Flor de Muga is produced on the basis of plot selection of very old garnacha vines (between 70 and 90 years’ old), grown at an altitude of 600-750 metres in two distinctly different terroirs: ferrous clay and chalky clay soils. These recently chosen plots are carefully watched over and when they reach the peak of maturity the grapes are picked by hand into small crates.
Vinous 93 points - Extremely pale pink. Fresh, mineral-accented red berries, orange pith and pungent flowers on the intensely perfumed, expansive nose. Shows superb tension and clarity in the mouth, offering sappy raspberry, cherry and rose pastille flavors that display a noteworthy blend of power and finesse. Finishes extremely long and minerally, leaving juicy red fruit and floral notes behind..August/2018
James Suckling 94 points - TOP 100 SPANISH WINES OF 2018 #19 - Pure grenache with some time on the lees to build richness. This has a deep, smooth and very silky feel with light raspberry and some watermelon on the finish. The lees-work is very cleverly judged. Great balance. Super fresh! Drink now..August/2018
Enjoy Flor de Muga Rioja Rosado now and over the next 2-3 years as the perfect patio aperitif wine. It matches up beautifully with salade Nicoise, roast chicken, grilled shrimp, tapas, and mild cheeses.
