Beautiful coppery orange, almost bronze, in color, with a thick mousse of tiny bubbles.
A really fresh and aromatic nose of fresh wild strawberry, honeydew melon, freshly cut sweet grass, a touch of guava and pineapple, and a kiss of hibiscus.
Delightfully bright and crisp, with juicy tangerine, red raspberry, and red currant enveloping a touch of cranberry, lemongrass, lime flower, and lavender.
A lovely plume of mousse fills the mouth, with a refreshing crispness and acidity that leaves a slight tingle on the tip of the tongue.
Your favorite tapas. We went with fire-grilled calamari drizzled with a lemon oregano sauce.
What the Winery Says
Murviedro, ‘Muri Veteres’ gets its name from the ancient walls that surround the old town that bore witness to an ancient spirit which, event today, wanders through the caves and cellars.Luna de Murviedro Rosé is the first cava rosé made by Bodegas Murviedro.

The finest Garnacha grapes are harvested at the beginning of September. Cold maceration in apneumatic press. Fementation at 14ºC in stainless steel tanks. In January a process called ‘tijaje’takes place where the new wine is bottled and the second fermentation occurs in the bottle. The Cava is stored in ‘rima’, special containers for holding the bottles in position, for 9 months.
Appearance: Thick mousse of fine well integrated bubbles. Colour: Deep bronze tinged. Aroma: Fresh with aromas of ripe red fruits. Taste: Light crisp, fresh with good acity and fruity finish.
