Bin #006?

It must be coming sometime soon, right?

(sorry!)

Wow, going back in time to plant a wine from North Africa to build the hype in the Bin Series is a stroke of marketing genius

So as the vintage of 1943 would have been harvested, Bordeaux was into its fourth year of occupation, facing chronic labour shortages and a rampant black market. I can see how conceivably the vintage of 43 might not have been released until 46 but I still find it stunning that TWS had a 43 vintage claret.

“The most successful of the wartime vintages” - according to Broadbent.

It would be interesting if labels still featured maximum retail prices today.

Sign of the post-Brexit times to come? :roll_eyes: Except 40 New British Pesos, of course…

What makes you think it’s past it? Just because the bottle next to it is 1943…

Being priced in shillings makes me think that it’s no Spring chicken :wink:

Nah, just part of the retro marketing. Besides which, I’m sure the Daily Mail will be campaigning to bring back shillings soon, if it isn’t already.

Maybe @suiko’s New British Peso is really the Old British Farthing?

Given that my wishful thinking about a Xinomavro turned out to be true, I am going with a Listan Blanco/Palamino Fino.

Yep. But as we know, it’s all about the branding :roll_eyes:

Hope you’re right, but i very much doubt it. The only producer TWS are working with in the Canaries is Suertes del Marqués, and i think their whites are way too out there!

I’m going with a syrah from Morocco … Alain Graillot ?

Something from Lebanon? Musar?

That was going to be my guess, but you got there first! After all, TWS carries his “tandem”. If you see what I mean.

Not sure Ouled Thalab make enough wine for a special bottling.

I’d go for a Swartland white field blend.

Didn’t TWS sell this at one time; I’ve certain I’ve had it?
