A lively and delicate rosé that's very pleasant and long-lasting, obtained from the blending of Garnacha (60%), Viura (30%) and Tempranillo (10%) from Muga's coolest estates. Produced by means of a 12-hour maceration and fermented in 2,000-litre oak tanks, in which the wine rests for two months before being bottled.
A pale pink rosé, the typical Provençal salmon-pink colour, with elegant aromas of red fruit berries, ripe citrus fruits and red flower petals, with an underlay of toasted bread and fresh herbs. The palate boasts a very good balance between the acidity and the fruit and the creaminess of the lees. A fresh finish, faintly spicy and luscious.

A rose I really like
I always try and avoid Rose if given half a chance but for this one I make an exception. Muga makes fabulous reds that I love (but can't generally afford!) and I'm told the whites are also good (but haven't tried yet). This Rose is delicious and I think really reasonably priced for the quality. Jump in, you'll enjoy it
Balanced, soft and moreish.
An excellent quite full bodied, dry Rosado. Superbly suited as a food pink, it comfortably works with all classic tapas dishes. I rate this as my current favourite rose and I drink a lot of rose!! Unfortuanately it can and does sell out each vintage, so buy soon.
Found this wine in Lanzarote and loved it. Hard to find in the UK but traced it to Vinissimus. Excellent wine - excellent service. Not like your normal rose wines some of which can be sickly. This is dry and fragrant
Summer in a bottle
My favourite rose wine for the summer. Start ordering this beauty from the end of April until stocks run out (this end date is getting earlier and earlier as people cotton on!!)
Great value, very drinkable Rose
Enjoyed this over a summer bbq. Good value for money and went down well with all of our bbq guests. Opened one of these first and didn't end up opening any reds or whites.
