2018 Château Miraval Côtes de Provence “Studio by Miraval” Rosé

Gliding into a holiday week with some Provencal rose by Miraval. Apparently this is inspired by a music recording studio that they have on their estate where some bands that you might have heard of (Pink Floyd, AC/DC) have recorded! Peaches, white cherries, stone fruit, lemon, and rose on the nose. Simpler on the palate with peach, cherry, and a hint of strawberry notes.

La Kiuva Rosé de Vallée

Sittin’ pretty with my Italian rosé, produced via the saignée method. And this one is fresh for a thirsty Thursday. Peppered strawberries, white cherries, and cranberries on the nose.
