Bodegas Muga Rioja El Anden de la Estacion 2019

$23.00

The winery, tasting room, barrel room and vineyards at Bodegas Muga are well worth a visit if you’re ever visiting the wine country in Spain. It’s pretty much the gold standard for state-of-the-art Spanish winemaking facilities. They do the virtually unheard of in making their own hand crafted custom barrels (over 14,000 in-house), and they give you endless Jamón ibérico and charcuterie to pair with their lights out Reds.

Armed with the best winegrowers, winemakers and equipment possible, they continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in Rioja and make racier and racier blends that others simply cannot replicate. That’s why they’re the top dogs everyone’s chasing.

They manage 420 hectares of vineyards in some of the most desirable areas in the region – using no herbicides nor insecticides in their winemaking. They really are an institution. Robert Parker, Jr. called their Riojas, “among the finest wines you can find from this renowned appellation.”

Their newest addition to the fleet is a gorgeous Crianza that pays homage to the train station that was responsible for shipping wine from Rioja to Bordeaux during the Phylloxera epidemic. This vintage, the 2019, is just their second time making it but judging by the critical response and its lightning quick opening year sell out, it’s definitely here to stay.

Expert Reviews

92 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2019 El Andén de la Estación is a new red that takes advantage of the Barrio de la Estación, the train station neighborhood of Haro. It’s a Crianza with less extraction, looking for the elegance and finesse of the classical Rioja wines. It’s a blend of Tempranillo from their younger vines and Garnacha (that they buy) that matured in French and European barrels for 14 months. It’s a quaffable red with lots of Garnacha character. It’s floral, juicy and expressive, very open and approachable. This is delicious and still quite complex.”
