#TWSTaste: Two new summer rosés! Thursday 20th May, 8-9pm

We hope to see as many of you here as possible, to try these new wines together! :smiley:

Is there a prize if we guess correctly?

It’s going to be a rosé version of the Xinomavro Jeunes Vignes…

Close the competition now :sunglasses:

Please PLEASE tell me it’s The new vintage of Thymiopoulos Rosé Xinomavro? :heart_eyes::heart_eyes:

I’d take that, but I reckon two posters above may have already worked it out…

Oh, I won’t be buying any of that; my iron resistance is infallible.*

I had a great time on the alpine whites so looking forward to this too…even though I have to say rose isn’t normally my wine of choice (except on the two days of summer we get in the north east). I stand to be completely corrected…

I’ve been having some dreadful autocorrect typos recently and it appears to have struck you too. Bit bizarre to change to iron from supermarket value (see through) aluminium foil

Is it the Tempier Bandol Rose?

How do I order a bottle of wine of “TBA”?

You can’t yet, but it will go on sale with enough time to spare to get an order in.

If you want to order something now, set the delivery date for mid May (before the 20th), then you can add the mystery tbc (Xinomavro?) rosé to this order once it is on sale.

You see, the problem with information like this is I now can’t unsee it, and so will be front loading orders all over the place :roll_eyes:

I think the mystery second wine might be delayed a bit (we’ll let you know what it was supposed to be ASAP!), but I’m working on finding an alternative which I’m hoping to announce later today so you can get your orders in! :smiley:

Update:

So, although it’s not the original rosé we planned to feature in this tasting (as that’s been delayed by a couple of weeks) I’ve updated the event details above with this as our second rosé and I hope you’ll be just as excited to try it! :

A few of you mentioned the fantastic Greek Thymiopoulos rosé, and while that’s not available at the moment, this is an exciting new Greek rosé from Crete, and from a different producer to the Kompsos wines from Crete we enjoyed so much in our January tasting.

How does that sound?! :smiley:
