Hmm… I need to grab my shipment from HAK so I can decide if I want more or not.


#4

anyone had this from last offer? Is it more ala LMR/Twenty Rows OR gooseberry/grassy (NZ-type_).

Thanks


#5

Hey! I just picked up my order of this, and I love it. It’s 2 very different wines in one. Room-temperature, it’s fruity-fruit FROOTY. From the fridge, it’s crisper and tarter. Nice either way.


#6

Were anyone else’s labels messed up in the last offering? Most of mine had a bunch of air bubbles under the labels. Kind of spoiled the aesthetics of the cool bottle design.


#7

Nope, never had an issue with the labels on any wine.woot offer…moisture issue?


#8

I remember WD talking about that during the original sale:

That’s fresh WCC air right there. Treasure it. You can probably pierce it with a pin and flatten it out.


#9

Ah, thanks for the info, I had missed that. I was more curious than bothered by it… if they were hand labeled I can understand - I’ve actually done a fair amount of bottle labeling myself.


#10

They’re lucky I wasn’t helping. They would have been crooked with some upside down even.


#11

I’ll just pretend they’re clouds :wink:


#12

thanks for chiming in. would youn say this is more on the tropical fruit end of SB as opposed to gooseberry-NZ types? I am not a big fan of the latter so any info would help


#13

about 1/2 of my bottles had labels that were not applied very well. Lots of large air bubbles.


#14

Well, room-temperature it’s very Banana/Kiwi/almost Pineapple thing. Cool it down and it gets tarter; not quite sour gooseberry but you definitely get a “white grapey” tartness in it, a little bit of “dry champagne type” tartness IMO. Does that help?

FWIW, room temperature it goes AMAZING with spicy food; had some with some home-made spicy Bangin’ Bart (Indian eggplant thingie) and it was awesome.


#15

Anyone in the DC Metro area willing to split this? Or if you have one bottle from the last offering that you’re willing to let go, please PM me. Thanks!


#16

I am drinking it cold right now and tasting a lot of lemon, a pucker-worthy amount. Tart, sharp finish. Not tasting much else but I am a wine newbie. I am not loving it. Maybe I’ll try again at a warmer temp.


#17

You should go check out the comments from the original offer. I just quaffed one of these over the weekend and was reminded of the first time I got to try this. And this time I managed to actually share instead of clutching the bottle protectively.

New Zealand style.

Also, I was totally vindicated from when I first claimed “kiwi” when we had this on the RPM tour. People kept doubting me and looking at me like I had 2 heads (instead of 8 arms). But one of my friends (a non-wooter) on Saturday had a first reaction of “kiwi!”. Ha.


#18

Oh, was that your wine that I drank? I forgot that it wasn’t for me. :tongue:

Yeah, we gotta figure out how and when to get it to you. Maybe another NYC tasting at some point in the next couple months…


#19

NZ styley but not as cool and crisp as a great NZ…almost but not quite…a little more fruity without being sweet…deffinitely 2 different wines between ice cold and not quite so chilly…altogether good wind down friday evening ahhhhhhh but not great like Esoterica 2010 which was the best I have had in a long while…really wish I’d bought more!

I would love to comment on this, but mine still has not even shipped yet from the last offering. Never had a woot order take so long before.
