Muga Rioja Rose 2020
In Muga, they always use the finest materials and are open to new techniques that provide greater quality without losing authenticity. To produce each of their wines, they continue opting for traditional procedures: Through the natural process of fining, they eliminate the suspended particles that appear in the wine. They carry out the decanting by the traditional method of gravity. They are also the only cellar in Spain with a master cooper and three in-house barrel-makers.
After 4-5 hours of maceration in the press, the must is fermented for 15-20 days in small wooden vats at a controlled temperature of about 16-18ºC. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, it remains with its fine lees in suspension for a further 12 weeks, in order to heighten its organoleptic qualities, especially its smooth mouth feel. Before bottling it is stabilised by cooling.
Pale pink wine, with a bright, elegant sheen. Very complex and intense nose with aromas of stone fruit (peaches, apricots), citrus (mandarin peel), strawberries and notes of dried hazelnuts. Silky-smooth mouth-feel with good acidity. Balanced and very long on the palate. Perfect to accompany white meat, pasta, rice dishes, salads, cheese...
