Muga Rosé Rioja 2008
88 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): Bright pink. A complex bouquet displays scents of red berries, cherry, dried flowers, anise and baking spices. Pliant, silky red berry flavors display good depth and gentle sweetness, with a late note of fennel adding complexity. Finishes with good juicy persistence and lingering minerality... has the power to handle richer, grilled foods.

External Reviews for Muga Rosé Rioja
This dry rose is light and pale in color and delivers lovely, delicate flavors of watermelon, rose and tangerine that linger through the finish. Light and crisp, but intense and focused.
From the respected winery of Muga comes this delicious rosé made from Tempranillo. Just like the red version, this wine possesses nuances of leather and clove spice, but also a delicate strawberry and rhubarb fruit profile. Light in body with great acidity, it is fantastic when paired with chicken, tapas, and good friends.
