Not only delicious, this is all class. A properly dry palate with bright, nuanced aromatics. It is our biggest selling Rose but has strict allocations worldwide, so we can never get enough to keep everyone happy. So get in there – it's always summer with a glass of this in hand.

60% Garnacha, 30% Viura and 10% Tempranillo

Its Origins

Bodega Muga was founded in Haro in 1932 and is still in family ownership; the company farms 250 hectares in La Rioja Alta and in addition has long-standing contracts with the owners of another 150 hectares. Located in the foothills of the Montes Obarenses, the five principal vineyards (El Estepal, La Loma, Blatracones, La Loma Alta, and Sajazarra) share clay and limestone soils, each with its own unique microclimate, informed by the happy coincidence of continental, Mediterranean and Atlantic influences. The extended Muga family controls all aspects of the production and advocates the complexity afforded by the entire canon of grapes, that is to say Tempranillo, of course for the red, but also Garnacha, Mazuelo and Graciano in addition to Viura and Malvasia for the whites.

What The Critics Say

Parker's Wine Advocate, Luis Gutierrez

"A quick preview of the 2017 Rosado showed that it's a consistent, approachable, fresh and fruit-driven rosé. It's pressed directly with very little maceration, resulting in a pale rosé that is faintly floral. One of the characteristics of this rosé is that the aromas and flavors are very clean. 2017 is not an exception; there is good regularity in this bottling. They haven't really worked out the volumes for this 2017 yet, but there will be less bottles than in previous vintages." Drink 2018 - 2020
