A stylish, vibrant Rioja rosé from one of the region's leading lights. No oak here at all, just delicate, pretty and mouthwatering fruit.
Muga Rosado is a rosé wine by Bodegas Muga in DO La Rioja. Located in the town of Haro, one of the towns with the highest concentration of wineries in the world, Bodegas Muga is one of the historic cellars of La Rioja.
They began making wine in 1932, when Isaac Muga and Aurora Caño married. Muga Rosado is made from a blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo and Viura, typical varieties of La Rioja, from vineyards planted up to 480 metres above sea level on clay-limestone soils, with a climate marked by Atlantic, Continental and Mediterranean influences.
Once in the winery, the grapes are selected, destemmed and macerated for 12 hours before fermentation takes place in wooden tanks of about 2000 litres for 20-25 days at a controlled temperature of 18 degrees.
Once the fermentation has occurred, Muga Rosado rests for two months with its lees. After this, it is stabilised cold, filtered and bottled, ready to go to market.
