Hmmm, we can see the leaves and grapes.

Surely with the combined knowledge here we can cobble together an educated guess (note, my knowledge and education will not contribute towards a correct answer)

I think it might be a wine*.

*it might be just grape juice.

When I search that image I get Muscat Bleu.

Hmmm. That really would be so far left field Karl Marx would be calling it Socialist.

Do we need a new thread to start the next Bin Series discussion?

Thanks @laura

Blanc de noirs anyone?

Another obscure Eastern European to hype up no doubt.

Ah yes… and a tiny bit of Noble Rot on some of the grapes. Or could be grey mould. It’s either Switzerland, Belgium, or High Wycombe…

I cant see ANY wine from Switzerland being affordable. So will go for… China.

Have we had an Austrian red yet? If not, that’s my guess. Lagrein is my second guess.

TBH, I’m hoping it’s an ancient, recently rediscovered Georgian variety, and sells out in the first three minutes after the email is sent out.

I’m not sure I’ll buy any, but it would interesting to find out from what distance you can hear blood vessels pop.

China. Interesting. Their time is coming in wine, like it or not.

I had a truly awful bottle of ‘great wall’ red a few years ago, brought it back in my hand luggage - TCA writ large. The other bottle is still gathering dust in the garage, the experience of the first bottle was that bad.

I don’t doubt there’ll be plenty of disasters along the way - of which you are, unfortunately, part of the forlorn hope finding that out - but I just can’t see how a country with such diverse geography, and one that is on the up economically, won’t eventually master it.

Looks like Syrah.

Touriga Nacional? I am not an expert so this is wishful thinking on my part.
