2013 Bodegas Muga "Conde de Haro" Cava

SKU #1278594 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 2013 was a weird vintage for reds, but at Muga they consider it very good for whites, Rosés and sparklers. Yes, because they produce a sparkling wine under the Cava appellation, but it is produced with Rioja grapes grown in Rioja. The 2013 Conde de Haro is not produced in every vintage, as they only do it in years with high acidity (and 2013 certainly was like that); they pick the white grapes interplanted with red varieties in old vineyards in cooler zones. The blend can be approximately 90% Viura and some 10% Malvasía Riojana fermented in oak vats without malolactic, with a second fermentation in bottle where it is kept in contact with the lees for no less than two years. There is a very nice combination of nutty and yeasty aromas, and very good freshness, as the vintage was very good for white wines that show. The bubbles are fine and nicely integrated in the wine; it's not aggressive at all. (LG)  (8/2016)

- With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. In recent years, a great deal of money and passion has been poured in the burgeoning Spanish wine industry, helping to improve quality among its vast array of wines from sparkling Cava to Sherry to Rioja Gran Reserva. The most important red-wine-producing regions are Rioja, Ribera del Duero and Navarra in the north and Priorat and Penedes in the northeast.
