Miraval

When emotion springs forth from the land.

Miraval Rosé 2018
A beautiful light pink color, fresh fruits aromas, a refreshing acidity. This is the interpretation Miraval is making about Provence's terroirs.

The vintage

The 2018 vintage is a ray of Provencal sunshine, thanks to the region’s particularly generous climate and nature. The rains at the beginning of the season meant the vines were well-prepared and grew healthily in the spring. This is an exacting time during which we need to be constantly in the vineyard, keeping an eye on things, and the work is painstaking and meticulous. The warm and sunny summer we then enjoyed in Provence enabled the grapes to mature perfectly and harvesting conditions were ideal. This 2018 vintage is a rich one indeed, full of fruit and a fine freshness.
