Winemaker Notes

A very pale pink rosé with violet glints, which looks lovely in the glass with dense “legs”. Elegant and fresh on the nose, at the same time delicate and complex, with reminders of red fruit such as strawberries, peaches, and white blossom. A supple, smooth mouthfeel, filling your mouth with fruity nuances which recall the sensations experienced on the nose. A long, fine, elegant wine.

Can be paired with tuna tartar, oysters, ceviche, rice, and pasta dishes.

Pure grenache with some time on the lees to build richness. This has a deep, smooth and very silky feel with light raspberry and some watermelon on the finish. The lees-work is very cleverly judged. Great balance. Super fresh! Drink now.

COMMENTARY: I have been a fan of Bodegas Muga since the 1990s and have kept track of their wines with each passing vintage. The 2017 Flor de Muga Rosé is one of the finest and significant pink wines in the world. TASTING NOTES: This wine pleasing and delicate. Its aromas and flavors of dried strawberries, mineral, and stone fruit should pair it well with pan-seared salmon in a slightly sweet and spicy sauce. (Tasted: April 17, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

I also previewed the 2017 Flor de Muga, as the 2016 is almost sold out and the 2017 will be released in April 2018. It fermented 50/50 in oak and stainless steel casks, but the oak is completely integrated and you don't notice the aromas. It was kept with the lees that were stirred to integrate the acidity and provide some volume. This is extremely pale, following the line of the 2016, with subtle aromas of dried roses and a balanced palate with some seriousness, even a little austere. A very tasty rosé produced with a nice selection of old-vine Garnacha grapes.
Range: 89-91

This pale, dry rosé is lively and expressive, with juicy acidity supporting the bright flavors of watermelon, raspberry and kiwifruit. The texture is silky, the flavors harmonious. Shows depth and focus. Drink now. 2,000 cases made.

Video of winery

Bodegas Muga is a family firm founded in 1932 by Isaac Muga and Aurora Caño. The first wines were made in an underground cellar, until in 1968 they decided to set up their own winery in a beautiful old 19th-century town-house situated in the city of Haro. The Bodegas Muga outstanding feature is that it always uses the finest materials, combining tradition with the latest advances in winemaking so as always to give its wines the very best quality without losing authenticity. Indeed, it is the only wine cellar in Spain which employs its own master cooper and coopers, who make all the vats for the cellar as well as the oak casks. The winery remains true to traditional winemaking methods such as racking the casks by gravity and fining the wine with fresh egg whites. Bodegas Muga has succeeded in combining the purest family tradition with an updated vision of the future which has allowed them to preserve their own personality and character.

Highly regarded for distinctive and age-worthy red wines, Rioja is Spain’s most celebrated wine region. Made up of three different sub-regions of varying elevation: Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental. Wines are typically a blend of fruit from all three, although specific sub-region (zonas), village (municipios) and vineyard (viñedo singular) wines can now be labeled. Rioja Alta, at the highest elevation, is considered to be the source of the brightest, most elegant fruit, while grapes from the warmer and drier Rioja Oriental produce wines with deep color and higher alcohol, which can add great body and richness to a blend.

Fresh and fruity Riojas labeled, Joven, (meaning young) see minimal aging before release, but more serious Rioja wines undergo multiple years in oak. Crianza and Reserva styles are aged for one year in oak, and Gran Reserva at least two, but in practice this maturation period is often quite a bit longer—up to about fifteen years.

Tempranillo provides the backbone of Rioja red wines, adding complex notes of red and black fruit, leather, toast and tobacco, while Garnacha supplies body. In smaller percentages, Graciano and Mazuelo (Carignan) often serve as “seasoning” with additional flavors and aromas. These same varieties are responsible for flavorful dry rosés.

White wines, typically balancing freshness with complexity, are made mostly from crisp, fresh Viura. Some whites are blends of Viura with aromatic Malvasia, and then barrel fermented and aged to make a more ample, richer style of white.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
