It's back for a limited time only! Château Miraval's hugely popular Pink Floyd is always the first rosé wine to vanish from our shelves, far before the dog days of summer. Sadly, Château Miraval is no longer a secret among the rosé- and Rolle- loving wine cognoscenti. Ever since a certain Hollywood power couple (Google Image search "Château Miraval" and you'll be amused, trust us) took residence at the gorgeous Miraval estate, the wines have been in short supply, and the 2010 New York Times nod to the Pink Floyd rosé only exacerbated the situation.
So, why this wine? Old-vines Cinsault forms the backbone of this cuvée, a luscious wine redolent of the just-picked strawberries and floral, wild herbs you find in the best Côtes de Provence rosés, while appealing red citrus and wet-stone flavors linger throughout the fresh finish. This is a thirst-quenching complement to summer fare, such as herb-dusted, grilled shrimp, broiled sausages, and any seafood repasts that involve Old Bay seasoning.
This year, the Pink Floyd is under strict allocation, and the first drop of which will arrive at USQ tomorrow. Along with just 120 regular 750ml bottles, we will receive ten magnums—for the year. Both 750ml and 1.5L bottles are on sale while supplies last. As a pre-summer special, those who take a 4-pack of 750mls will pay just $19.99 per 750ml bottle. Please note, the extra 4-pack discount will not appear in your checkout cart, but will be applied correctly at our register when the order is processed. Wine is scheduled to arrive Friday, March 9th.
