Muga Rosado (Rosé), Bodegas Muga, Rioja, Spain, 2018
60% Garnacha, 30% Viura and 10% Tempranillo, ageing: 3 months in oak.
Bright salmon colour. On the nose, one finds intense aromas of exotic fruit: raspberry, cherry, kiwi, etc., as well as delicate yeasty notes. On the palate, it is fresh and lively with a good acidity. This is a wine full of finesse with a long, rich finish.
The vineyards are located in the Oja and Tirón river valleys of La Rioja Alta, but the winery itself is based on the outskirts of Haro, the historical home of La Rioja’s most prestigious bodegas. Bodegas Muga have been a family business ever since its creation in 1932. Over the years, Muga wines have gained international recognition and acclaim. Meticulously faithful to their traditional wine-making methods, Bodegas Muga use French and American oak vats and casks throughout the entire process.
