York Press scores Mirabeau 17 out of 20

Press Media Reviews

My choice for summer night sipping would be light, fresh and moreish. I’ve picked three wines that are ideal for slurping on a balmy evening …Rosé is an obvious choice in the summer months. New at Waitrose is a user-friendly, Provençal pink, Mirabeau Rosé 2010, made by a Brit, Stephen Cronk. This is Stephen’s first release and a worthy one too. Dry and crisp, it shows elegance but is full-flavoured at the same time, with ripe cherries and strawberries, seasoned with fennel and lavender. On Sunday evening, after the men’s Wimbledon singles final has ended, I hope the sun is shining so I can sit outside and enjoy a glass or two. 17/20. – Mike Tipping, York Press

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
