Flor de Muga Rosado 2019
Rosado fino y elegante que tiene como origen una extraordinaria Garnacha riojana. Realiza una fermentación en tinas de madera. Muy aromático, con recuerdos de melocotón, cítricos y flores blancas. Carnoso, untuoso y con buena acidez en el paladar. Sensacional.
Viñedo y elaboración
Opinión de los críticos
There is now a white with the same name, so I added the color to each name to distinguish them. The 2019 Flor de Muga Rosado was produced with Garnacha grapes from a dozen plots of old vines in the Alto Najerilla zone of Rioja Alta, where they have traditionally sourced the grapes for their rosés. These old vines are head-pruned and planted mostly in small terraces and slopes at 600 to 750 meters in altitude, conditions that bring freshness to the wines. They only used half of the free run juice that fermented in small oak vats at low temperatures, and each plot fermented separately, sometimes in vats as small as 500 or 1,000 liters. The wines are kept with the fines lees that were periodically stirred for a period of four months, and at the end, they do the blend of the different wines. It shows smoky/spicy with subtle aromas of rose petals and herbs. The palate is dry, serious and austere, with freshness and very good natural acidity. This should keep nicely in bottle. 22,380 bottles produced.
A creamy-textured rosé with sliced peach, orange peel, cinnamon stick, crushed stones and some citrus and vanilla. It’s full-bodied, dry and beautiful. Intense finish. Drink or hold.
