Miraval

Provence, provence France

Château Miraval is located in the Provence village of Correns, the first 100% organic village in France. All of the crops, including grapes, are grown organically in this wild and picturesque village.

Château Miraval has 50 hectares of terraced vineyards on the estate. They are at 350 metres altitude, resulting in cool nights that moderate the warm days which in turn help the grapes retain their delicate aromas and crisp acidity. The clay and chalk soils at Miraval are also important for quality, because they help regulate water supply to the vines so they have water when they need it and drainage when they don't. At harvest, the grapes are hand picked in the coolness of the morning and hand sorted twice to ensure that only the best grapes go into making the rosé. It is a blend of 50% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 20% Rolle and 10% Syrah.

All the grapes are gently pressed to extract just the right amount of colour, except for the Syrah, which is made using the saignée method. Each variety is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks separately and then blended post fermentation. Additionally, the Rolle is put into 228 litre barrels and bâtonnage is practiced to add texture and complexity. The wine is a beautiful pale pink with enticing aromas of raspberries, cherries and hints of garrigue. The palate is dry with crisp acidity and a lingering perfumed finish. The Miraval rosé is exemplary, as is its striking bottle.

New to the Miraval range this year is the ‘Studio’ Rosé. A delicious blend of Cinsault, Grenache, Rolle and Tibouren which pays tribute to the many artists, including Pink Floyd and AC/DC, who have made tracks at the recording studio on the estate.
