2008 Château Viranel "Tradition" Saint Chinian Rosé (Previously $13)
Château Viranel is a small family run domaine located in the picturesque Languedoc appellation of Saint-Chinian. The domaine's rosé is perfect for an apéritif but is also ideal served throughout a meal because of its richness and volume on the palate. Pretty rose petal color. An intense nose of summer fruits (blackberry, raspberry, blackcurrant) and a fresh and fruity attack. Round mouth, smooth, very elegant. The finish is full-bodied and rich. A truly gastronomic rosé from 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache noir and 20% Cinsault, made by drawing off for Grenache and Syrah. It is an extremely versatile rosé to enjoy with a plethora of dishes including summer barbecues, salads, tagine with prunes, paella, andalucian gazpacho, terrine of spring vegetables, beef carpaccio, stuffed vegetables, roasted peppers, salmon cakes, ratatouille and many other delicious dishes to match your culinary expertise! 12.5-14% abv.
