Muerza Tempranillo Bodegas Ugalde. An elegant red wine with hints of liquorice and dark fruit both on the nose and the palate. Well-structured and easy to drink due to a low level of tannins.

Food match: 

Try it with ham or a mild hard cheese, although it will stand up to most meaty dishes.

Producer/Region :

Established in 1882 by Felipe Ugalde, one of the founding members of the Rioja D.O.C. Bodegas Ugalde it is one of the few wineries which made wine during the Spanish Civil War (1936 -1938). Nestled between the North shore of the Ebro River and the Eastern-most skirts of the Sierra de Cantabria. The Ugalde team looked back on history and were inspired by Ugalde’s vision of 1882: Bringing Rioja terroir, as the new team understands it, into each bottle of Bodegas Ugalde.

Viticulture: Muerza Tempranillo Bodegas Ugalde

This wine derives from over 70 hectares of vineyard belonging to the wine cellar in Viana, and from other estates from the region that are contracted and controlled. Criteria regarding quality, moderation in terms of production and the search for the greatest number of smaller bunches of grapes have been paramount when planting our vineyards. Therefore, the plantation density in our vineyard is very high (4,000 plants per hectare according to a plantation framework of 2.5 x 1 metre), low-vigour rootstocks have been selected, piping has been laid on trellises with a high level of vegetation and a complete irrigation system using the drip method has been same time maintaining a certain level of water stress.

A wine made using stipped grapes, with the differents varieties being separated. Alcoholic fermentation for 7 days at a maximum of 27ºC. Maceration with skins for 5 days. Malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Ageing in oak barrels for 4 months.
