Review

When a winery like Muga launches a new wine it's wise to keep well informed, but if we're also dealing with a top of the range rosé, then our senses must be in for an absolute delight.

Flor de Muga is made solely from Garnacha grapes grown on old vines owned by the winery, and lying at an altitude of around 700 metres on clay soils. The free-run grape juice from the best selected berries ferments at low temperatures in small wooden casks, since the limited area covered by the parcels chosen for the production of this Flor de Muga doesn't allow for large volumes. Afterwards, a period of four months spent on fine lees adds an extra unctuous note overall. In the final blending, the wines of the different parcels are combined so as to raise complexity in the realm of rosés to a new level.

If you figure among the lucky ones who get to uncork one of these wonderful bottles of Flor de Muga, you'll find a wine that's a subtle pink colour with violet glints, a result of a short maceration of the grape skins. The over-riding virtue isn't powerfulness, but elegance. It's complex, fresh and delicate, with its nose revealing strawberries and rose petals and a velvety feel overwhelming its palate. Mineral, balanced, and in a word: unique!

Top Rose

Flor de Muga ist ein sensationeller trockener Rose. Er ist nicht nur ein Sommerwein, sondern passt auch ganzjährig zu hellem Fleisch, Pasta und Salaten.

Great Rosado

Great Rosado made from white grenache grapes that smells and tastes as fruity and flowery as the nice label suggests. Recommended!
