2011 Bodegas Muga Rosado Rioja (1.5L)

SKU #1087949

Muga makes one of the most distinctively delicious rosados in Rioja, indeed in all of Spain. It is a style referred to locally as "clarete," which is a lighter type of rosť made by combining white wine with some red, as opposed to the saignee method where color is derived from maceration on the skins of the grapes. Unlike 99.9% of other rosť wines, this one also sees a brief period of time in used oak barrels. The wine is a blend of Tempranillo, Garnacha and Viura, and shows very precise, tangy small red berry fruits, as well as some citric and apricot notes from the white wine component. This is a crisp, bracing, and unbeatable rosť for anyone who appreciates a very dry style.
