Bodegas Muga Muga Rosado 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

60% Garnacha, 30% Viura and 10% Tempranillo. We have here a wine with riper characteristics than normal but still what we can call fresh fruit. On the nose, you can detect peach, pear and cherries at the point just before ripeness, still with a slight sharpness. We then come across some apple, also tart and very clearly defined, bringing a pleasant fresh sensation. The final aroma is of newly-baked pastry. The sharp apple notes return in the mouth in the form of perfectly integrated malic acid which is heightened and polished by the effect of the fine lees. The finish is surprisingly long and leaves you with a sensation of cherries mingled with pastries. Not yet reviewed; 2011 vintage rated 90 points by Wine Advocate.

Pale, salmon-pink colour with slightly copper-tinged hues in the bulb of the glass.A curious vintage in terms of aromas, as we can hardly detect the typical tart apple and citrus fruits which are normally such a hallmark of this wine in other years. This time we are confronted with a whole spectrum of fruit aromas in which perhaps pears, peaches and passion fruit are the ones which stand out most. The impression is comparable with the impact on our sense of smell when we enter a fruit market: you can smell everything, it is all pleasant on the nose, but there is not just a single, clearly recognisable aroma.In the mouth it is syrupy without being sweet, supple thanks to the work of the fine lees, and held together by the right touch of sharpness provided by the garnacha grape.
