Happy Bin Day everyone!
Place your bets ladies and gentlemen…
You running a book ?
English-made (possibly not grown) early ripening Pinot. Maybe as a rose.
Bit early in the year to offer a rose maybe? Who knows…
Plagerising @HBlackburn’s research entirely, a red english Meunier made by Sergio from Blackbook winery.
So its not the Cazaux…
I love their Chardonnay
I thought you were replying to @MarkC for a second then
A final guess… German Dornfelder (Marcel involved, and French would be too obvious)
Syrah from Martin Wassmer… there! Wishful thinking in action
Nah… I’m thinking those are landscaping granite chips, as in: TWS gravel by the main entrance. A red herring maybe?
Whilst there’s plenty of granite in the UK, I cant think of any that coincides with vineyards… unless there are vineyards in Cornwall?
Maybe… S.A. Pinotage? (have we had that yet?)
I’d love that but it seems unlikely no? Aren’t the bin series typically an unusual grape or unusual place or both?
What about a Lebanese Rhône blend?
I’m going to bet on a rare(ish) South West France appelation or grape.
A Negrette, Jurançon Noir, or Duras.
The excellent Camel Valley.
Don’t know their soil composition though.
Edit: Who have won awards for their sparklers - don’t know what would be in it for them with a Bin Series wine though?
Similar to Thymopolis with the de-risking a new Cuvee?
Either that or the cynic in me says their sales may have dropped due to lack of visitors/trade.
But in any event, just so I don’t come across as curmudgeonly, their loss would be our gain, as their wines are generally pretty good (best ‘British’ wine I’ve had, at any rate).
