Central England Co-op customers will be able to enjoy a bit of Hollywood at home following the arrival of a new wine from megastars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Studio by Miraval Rosé has been created by the French vineyard Chateau Miraval, a stunning estate situated in Correns, in the south of France, which is co-owned by the famous screen stars.
The new wine, which costs £12 a bottle, is a blend of cinsault, rolle and the lesser-known grape tibouren and is currently only available in the UK. Co-op customers can now pick up a bottle in selected stores including Boley Park Supermarket, in Lichfield, Kibworth Store, in High Street, Kibworth Beauchamp, and Oakham Store, in Burley Road, Bakewell Store, in Market Street, Wildwood Store, in Cannock Road, and Eccleshall Store, in Stafford Street.
Critics have said the wine is a dry rosé and has a taste ‘infused by summer fruits’ with hints of redcurrants, nectarines and ripe raspberries.
Its name takes inspiration from a recording studio that is based on the site, which was installed by its previous owner, and jazz musician, Jacques Loussier. The music studio played host to a range of big names from Pink Floyd to AC/DC.
Matt Simpson, Boley Park Store Manager, said: “I am sure people would like to bring a taste of Hollywood into their lives and we cannot wait for our customers to taste this delicious new wine.
“We are excited to be one of the exclusive stores selling this product and we think it will be a big success with our customers and members.”
This latest wine is released eight years after the famous pair bought the 500-hectare Miraval. The first 6,000 bottles of Miraval Rosé they produced in 2012 sold out in just five hours.
