Oak aged but not clumsily, so clean & sharp. Presents like a Macon with some zip. Muga brings such value.

Viura remains one of the most underrated white varieties in the world, straight up.

90% viura, 10% Malvasia and Garnacha Blanc. Dry, crisp, with lemony citrus, unripe yellow peach. Racy acidity with lots of minerality. Slightly flint and petrol. Says fermented in new French barrel and sits on its lees for for 3 month Can't really feel or taste the oak note or the lees note.

This is a ridiculous value and the 2017 vintage is stunning. Rich, round fruit in the mid palate, intense concentration and tremendous finesse throughout. Finishes with a mineral streak that is delightful. Do yourself a favor and serve this in large Burgundy bowls which greatly enhance the ripe peach, mango and citrus blossom character in this lovely wine.
