Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

Royale Was The Case That They Gave Me

McClean. A neat freak from Scotland. McClean Royale. The classiest wine you've never before seen. See how the right words can bring out a wine's true meaning?

Give up some love for Michael McClean, that mastermind behind the wine that bears his family name. Without him, we'd never ever be lucky enough to offer you a case that's never been released to the general public before.

Before today, the McClean Vineyards Royale Case was maybe only available to astronauts, kings, rock stars and some guy who knew how to sneak into Michael McClean's wine cellar. But today? Today the McClean Vineyards Royale Case is open to THE WORLD!

We couldn't be prouder to be sharing our space with these twelve bottles. Raspberry, strawberry jam, chocolate nougat and black pepper will just pour out of the bottle once you pop the cork. It's been designed for a very special occasion and Michael McClean has decided: today's the day!

This might be your only chance to be an early adopter in the world of wine. Jump on it. Jump like a Frogger player on his final frog. Chances like this don't come along every day.

Features

McClean Vineyards Royale 750ml Case

Syrah and Viognier have long complemented each other (the varietals are often co-fermented in the Côte-Rôtie region in the Northern Rhone area of  France). The 'Royale blend' from McClean Vineyards in Paso Robles continues this harmonious relationship. The wine's Syrah character is tempered by a gracious amount of Viognier, which gives it a truly elegant mouthfeel. Raspberry and strawberry jam aromas are complemented by hints of chocolate nougat and black pepper. Impeccably balanced tannins leave a soft, lingering smoothness in the finish. The wine is full, textured, and features wonderfully integrated oak with an abundance of soft, sweet tannins.
 
Michael McClean has been saving this Royale for a very special occasion. It has never been released to the general public before. And what better occasion than to celebrate the election of 2012 ... and letting the Woot family be the first to enjoy this release exclusively!

This all came about when winemaker, Michael McClean, was speaking to his aunt who lives in Sydney, Australia.  She loved his Syrah, but told him that down under they had started to blend Syrah with Viognier, and he thought to himself, "how peculiarly interesting."  So trying to give his customers something different and unique, he has combined their 2006 Estate Syrah with their Paso Robles 2011 Viognier.  And viola! Magic occurred.
