Bodegas Muga

This wine is pale salmon pink, very bright and with pastel reflections. In the nose very fresh fruit prevails, peaches standing out over the other fruit. Secondly you can appreciate a wide range of exotic fruits such as kiwi, pineapple and passion fruit. And at the end there are some yeasty touches coming from the lees. It enters the mouth with cheerfulness because of the acid components in the grape varieties used in this wine. It is a pleasant acidity since it is carpeted with the polysaccharides coming from the lees. The aftertaste is pleasant and long, finishing with a freshness that makes you want another sip. The retronasal passage is very special since the wine changes dramatically: the peach is lost in favour of the tropical fruit.

Wine Advocate

The 2007 Rose is composed of 60% Garnacha, 30% Viura, and 10% Tempranillo. It spent two months in American oak vats with 20% of the wine going through malolactic fermentation. Light pink in color, it has a lovely floral and red fruit perfume leading to a lively wine with good balance and a fruity finish. Drink it over the next 12-18 months.

Score: 88. —Jay Miller, August 2008.
