Since my first exposure to good wine, which happened to coincide with the start of my career at The Society, I have been fascinated by Rioja's wide variety and rich history. I was thrilled to discover that the modern and traditional styles are discernible to my inexperienced palate and have enjoyed regular experimentation ever since. I have found this deep, smooth and oaky wine a particular favourite.
You can taste the attention to detail that has been crafted into it, enhanced by the top-quality oak barrels that are coopered by Muga themselves. In my family we drink it alongside slow-cooked lamb or roast beef and although it is delicious now, I look forward to tasting it as it matures, not least for the ongoing learning experience it will provide.
