Se specifikation and tasting notes



The grapes used for making Prado Enea, along with those for Torre Muga, are always the last ones to be brought into the winery. This late picking ensures ideal ripening. The grapes are then fermented naturally in 10,000-kilo oak vats with no temperature control or added yeasts. The maceration time can vary and may go on for up to twenty days. This wine is aged in 16,000-litre capacity oak vats for twelve months and then (minimum) thirty-six months in oak casks and (minimum) thirty-six months in the bottle. After cask-ageing the wine is gently fined using fresh egg whites.

James Suckling: Wow!
A more sophisticated, savory and minerally attitude on the nose with dark chocolate, plum liqueur and dark cherry that's still very primary. Violets, too. This has sexy, seductive dark plums and berries on the palate with an immaculate tannin texture and freshness. Profound, unending depth. Wow! Try this from 2023.

Aro 2015


70% Tempranillo and 30% Graciano.


Fermentation always occurs naturally and spontaneously. The grapes will always ferment in small wooden vats with a low capacity, no temperature control and indigenous yeasts. Maceration times can vary but may go on for as long as two or three weeks. The total time this wine spends in the oak is 24 months, of which 18 months are spent in new, French-oak casks, and the rest in selected French-oak vats. After ageing the wine is lightly fined using fresh egg whites.


Very intense, black-cherry colour almost opaque, dense robe and purple hues. It looks very young with little sign of evolution.

Sensations of concentration and depth, with loads of nuances which will be heightened by the bottle ageing, and which will become more marked with the passing of time.

Sensations of fruit to the fore, recalling red fruit and small, very ripe wild berries (blackberries, redcurrants, wild strawberries…), floral (violet petals) and mineral (graphite, iron) notes. Spicy hints of cinnamon and black pepper from the ageing. With the oak very well integrated which displays the high quality of the selected wood.

Potent structure on the palate, full-bodied with firm tannins of great elegance and quality, balanced by splendid acidity. It gives a sense of solidity with no cracks or sharp edges, hearty, with great balance and a sensation of freshness. Full of flavour, supple and broad ranging reminders of fruit, minerals and spices in the mouth aromas. The sensations on the nose are reproduced, but perhaps sharper and better defined. A long, full, elegant aftertaste.

Bodegas Muga -  Wines born from inspiration and authenticity

Bodegas Muga is located in the historical Barrio de La Estación (railway station district) in Haro, within the area called Rioja Alta. The facilities are two centuries old, built mainly of stone and oak.

In Muga, we always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity. To produce each of our wines, we continue opting for traditional procedures through the natural process of fining, we eliminate the suspended particles that appear in the wine.

We carry out the decanting by the traditional method of gravity. and we are the only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers.

The site climate is exceptional due to the singular geography and orientation of the vines and the surrounding climates –Mediterranean, Atlantic and Continental climates are combined harmoniously thus creating a suitable climatic for grape growing.

The soil in this area is mostly clay and limestone, divided into small terroirs with different physical and chemical qualities between them; thus each terroir has a unique and defined personality. This abundance of climatic influences and different soils define prolonged stages in the vine growth cycle. The growth will be complex and delicate, key to the potential quality of the wines in this area.

Bodegas Muga owns 620 acres of vineyards but it also has control over 370 acres owned by vine growers in the area. The grape varieties grown are Tempranillo (the essence), Garnacha (Grenache), Mazuelo (Carignan) and Graciano for the red wines; and Viura and Malvasia are used for the white wines.
