2016 BODEGAS MUGA CONDE DE HARO BRUT CAVA

$29.99 $29.99

It’s rare for us to feature a Cava in our emails, but then again, this isn’t your average Cava… This vintage Cava was made by Bodegas Muga, one of Spain’s most respected producers.  The fruit comes from high elevation vineyards near Villalba de Rioja, and the wine is crafted in the same manner as Champagne, with the secondary fermentation occurring inside the bottle.  Vintage Cava is aged on the lees, which results in a much fuller, richer style of Cava, with incredible body, depth, and often with notes of baked apple and almond.  High quality Cavas are some of the greatest values in Sparkling wine, and this one from one of Spain’s top producers, should not be missed.

The 2016 Conde de Haro blends 90% Viura, which is also know as Macabeo, and is an indigenous variety in Spain, that’s commonly used in traditional Cava, with 10% Malvasia grape, which adds vibrancy to the aromatics, and subtle layers on the palate.  Once harvested, the grapes are gently pressed and undergo their first fermentation in wooden vats.  Secondary fermentation is induced in the bottles and the bottles are kept for at least 14 months before release.

Description

2016 BODEGAS MUGA CONDE DE HARO BRUT CAVA

“… I am very pleased with the quality of this 2016. It has complexity, finesse, some nutty aromas an leesy notes, and it’s especially clean and focused with a sharp and fresh palate. This wine has improved a lot in the last few years. It was disgorged in early 2019.
90 Points
A bready, yeasty nose is rich and moderately complex, while this Rioja Cava is bright on the palate, with firm malic acidity. Apple, white-bread toast and spice flavors breeze onto an in-shape finish that’s crisp and tight at first, then more expansive and complex
 90 Points
“… a relatively tiny production Cava…all from high altitude vineyards, that was raised in oak vats. It has a great bouquet of sliced apple, white peach, and crushed rocks as well as a terrific core of sweet fruit, medium body, notable purity, and a clean, juicy finish. This is a beautiful Cava.”
