Miraval, Studio by Miraval, IGP Méditerranée, Blanc, 2021

Story

The vintage
The winter was dry and mild, followed by a wet and cold spring with a few episodes of frost, causing some damage. Despite this, flowering went perfectly well but with a limited quantity (-50% compared to the average). The hot and dry summer helped to preserve the perfect sanitary condition of the vines, with regular work of the soil to preserve freshness. An earlier harvest than usual took place in very good conditions between September 9 and October 1st. In the cellar, the excellent quality of the grapes allowed us to carry out vinifications with very little intervention. The wines are very promissing, with good acidity, lots of minerality and delicious citrus notes.
Terroir
Partly from the plots surrounding the famous recording Studio and partly from a magnificent vineyard located at the foot of the Cézanne’s mountain, Studio by Miraval white is a tribute to Rolle which is The main local white grape variety.
Ageing
The Rolle is vinified in tulip-shaped concrete vats with a rounded bottom. This ovoid shape creates a natural convection movement that suspends the lees creating the same effect as a batonnage. This results in a wines that keep their fruitiness and acidity but also gives texture and body.
