Muga Rosé Rioja 2010
Pale, salmon-pink color 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.
External Reviews for Muga Rosé Rioja
At first glance it has a strong salmon-pink hue and its aroma is marked by a reminder of apples. On the palate, evidence of the garnacha balanced by viura so as to create a beautiful mosaic of fruit flavors. It is a very serious wine, a rose wine with a bit of punch.
