Review

When a winery like Muga launches a new wine it's wise to keep well informed, but if we're also dealing with a top of the range rosé, then our senses must be in for an absolute delight.

Flor de Muga is made solely from Garnacha grapes grown on old vines owned by the winery, and lying at an altitude of around 700 metres on clay soils. The free-run grape juice from the best selected berries ferments at low temperatures in small wooden casks, since the limited area covered by the parcels chosen for the production of this Flor de Muga doesn't allow for large volumes. Afterwards, a period of four months spent on fine lees adds an extra unctuous note overall. In the final blending, the wines of the different parcels are combined so as to raise complexity in the realm of rosés to a new level.

If you figure among the lucky ones who get to uncork one of these wonderful bottles of Flor de Muga, you'll find a wine that's a subtle pink colour with violet glints, a result of a short maceration of the grape skins. The over-riding virtue isn't powerfulness, but elegance. It's complex, fresh and delicate, with its nose revealing strawberries and rose petals and a velvety feel overwhelming its palate. Mineral, balanced, and in a word: unique!

Great Rosado

Great Rosado made from white grenache grapes that smells and tastes as fruity and flowery as the nice label suggests. Recommended!

Toller Einstieg eines hochklassigen Garnacha-Rosados

Ein neuer Rosado von Bodegas Muga, eines der renommiertesten Weingüter in der Rioja, dessen Weine großartig sind und meist hochdekoriert. In dieser Liga spielt der "Flor de Muga" noch nicht, auch wenn ihn "El Pais" schon einmal zum besten spanischen Rosé des Jahrgangs 2016 ausrief. Immerhin hat er eine nette Geschichte mit auf den Weg bekommen: Inspiriert worden sei Name und Etikett von der üppigen Farbenpracht eines japanischen Kirschblütenbaums, gepflanzt vor einem Jahrhundert von der Großmutter und Mitbegründerin des Weinguts, Aurora Caño. Eine schöne Hommage. Der Flor de Muga ist einer der seltenen reinrebigen Garnacha-Rosados. Im Glas beeindruckt er durch die Trendfarbe provenzalisches Lachsrosa; die Nase braucht etwas Zeit, bevor diverse Früchte und zarte Blüten zu erkennen sind; am Gaumen ein mittlerer Körper, fruchtig und frisch, zum Ende etwas vage mit einer gewissen Unwucht zugunsten der Säure. Ein toller Einstieg eines hochklassigen Rosados, der jedoch noch Luft nach oben hat.
