Do you get it?

This wine’s label… a dress unzipping.
Unreserved you say.
After this wine the world awaits.
Really?
How different is this from Bud Lights’ campaign: “The perfect beer for removing ‘no’ from your vocabulary for the night.”
Well this is a tad more nuanced – but the message is more or less the same.
Cheap white wine and earthly delights will follow.
Were this wine as good as these earthly delights. This wine is perfectly unremarkable. I’m drinking it very well chilled and dreading the moment the “flavour” opens up. Even over chilled it has a bit of a bite to it though.
The back label has a big bold statement of the “Tasting Notes.” They are… Apple, Citrus, Peach and Full Moon.
Well, I hope it’s not the full moon you get when you unzip that dress that’s hinted on the label. Or are they pants?
A full moon indeed.
This is another cynical “Canadian” wine made from imported and domestic wines. It is passable but just that. It is uninteresting except that I can fulminate on the label and the marketing.
I feel that I need some decent wine.
