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 stabilized cold, filtered and bottled, ready to go to market. Muga Rosado is between rosé wine amongst rosés. Each wine vintage after the next delights its fans. And there are many.

Principally calcareous clay from the Valle del Oja zone and ferrous clay in the Upper Najerilla valley zone.

Manual harvesting. After light maceration in the press for 5 hours, the must ferments at a controlled temperature of around 16-18ºC for 15-20 days. This allows us to preserve the maximum freshness, complexity and aromatic intensity of the grapes from which it is made. Once fermentation is complete, it remains 16 weeks with its fine lees in suspension, which will provide greater smoothness and length on the palate. Before bottling it undergoes cold stabilization.

What stands out in the Muga Rosado 2022 vintage is its pale, rose-pink color. It is very intense and complex on the nose, with an initial gush of peach, strawberry and white blossom notes. On the palate it proves a wine with very well integrated acidity, volume, balanced fruit and a very long finish.

In the aftertaste we can detect stone fruit and also citrus nuances.

Ideal with seafood, pasta and rice dishes and salads. Great to drink by the glass as a starter or with a small snack on a terrace.
