Naked Wine Australia offer - 12 bottles for $59 inc delivery

Naked Wine Australia offer - 12 bottles for $59 inc delivery | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

Do you know Naked Wines? They're a UK company that is trying to bring customers and wine makers closer together, cutting out a layer of two of the industry so that everybody gets a better deal.

 

They have a taster case on Scoopon (Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane only) that's $59 for a dozen wines including delivery. There's a real mix and they're from wine makers who they work with directly. Normally they box would cost over $140, so this looks like a real bargain.

 

I don't get any incentive for mentioning this deal and I have bought one for myself.

Te Kairanga Martinborough Pinot Noir for AU$12 a bottle.

Te Kairanga Martinborough Pinot Noir for AU$12 a bottle. | Wine in the World | Scoop.it

It's not often that I post up offers, but this one really is worthwhile at $12 per bottle (Aussie $).

 

OK, so it's not usually $35 like the advert says, more like $23, or even $20 on offer, but certainly not $12. So, it's around about half price, which is good, but I do hate the way that companies feel the need to exagerate the original price, as if we can't use Google.

 

So, what's it like? I have no idea, as I've never tasted it. Bob Campbell MW, who knows a bit about Kiwi wines, reviewed the 2009 and says: "Fresh cherry and plum fruit flavours with a hint of spicy oak. Appealing sweet fruit and a smooth texture are this wine’s greatest assets. Great value at this price [~$20]." Sounds like a Martinborough Pinot, rich dark cherries backed up with a touch of new oak. Yum.

 

The winery are currently on the 2010 vintage and this is the 2009, so it's probably a clearance line. That shouldn't be a problem with a Martinborough Pinot, as long as it's been stored well.

 

I've grabbed myself a case and maybe I'll find time to review it when it arrives.

 

Let me know if you decide to buy any. I don't get any referral fees, but I'd like to know.
