Wine Wednesday - Current Wine Crush - Rosé
A few weeks back, I spotted Brad Pitt on the cover of Wine Spectator, and I thought to myself, “oh geez, another celebrity making wine - or putting their name on one” but, when I saw it was a Rosé from Provence and the price point was reasonable, I knew I needed to give it a try. (Confession - Brad Pitt was my celebrity crush in high school, however this had nothing to do with me wanting to try this wine, wink wink.)
As I poured the lovely salmon colored liquid into my Zalto glass, I wondered if this wine, outside of all the hype, would stand up to my idea of a delicious Rosé. I am happy to report that Miraval certainly did! While my skeptical side was telling me this was all marketing, I could not help but fall in love with this wine. Exhibiting a beautiful nose filled with hints of rose petal and flavors of wild strawberry, white peach, showcasing an absolutely tantalizing minerality with a wonderful viscous texture that finishes long. This Rosé is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah and Rolle and is lovely to drink on it’s own, however it would pair beautifully with many dishes, including the dessert we had it with: fresh apple pie.
As I continue my love affair with all that is Rosé, I will share my favorite finds with you along the way.
