Minuty M Rosé review: Which food pairs well with it?
Minuty M Rosé’s high acidity will pair perfectly with salty dishes.
Classic appetizers are sliced salami/pancetta, fresh and roasted vegetables, bruschetta, and salads to name some.
Fish wise go for shellfish and prawns for example.
Meat wise go for chicken, lamb, and duck for example.
Cheese wise we recommend fresh and semi-hard cheeses like feta, mozzarella, and cheddar to name some.
Minuty M Rosé review: What's its alcohol content?
Minuty M Rosé wine’s alcohol content is 12.5%.
In case you wonder about alcohol content or more precisely Alcohol By Volume, i.e. ABV, measure the alcoholic strength of a drink.
There is a direct relationship between the sugar left in the wine after the alcoholic fermentation has taken place, i.e. Residual Sugar or RS, and ABV.
During alcoholic fermentation, the yeast transforms the sugar in the grape juice into alcohol.
Grapes with high residual sugar will therefore produce dry wine with a high ABV.
How many calories are in a glass of Minuty M Rosé wine?
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture  a 5-ounce glass will contain about 120 to 130 calories.
Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram. So a wine with high ABV will have a higher calories per glass than a wine with low ABV.
Furthermore, sugar contributes to the calorie count.
A dry wine will usually have 4 calories per grams vs a sweet wine that will have around 20 calories per grams of carbs, which include sugar.
So expect your glass of White Zinfandel to have a bit more of 130 calories per 5-ounce glass.
What is Minuty?
Here is an extract from the Minuty website itself:
“The branded wines marketed by Minuty SAS are made from a rigorous selection of wines…
…vinified on the best terroirs of the Côtes de Provence appellation and come only from producers selected for the quality of their vineyards and their terroir.
Each of the partners of Minuty SAS scrupulously respects the quality criteria required by François and Jean-Etienne Matton in order to perfectly match the Minuty style.
The wines in the M and Prestige ranges benefit from the expertise acquired over three generations by the Matton family in the production of rosés emblematic of the Côtes de Provence.”
It’s a light, fruity, and refreshing dry rosé blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, and Tibouren that for ~$20 offers a good value for your money.
It’s the perfect drink to enjoy on a sunny day on your patio or for a happy hour with friends.
Red currant, peach, and orange flavors will complement many dishes from veggies, pasta, fish, meat, and our beloved cheeses.
Try it with prosciutto San Daniele and asparagus, prawns, chicken sandwich, or feta cheese and it’ll be a delight. At least it was for me!
If you have never tried it, I’m not entirely sure what are you still waiting for.
