DOMAINE LAFAGE – Miraflors Rosé
Named after an old estate located in the heart of Domaine Lafage, Mas Miraflors, the Miraflors Rosé is sourced from old vines of Grenache Gris and Noir, some nearing 80 years old, planted near the Mediterranean. This a direct press rosé with the color coming from the skins of the pink Grenache Gris berries, and naturally, from the much darker Mourvedre and Grenache Noir. It is aged in tank for 4 months before bottling.
APPELLATION– Côtes Catalanes, France
GRAPES: Mourvedre, Grenache Gris, Grenache Noir
TASTE: Its fresh, crisp, clean, and in a dry style is a masterful match for almost any cheese; even a brie, goat cheese. Grenache and Mourvèdre are all used to create this pale, pink rosé and gives aromas of strawberry, fresh-cut watermelon, and a floral rose petal, finishing with a distinctive, salty clean minerality on the palate.
PAIRINGS: Brie, Young Goat cheese or fresh sea food
