Mira Rose, a blend of Grenache and Grenache Blanc, offers a soft pink-rose color, with lychee highlights. The nose is delicate, opening with red berry, lemon and mandarin aromas. It is fresh on the palate, with lively strawberry and raspberry notes. This Rose is ideally served by itself as an aperitif, but is also excellent with white meats, such as chicken or pork, grilled fish and mixed salads, and pairs well with many light meals. It will also match up deliciously with the upcoming Thanksgiving feast where Rose has given a run to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as the wine of choice…assuming there is any left!
One interesting side note – Ferry Lacombe uses the relatively little seen Mediterranean PGI – Protected Geographical Indication – to promote and protect names of quality agricultural products. Yes, we think this wine merits that designation. A la Votre!
