Marqués de Murrieta Primer Rosé

Primer Rosé is the newest jewel of the centenary winery Marqués de Murrieta. It was born in 2015 after several years of research and it is the only rosé wine made in Spain entirely with mazuelo grapes. Behind its exclusive packaging and delicate color, we discover a rosé wine with a great personality, finesse, freshness and elegance. It shows a ageing potential.

Recognised by the international critics, it is positioned in the podium of the most prestigious rosés. 


Primer Rosé is made with grapes from Lucas single vineyard, a 5-hectare plot planted in 1985 on the Ygay Estate. The soil is mainly calcareous-clay with alluvial boulder stones and it is located at 350 m altitude.

Made exclusively with Mazuelo variety. Right after reception in the cellar, grapes are de-stemmed and grape juice is separated from grape skins in order to extract the essence of the purest grape juice that will be fermented in a stainless steel tank at a controlled temperature of 10ºC (50ºF), avoiding malolactic fermentation.  

After fermentation the wine is left in contact with its finest lees for 5 months adding density.

Tasting note

Its subtle nose is the perfect wrapper for a wine with a solid palate. Fresh aromas of raspberries, blood orange, lavender and pink pepper. Freshness and liveliness on the palate combine with a persistent and expressive finish. Delicate, fluid and flavorful. “Our bet on the mazuelo grape as our exclusive variety is reinforced after seeing how it shows in this Primer Rosé 2021” María Vargas - Technical Manager.
