2012 Château Viranel "Tradition" Saint Chinian Rosé

SKU #1125135

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, black currant) and a fresh and fruity attack. The finish is elegant and long. A truly gastronomic rosé from Syrah, Grenache Noir and 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, Andalusian gazpacho, terrine of spring vegetables, beef carpaccio, stuffed vegetables, roasted peppers, salmon cakes, ratatouille and many other delicious dishes to match your culinary expertise!

One of my favorite rosés of this season for sure. I find it full of flavor, with some richness, dry but not austere and just a pleasure to drink really. Grapefruit, Raspberries and lots of minerality.

Finally Rose Season is here! This beautifully dry and crisp rose is exactly what I look forward to as the weather turns warmer. Great acidity a touch of red fruit, perfectly balanced.

After a cold winter, bereft of jubilant pink wines, we welcome the arrival of one of the first rosés of the season! Chateau Viranel's rendition is, as usual, a dry little number full of juicy red berried fruits and mineral notes. This latest release from the newly minted 2012 vintage is a tad bit more intense and fulsome than its predecessor. Great with Grilled Tuna steaks, lavender crusted pork loin or eggplant lasagna.
