Trust me, it's nothing against you. I've almost bought this twice now, but I have a plethora of dry whites right now, which I am trying to learn to enjoy, but still tend to prefer the sweeter side of whites.

Pastas, steaks, grilled vegetables, etc....

let's just say that I really like food, and I really like wine... both together and separately.

any chance you put your cab up here?

Okay, all this chatter and I, not a real chard fan, have jumped in for 1. Thanks!

I am a first time Wine Buyer. I figured I might as well let Woot get me addicted to something new. My fiance does not like much of anything that is too sweet or too fruity. What would be a good bottle (or 3) to start off on. I myself am not too picky and have high hopes of being able to finish whatever we get. Thanks for your input.

I didn't even realize I was the first sucker:

Inspiration Estate 2008 Chardonnay
Current numbers (updated each minute)
First sucker: mschauber
Speed to first woot: 5m 0.377s


This may be a running trend when Jon offers his wines on Woot

LOL u missed a great 2 pck already. Our cab is lovely if I do say so... But I'll let others comment on that...

Ok- if you like food, and you like pasta, how about a nice cheesy or creamy white sauce, throw in some garlic and prawns? This wine was MADE for it.

It's got tannin, acid and bold fruit flavors. No it's not red, but my hands became red growing and making it... ;)

I will sometimes switch back to this wine after drinking red because it has the acid to hold up.

Same here! I passed. Although I prefer medium dry to dry red wine, only, I want my white wines to be medium or medium dry.. never dry.

I must be the only one here that actually likes buttery dark chards. This is sounding "crispy". I really need to get some more ...but, I think I need to pass. In a good informed way though. I rather save the money and not complain later that I had no idea what I was buying. Thanks for the input!

Love it or leave it!

The good ones do. I would say during normal days the winemakers/owners get on and join the discussion about 80% of the time, some with more vigor than others. During woot-offs it is much less frequent because it's very hard to plan for since they may not know when their wine is actually going to be up for sale.

Both Shirley and Jeremy like Chards, a bit of a problem because I have bought about 3 cases of reds. I hadn't really taken Celia seriously but she does like reds, so looks like she had moved up on the list, at least until we've finished some of the reds. So in for two for Shirley and Jeremy.

received my wine today, haven't opened it yet but i suspect its bad, milky & large particles floating.
Anyone else get their wine and find the same ?

djgorman


quality posts: 0 Private Messages djgorman

the milky appearance and sediment settles out in a few minutes once poured. Took a few sips to understand the flavor. I thought it didn’t taste right, then tasted drinkable, and then actually pretty good.
I think the one unusual trait was that it seemed to get sweeter.
Undecided if I'd buy more but maybe my appeal with grow with my other bottles.

i'm surpried that no one has commented on this wine.
