Haha, fair enough @szaki1974! :smiley: Maybe we should go Burgundy first, and fizz the week after - hopefully by then we’ll have some good news to celebrate! :smiley: #endoflockdown? :pray:

Robert_mcintosh you’re the first to say cheers tonight, bless you my son! Cheers :wine_glass:

The Society’s Rioja Crianza 2016.

It’s 7/10 but wicked value.


#486

I will accept the decision made by the crowd.

Key word there is generally I think Mike! :rofl::rofl:


#488

I’m so glad.

It really has been an amazing night - I’m bowled over by the response! I’ll announce details of next week’s event tomorrow - I hope you can all join us next Thursday! :smiley:


#489

What do you do to try and get rid of the vinegar smells? Do you think they affect the wine very much?


#490

I have an unopened half case. Sounds like I no rush?


#491

The Society’s Rioja Crianza 2016. Another good 7/10


#492

wash it properly… :wink:

Seriously I do get what @Mike refers to… I do rinse it before use.


#493

Thanks @laura - a great night amidst a challenging week.


#494

We agree with your point and @VinoVeritas, we have plenty of time so we can space it out! Burgundy next week and fizz the week after!


#495

Thanks. I’ll keep trying to keep wine for a week. Might get there some day…Very handsome copper, good conversation piece.


#496

Sir! You do me an injustice, sir! I go over the one glass maybe a couple of times in a month. I have always been a slow drinker.

(But I’ve got through two generous glasses tonight - and, you know what, I could easily have another… but I won’t).


#497

I did a fair amount of home brewing a few years back so I generally fill up the belfast sink take apart the eto dunk it in and throw a lot of the brewers cleaning powder in. That gets rid of the vast majority of the smell.

To be fair even when a bit smelly I haven’t noticed it once the wine is poured. It just annoys me. My decanters don’t get the same thing but then they don’t have all the same moving parts.


#498

Thanks so much everyone, this has been a really brilliant evening! So nice to chat about fun stuff and everyone be so positive! Makes a much needed change to the recent norm! Cheers all, you all rock!


#499

Thanks everyone, great company, great tasting, some very great wines out there.

My Beronia Reserva 2014 gets a 6 from me. Could comfortably do a few more years, improving all the while, just not my favourite style

edited to add vintage

Had/have similar. Find that allowing top section to dry on its side seems to work. But Mrs KW keeps standing it up !


#501

My son said never to wash with soap so I haven’t. Haven’t noticed a vinegar smell or taste. I leave to dry for 1-2 days before putting back togethe.r

Well done Freddy and all the WS staff
