Marqués de Murrieta Primer Rosé 2015. is the first rosé produced by the estate in over a decade. Effectively this is Castillo Ygay Rosé, as the 100% Mazuelo grapes used to make it come from the old vines in the La Plana vineyard, which until 2015 were used exclusively for the production of the legendary Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial.
Aged on the lees for 40 days and eschewing the heavy extraction common to many Spanish rosés, it has a decidedly delicate Provençal feel to it, but with the characteristic complexity, depth and texture one would expect from the producers of Castillo Ygay.
Although yet to be scored by the critics, Primer Rosé’s debut vintage is one for which Jancis Robinson said that the vineyards of Rioja “were showing especially high quality” and the wines display “powerful concentration and richness”.

100% Mazuelo from the La Plana vineyard that is home to Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial. The first rosé produced by the estate in over a decade. Pale pink with a slight salmon tinge. Spends forty days on the lees, imparting a gentle toasty note to the strawberry, raspberry, red cherry and herbal complexity of the nose. Full-bodied on the palate, the fruit is pure rather than candied, flecked through with satsuma, almond and vanilla cream, and a long crisp and refreshing finish. Aug 2016, F+R
