Flor de Muga Rosado, Bodegas Muga, Rioja, Spain, 2020
Grape: 100% Garnacha with at least four months oak maturation.
On the nose it appears complex and intense with aromas of peach, citrus notes and white blossom and underlying spicy nuances provided by the fine French oak from the small vats. On the palate it is fresh, with good sharp acidity, yet still meaty thanks to the result of the lees stirring. Long finish in the mouth.
Flor Muga comes from a dozen carefully selected plots from the Alto Najerilla district with a Continental climate and between 70 and 90 years old. Bush vines, mainly grown on slopes, at an altitude of between 600 and 750 metres. Vines planted in terraces of chalky-clay and red ferrous clay soils which are ideal for the garnachas made from these nearly one hundred-year old vines.
"This is the big brother to Muga's popular rosado. Definitely a cut above, the fruit sourced from Rioja's top origin for old-vine Garnacha; fermented in small wooden vats. Subtle aromatics, blossoms in the mouth with white peach and strawberry fruit. A fine texture and a long dry finish. Love the stylish cut glass punt." 92/100 points, Sarah Jane Evans MW, Decanter.com. May 2021
