2015 Château Viranel "Tradition" Saint-Chinian Rosé
Light bright orange. Fresh and racy on the nose, displaying aromas of fresh red berries and orange zest. Fleshy, dry and focused, offering bitter cherry and red currant flavors that show a touch of warmth as the wine opens up. Closes soft and broad, displaying good cling and a lingering suggestion of candied orange zest. (JR)
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 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, 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!
