Bin Series #11

I finished my last bottle of Bin #10 last night. I figure that gives an opportunity to play that most delightful of games, guess the next one wrong.

So, speculation time! Will there even be one? What will it be? Where will it come from?

Here’s a reminder of what has come before.

I’m going to get the ball rolling and guess/hope for a rich, dark pink Rosé (and not just because I still miss that Careniña rosé that used to be on the list).

I’d love to see something from Toby. Ancient vine mountain mountain-grown Pais, maybe?

Vinified as a rose? :wink:

How about the lesser spotted value Bordeaux?

Maybe I should set up a bot that says this to every reply (except this would also drive me nuts very quickly!).

And crushed in ancient Corby trouser presses.

Proper English rosé then?

That would be cool! Esp as there isn’t any país in the mountains as far as I know!

Very ‘Bin series’

Barrel aged, old vine Sparkling Shiraz made in the traditional method with some very old tawny fortified stock used as the liqueur d’expedition… Just putting it out there :grin:

Screwcap red… my guess is less obvious, German, maybe a Portugieser.

I’ve thought in the past that the teaser pictures have been deliberately obfuscating the colour (usually meaning that whites look like reds in the pictures).

And so it all begins once more :rofl::rofl:

well, here’s a scientific-ish guess.

Apart from the Tasmanian one, all other Bin Series have been European, so that might point to a wine from New Zealand, South Africa or the Americas. But it’s Marcel’s patch, so either regional France, Rhone or Germany. Rhone is a bit obvious, and well explored. Germany has just seen a big release, so not an obvious source for a bin series right now. Regional France would seem most likely, as it is full of unusual and unexplored corners, weird grapes in weird places, producing quirky wines.

So my guess is Korean Aligote.

Alternatively, I did see in one of Marcel’s social media post that he grows vines in his back garden. Maybe he is trying to flog off some of his home-brew.

Or one of those Wilko kits.

Japanese Koshu. Fits the bill and I would be very intrigued.
