Flor de Muga comes from a dozen carefully selected plots in the Alto Najerilla district and upper reaches of the Valle del Oja. Both districts enjoy a Continental climate and the vines are between 70 and 90 years old. Low-yielding bush vines grown mainly on slopes. The combination of the characteristics of the calcareous clay and ferrous clay soils, location and climate makes them ideal for preserving the fresh profile needed for making rosé wines of great complexity
right, pale-pink colour. High degree of complexity and intensity on the nose, with aromas of red-berry fruit, stone fruit (peach, apricot), white blossom and citrus fruit – all very typical characteristics of the Garnacha Tinta variety. You can also detect a subtle, spicy note (vanilla, cinnamon) produced by its vinification and ageing in small oak vats. On the palate it is very elegant and well-balanced. It has marked acidity which brings it length and liveliness. Again the fruit notes appear in the mouth, especially apricot. The finish is very long and fresh, with very smooth tannin which provides backbone to convert it into a very gastronomic wine.
Ideal with seafood, pasta and rice dishes and salads. Great to drink by the glass as a starter or with a small snack on a terrace.
"A layered and flavorful rosé with sliced lemons, white pepper and raspberries with hints of citrus. Some pear skin. Medium body. Crunchy. Hints of phenolics. This is a blend of garnacha and viura, co-fermented. Stainless." - 91 points, James Suckling
