Marqués de Murrieta Primer Rosé 2018 con estuche
Tras años de trabajo basados en la elaboración de los rosados de Marqués de Murrieta de mediados del siglo XX, la bodega lanzó este nuevo rosado con su añada 2015, la primera elaborada con uva Mazuelo. Primer Rosé es un vino rosa pálido lleno de vida y elegancia, algo que no solo se aprecia en su elegante y femenina botella sino también en un sabor lleno de sutileza y frescura. Se presenta con un estuche de color rosa.

Opinión de los críticos
The only rosé produced nowadays, the 2018 Primer Rosé is a young and pale Provençal style, and quite unusually, it's produced with Mazuelo grapes, the local name of Cariñena. The juice fermented without skins in a concrete vat, and the wine didn't go through malolactic fermentation and was kept with the lees for some 40 days. 2018 is a completely different year from 2017; it's a much fresher year, but they harvested early (as always) to get a vibrant wine with great harmony. The wine is very perfumed and floral. It's clean, fresh and tasty, with depth and a sense of harmony that I didn't get in previous versions; surely the best of these new rosé wines. 6,625 bottles were filled in April 2019.
Fantastic texture to this rosé, which is pure mazuelo. Medium to full body. Dried cherries and peaches. Extremely long and flavorful. Drink now.
The price always raises a few eyebrows, but there's no denying the quality of this direct pressed rosé and it would stand up well against top Côtes de Provence examples. Made entirely from Mazuelo, it's focused, elegant and pithy with cranberry and raspberry fruit and racy acidity.
