Rarely seen outside of the winery in Spain and select Michelin star restaurants, this delicious Brut Rosé is a rare treat our somms have procured just for you!

Bodegas Muga is Rioja Alta’s premier producer and the Muga family are unanimously considered to be one of Spain’s most important winemaking families. The winery has practically legendary status due to its philosophy revolving around adherence to tradition, dynamism, and winemaking of the highest quality. Few producers in the world fashion wines that have such a sense of tradition and place as Muga’s. The wines of Muga have an absolutely distinct, unique, and inimitable profile.

Made up of 100% Garnacha from the Laderas Obarenes vineyard within Barrio de la Estación, Haro, of Rioja DOCa, where the vines were planted between 1926-1986. The vines grow upon beds of red clay. After a careful selection, only the lightest pressed wine is used to produce this wine. The must undergoes first fermentation in 1,000L wooden vats, where the wine is left until April. The second fermentation takes place in a bottle for four months, and wine then ages for 14 months before release.

This is clean and mineral driven rose shows beautifully fine bubbles that are the result of long bottle aging at low temperatures. The perfect amount of toasty/yeasty aromas compliment the nuances of red fruit and spice on the nose. On the palate it is sleek and cool and terribly tasty. The extremely pale pink color is indicative of the flavor profile as this drinks more like a blanc de blancs than a rose. Very sophisticated.
