All-New All-Different Wine.Woot Details

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.

You missed it! But Today's Woot is waiting!

Malbec is a type of wine. "Mal bec" is French for "evil beak."

So, which do you prefer? Would you like to enjoy a glass of tasty red wine or face the wrath of a mystical demon bird named Evil Beak? Of course, you could always choose both. I mean, if you're going to face off against a mystical demon bird, you're probably going to need a glass of wine after.

We’ve travelled long to find the path of least resistance, enabling us to show you great quality at great value for money. Ad Hoc are “go-to”, dependable wines for any occasion, as characterful as their labels.

2012 Ad Lib Avant Gardening Malbec, Frankland, Western Australia
Earthy and savoury on the nose with tobacco notes. The spicy, earthy herbs for this variety coat the palate for a balanced finish. A distinctive varietal character brings very deep inky wine with moderate tannin and plum-like notes. The juicy fruit flavours are finished with light violet aromas. Ripe, supple tannins and light oak influence supporting the palate. The wine is complex and integrated, due to the strong fruit influence.
Drink with: Rich seafood dishes

The Vintage/Winemaking: Western Australia was warm and dry. Even ripening produced classic varietal definition, very intense flavours and soft, gentle acidity. Selected yeasts and fermentation methods and very gentle treatment of the fruit were employed. Extraction was soft. Following pressing, the wine was aged in 5-7 year old oak and bottled after 5 months.

Winery Details

Middleton Family Wines

Rick Middleton
Paso Robles & Central Coast, CA

Our family has been working the land since 1898, when we started a lumber business in Aberdeen, on the coast of Washington State. We began with lumber and forestry, and have thoughtfully and gradually expanded our family business to include table grapes, wine grapes, and wine. Today our businesses are at home in Hoquiam (Washington – next door to Aberdeen), Walla Walla (Washington), Delano (California), and Paso Robles (California).

Because we’ve had four generations in the family business, we’re interested in building things that will last, for the fifth, sixth, seventh generations, and beyond.  Our wine business includes three wineries: Cadaretta (Walla Walla Valley and Columbia Valley), Clayhouse (Paso Robles and Central Coast), and Buried Cane (Washington State).

The Clayhouse label and brand celebrate a historic home at our estate vineyard near Paso Robles. That 150-year-old adobe structure – the Clayhouse itself – still reminds us of the time when grapes were first planted in this area. The Clayhouse, which we’ve carefully restored, is really the ideal symbol for our vineyard and winery. After all, like the adobe, our wines are created from the earth, cultivated by hand, and nurtured by family traditions.

For the Middleton family, those traditions and deep passion for agricultural businesses go back more than four generations.

Today, Clayhouse Wines extend that proud family legacy with a selection of exceptional wines, all crafted by hand in a refined, elegant style that reflects the unique character of Paso Robles and the depth of flavor that the Central Coast imparts.
