Brambly wild berries, citrus zest, rose petals and crushed river rocks burst from the glass in this food-friendly, luscious '16 Rose. Full yet energetic, this wine whooshes across the palate, but it lingers with a satisfying mouth-feel that marries electric acidity with its fleshy finish. A blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache, and 20% Cinsault grown in clay and limestone soils, this wine ferments in stainless steel tanks, and it ages in a combination of 20% used barrels and 80% tank. It's a classic mineral-driven rose that complements a wide array of foods, yet it also drinks beautifully on its own.

Chateau Viranel Description

With its roots dating back almost five centuries, Chateau Viranel is the heart and soul of Languedoc's Saint-Chinian. The Bergasse-Milhe has owned its property since 1551, so its commitment to, knowledge of, and passion for the winemaking traditions of southern France are long, deep and profound. Today, the estate is helmed by brothers Nicolas and Arnold Bergasse-Milhe, who, despite their youth, craft a range of wines that thrum with life, burst with tangy fruits, and brim with terroir. Chateau Viranel ranges across almost 100 acres, all tended with sustainable agriculture, and its terraced vineyards sport limestone-rich soils and grow extensive wild herbs and beautifully tended olive groves. By nurturing the lands surrounding the family's vineyards, the Bergasse-Milhe brothers ensure that their wines showcase their unique terroir, but for all the brothers' dedication to their land and their wines, they imbue their bottlings with whimsy, delight and energy.
