the power that a wine can Rioja Alta can achieve, balanced with the freshness of the high altitude mesoclimate of the vineyards located near the Oja-Tiron rivers.
