López de Heredia Viña Tondonia Reserva, Rioja 2005


#1

TWS £24.00 - Costco £19.99


#2

Costco is phoenomenal on price right now ! It was selling Guigal Côte de Rhône less than TWS and selling D’Arenberg Dead arm less than trade prices . Also the cheapest place to buy Kung fu girl Riesling. I honestly don’t know how they’re doing it but I’m glad :grin:.


#4

Is this real???


#5

But of course :wink:


#6

It’s actually good!


#7

Cool label - what sit taste like?


#8

Off dry, stone fruit, nice acidity. The 2017 is sweeter than previous vintages, I think.


#9

It’s great , well made . Good acidity , off dry , if you haven’t tried it yet definitely do :+1:


#10

Well I never… what made you try it in the first place? Although I guess it’s so intriguing, you would just have to try one bottle, just in case… Just goes to show how daring we wine lovers are!


#11

@VinoVeritas, I had heard about it and saw it in an enomatic machine in Newcastle and tried it ! Costco were selling it for £10 :wink:


#12

How am I supposed to spend less on wine when there is Viña Tondonia in the world?!?!!

Wow, Costco have the Meerlust Rubicon 2014 for under 20 quid as well. I need to keep an eye on that shop…


#13

Never even knew they existed! It was probably better to leave it that way.
By golly they got a Zind-Humbrecht Riesling for £13.34 (love the 0.34p)… hubby is not going to like this new development! :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#14

Same here… …


#15

Costco is a dangerous place. It’s extremely easy to go for a few basic essentials and come back having spent hundreds of pounds on things (including wine bargains) you never intended to buy.


#16

Sounds like my average trip to IKEA! :grin:


#17

Its very similar, apart from the added room for error. At IKEA you end up with candles and pillows. At Costco it can rang from an 8 pack of steaks to an enormous flat screen TV or full size hot tub. Not, I hasten to add, that I have ever bought either of the latter…


#18

If you live near Milton Keynes it’s quite possible to hit both IKEA and CostCo in one trip. Assuming there’s room left in the car and sufficient sedatives on hand :grimacing:


#19

I recently left with a wine fridge :rofl:!


#20

Now I’ve heard everything!! :+1:


#21

They also have a fantastic red wine called Bastide Miraflors at about £10. Had a 94 point score from Parker with a standout review so can be hard to get as it flies off the shelves.
