Rioja Rose. Muga 2016

Member Review by Kate Statton:

Beautiful pink color. Light strawberry with a little yeast and an almost Champagne-like flavor. This is very yummy.

Carnation pink color. Notes of tart, early summer strawberries, with just a hint of that signature spicy tempranillo. Present but not overbearing acidity.

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.

In appearance the wine has salmon pink shades with very bright rose pink iridescence which make it an unusual and extremely attractive wine.Its aroma is enveloping and intense throughout - with a predominance of fresh fruit- citrus , pineapple, kiwi with a strong tendency towards sweet, ripe apple and quince. It concludes its olfactory display with a reminder of its contact with fine lees. In the retronasal phase, the fresh fruit remains in the background, with the ripe fruit and lees coming more to the fore.In the mouth, it is suggestive. On the one hand, the effect of the lees gives it width, the fruit provides sweetness, and, to finish, the fixed acidity livens it up a bit. In the mouth, traces of the lingering carbonic acid give it the typical refreshing character of this kind of wines. The aftertaste is long and honeyed, with an elegant and lingering touch of acidity.

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.

An intensely fruity, but dry rose from Rioja, Spain.

A brilliant rose from one of Spain's finest wineries. Excellent citrus notes back up the lovely red fruits scents and flavors. Really fresh and invigorating on the palate.
