I attended last Wednesday, the wine tasting of Miraval Rosé 2013, that took place in Enoteca,Tabaris.

The Provençal rosé, is owned by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. It is produced on the 150 acres of vineyards at the Chateau Miraval, the South of France estate that they purchased for $60 million in 2008.

The Vintage

In 2013, the winter was long and dry followed by a cold and wet Spring and important climatic variations up until harvest. Thanks to a lot of hard work in the vineyard throughout the year, the grapes reached perfect maturity. The 2013 vintage is characterized by a low yield but is very promising.

Miraval Rosé is a wonderful blend of fruits aromas and freshness, made on an exceptional terroirs in Provence.

The Process

The grapes are harvested exclusively in the morning and sorted twice. Destemming. Pressurage direct for Cinsault, Grenache and Rolle. The Syrah is vinifies partially using the “saignee” method. Vinified in temperature controlled stainless steel vats (95%) and in barrels (5%) with batonnage.

The Miraval Rosé is great to have outdoors with sunny, good weather. As far as food, it’s good to have it with raw salmon, raw tuna or maybe a Niçoise salad.
