Bin series #4

binseries

#1

From Instagram. Any ideas? Lools red to me but cant work out that bottle shape! Rhône? Alsace?


#2

They look more like Alsace bottles… then it is Pinot Noir


#3

Yes, looks pretty dark but I can’t think of a red wine that goes in a flute (please educate me!)

Maybe a brown bottle?


#4

Education complete


#5

I guess there is a chance these are German bottles… than Dornfelder and Trollinger might also be contenders, although in Germany they normally use Rhone style bottles for reds…

edit…

… this of course is a sweeping generalisation… they actually use all sorts of bottles as @Embee rightly points out below…


#6

I will also just drop Marzemino del Trentino in the hat… though given #003 was Italian that is less likely.


#7

I too thought Alsace Pinot initially. However, the three wines that came before were all leftfield choices so I reckon you might have nailed it with a German Dornfelder. The few I’ve tried all came in flutes.

I wonder how long we’ll have to wait for the big reveal ? ( I don’t like secrets ! )


#8

yes, me neither… especially if there is no end in sight

hope we don’t have to wait till the Spring Press tasting in March (?)… by the way @Ewan are you going to pick names from a hat for that?


#9

All will be revealed… VERY soon! :smiley:

Excellent guesses so far… none are close, though! Keep guessing… if anyone can guess it, the Community can! :wink:


#10

I’m now thinking it might be a white !

Looking forward to finding out more.


#11

:zipper_mouth_face: Maaaaybe…
Any guesses what kind of white specifically?!


#13

Just looked at images of Txakoli but that seems to be bottled in green flutes.

The possibilities seem endless. Something Central European perhaps ?


#14

Not an “orange” wine by any chance?


#15

Maybe a pigato ? Or Arneis ?
I’ve really got no clue :rofl:


#16

That’s what I was going to suggest. But could also be a Spatburgunder from the Pfalz? They sometimes put it in a flute-shaped bottle.


#17

I think pinot noir doesn’t quite fit with the Bin series of wines


#18

Good point! :+1:


#19

Maybe a Gruner Weltliner??


#20

I’m now thinking an Albariño or vinho verde :thinking:


#21

Or an interesting Pinot Blanc…? (not a contradiction in terms!) :thinking:
