MARQUÉS DE MURRIETA PRIMER ROSÉ 2020

Primer Rosé is made with grapes from La Plana, a 40-hectare (98-acre) vineyard, planted in 1950 and located at 485 meters above sea level, in the highest area of our Ygay State, in Rioja Alta.

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.


“The unforgettable 2020 has brought us an aromatically stunning, polished and lively Primer Rosé” María Vargas - Technical Manager of Marqués de Murrieta
