Muga Rosé, like the other wines from Bodegas Muga, is produced from a blend of trellised and head trained vineyards in the highest altitude zones of Rioja Alta. Farmed completely sustainably and organically, but uncertified.
Calcareous clay and alluvial.
Continental with Atlantic influences.
After macerating for 12 hours, the wine ferments for 15-20 days in small wooden vats at 16-18ºC.
The rosé develops complexity during three months of ageing on the lees in the fermentation vessel.
When Bodegas Muga was founded in 1932, it was actually called Claretes Muga, or "Rosés Muga," due to the company's specialty of high quality traditional claretes from Rioja. A clarete is a rosé that is produced from cofermenting red and white grapes. This was particularly common when the highest proportion of red varietals in Rioja was dominated by Garnacha. Today, Muga continues this tradition with Muga Rosé, which is Spain's most respected and demanded rosé.
