Tasting Notes: Red berry, Mineral, Floral, Citrus
Miraval is a joint venture between Famille Perrin (Beaucastel) and Hollywood A-listers, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The “Brangelina” breakup appeared at first to put the future of Miraval in doubt, but so far the brand continues apace. This has never been a celebrity stunt wine, though; it’s a serious wine made by a skilled winemaker.
Miraval Rose is balanced, refreshing, airy and elegant and has bright, natural acidity. This vintage instantly reminds of Provence with its beautiful aromas of fresh fruit and spring flowers. These aromas carry forth to the palate along with notes of citrus and lovely minerality. it ends with a long finish with lemony notes. Summer salad, grilled branzino or fried chicken match nicely.
