Primer Rosé 2022

Primer Rosé is a dreamer wine with an ambitious, challenging and fresh spirit. It is the youngest brand and most subtle expression of Marqués de Murrieta.

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. 




MARQUÉS DE MURRIETA PRIMER ROSÉ 2022

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. 

September 21st, 2022.

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 concrete tank at a controlled temperature of 10°C (50°F), avoiding malolactic fermentation.

After fermentation the wine is left on its fine lees for 5 months adding density.

Tasting note

With a crystalline pinkish hue and a beautiful, scented harmony that shows hints of wild strawberries, redcurrant, undergrowth, rose petals and aromatic herbs. Firm and fruity in the palate. A balance and harmony that lead to a delightful finish. “We reaffirm our commitment to the mazuelo variety and concrete tandem to produce this beautiful rosé” María Vargas - Technical Director.
