If this wine wore pants, they'd be linen capris.

Ripe peach, nectarine, citrus blossom, with a hint of chalk. Mouth feel is round and super creamy, supported by just enough acidity to finish. Peach and strawberry fruits carry through on the palate. Super solid rose. 60% Grenache, 30% Viura (white), 10% Tempranillo.

Saline and watermelon. Nice mineralogy not as acidic as your average rosé. Crowd pleaser.

Blend of Garnacha, Viura and Tempranillo. This wine deserves huge credit, it's far from the super fruity styles that one can from Spain. Its elegant, lightly red fruited, white peach, red Apple, with a saline mineral note. Lovely delicate white flowers. Fresh, lively and juicy. Very elegant, you could be fooled into thinking this was Provence

Great all around #rose. This #wine is simple, focused and refreshing. Delicate salmon pink, but medium bodied, round. Citrusy nectarine, strawberry.

Yup that's poor Flick with his tongue stuck to the flag pole in a Christmas Story. Perhaps, the best Christmas movie 🎥 🌲 🎅. Another family tradition since it came out. As for the Muga rose, beautiful strawberries, cherries, watermelon, touch of tangerine, nice grainy chalkiness, good presence minerals but not overdone, really nice acidity and round, fresh, ripe, full, polished finish. Don't pull a Flick, it'll ruin your wine palate.
