I love Pedroncelli wines. They are typically offered at a nice price point, a great value, the reds tend to age well and they are almost always varietally correct. On the last point, how much residual sugar is in this blend? Gewurtz can be anywhere from sweet to dry. I won't ask what the proprietary blend is, but would like to know if this wine has much sugar in order to inform my decision as to buy one or buy three from both my wife's account and my own.
BTW, this sounds a bit like the first Triacipadis blend without the riesling, if my memory serves me correctly.

Pedroncelli is an instant buy in our household. I've yet to be disappointed in any of their wines, both in quality and price point.. This is one of my go to QPR wines for parties at our house... Also, the customer service is amazing (in fact for new folks you likely will see someone posting very very soon from the winery {HI ED!!!}...

Pedroncelli was the last case bought from Woot before the GA shipping was cut off. Agree with other posters that this would be an automatic buy, but alas, government interference reigns supreme.

Does anyone know if wine.woot buyers actually receive their product? I placed an order in Dec 11th and have not rcvd anything but a charge to my Visa. Woot Support will not help!

[mod note: we'll be checking on your order with CS!]

Just dispute the charge with visa since no goods were received and there was no attempt at mediation by the seller. You should get your money back no problem.

So - is this a dry wine? I'm not a fan of most chardonnays - they are usually too creamy for me.

I purchased this wine the last time it was offered. I really enjoyed it and as per the sweetness...very little. I do not like sweet whites (or reds for that matter) and this works. Also, the label is great for gift giving. Getting ready to hit the gold button !! Thanks woot for offering this again...

Ditto for my household. Bought this during last offer. It's a wonderful blend that's great on its own, but really nice with spicier food like Thai or Indian curries and BBQ. As it warms up, it gets a bit more complex, especially with food. Chilled from the wine box it's like lemonade...we drank a bottle while preparing dinner and didn't realize it. Yummy!

You are right on the money.

Loved this wine. (And the 1st Triacip was my favorite.) I still have one bottle left from my last order. That, plus the frigid weather here, are not conducive to my buying this today.

The blend is, surprisingly, 50% Gewurz, 25% each Sauv. Blanc and Chardonnay. The RS is 0.5%, barely perceptible, but just enough to round out the finish.
I absolutely LOVE this wine. I actually bought (that's right Wooters, I PAID MONEY FOR WINE)a case of this wine to have at home. It is the perfect dinner-prep wine!

Hi-de-Ho Neighbors! Sorry I'm so late getting on. I am travelling to New Mexico (Taos Ski-Wine Fest--hey! Don't be a hater, someone has to do these things!) I'll try to post from the airport if I have time. This isn't very mobile friendly...funny, isn't it? A techie rich site like this and it's hard to post from a mobile device.
But fear not...my sarcasm will always be with you!

Interestingly enough...we were just discussing the blend for the next vintage and are likely going to leave the Chardonnay out. It doesn't really seem to add much to the blend in the next vintage.
I would say if you like crisp wines (not creamy) this wine is right up your alley. It perks up your taste buds and leaves your mouth watering for more!

I actually like it a little better as it warms up.(maybe 20-30 minutes out of the fridge) My suggestion is to taste it several times over the course of an hour or more without re-chilling it. If you are left uncertain about your preference, open another bottle and try again!

Hey Wooters-great to be back online with you~
In case you haven't figured it out, I absolutely love this wine. It is an easy drinking, crisp, virtually dry white wine. That being said, I also think it is one of the best constructed wines we make. The aromas are of spice and citrus and tropical things; and check out the little party that happens on your tongue mid-palate. It's floral...is that maybe lavender??? The finish is long without being cloying.

I'm tellin' ya folks, this one is a must buy!!

And for any of you in Neo-prohibitionist states that don't allow Wooting, send me an email. I'll make the offer good! ed@pedroncelli.com

Well, I'm off to the Taos Wine and Ski Fest (hey! someone has to do these things!) So I'll check back in a couple hours from now.

Thanks, and think of it this way: Who doesn't need more friends?!

Ed

It used to work just fine from a mobile device before they changed the way the mobile site works!

Thanks for your participation; I went in and may have the wifey buy more on her account.

Getting low on whites - now if only Amazon/Woot and the state of Minnesota could set aside their differences, real or perceived. This would have been a nice purchase to re-stock with. I am yet to be disappointed with a Pedroncelli wine.

One of the problems w/ the Pedroncelli wines I buy on Woot is that I usually kick myself for not buying more!!! In for 3.

BTW...I was introduced to Woot by Ed while in their tasting room. Can't thank him enough, been a great ride!

noted. I had this wine while breaking bread with Ed prior to it's initial release. no surprise, killer QPR. and it did change the more I drank it.

I don't want Ed to get a big (bigger) head, but this is some tasty juice.

Fantastic crisp white. I agree that it is the perfect dinner-prep wine. I visited the winery last fall and was generally impressed with most of their wines.

I purchased this wine during one of Pedroncelli's holiday deals and love both the red and white Friends blends. I gave a bunch away as gifts for Christmas. Sadly, I cannot purchase via Woot due to MN shipping issues, but at least I can buy direct from the winery when I run out. Some of their wines are even available in local wine stores, but I haven't seen the white blend yet.
