#61

Hello, 6 in Stainton. Glasses loaded with the white and keen to get going


#62

To anyone who has tried either/both of the other Bin Series wines - while we have 3mins to ourselves I’d also be curious to know how it compares in your opinion


#63

Hello @JayKay!! Great that you can join us - six of you?! Have you/are you eating? :smiley:

Who else is here and ready to taste some Fine Wine Trade Secrets?

  • Meeeee!
  • I’m just lurking

Had both. Loved the Zweigelt in particular, both good value. Felt that this was more impressive in that it gave that bit more unexpected bang for its buck!


#65

Of the 3 I think this is my fav. Big on flavour, very well balanced, brilliant VFM


#66

It’s in second place to the zweigelt for me byt GOLLY I liked it.


#67

phew! just made it in with a spot of impromptu road-mending and some standard horizontal rain … now set up with hastily decanted red and a pizza on the go


#68

Thanks to those helping with my Bin Series straw poll! I think this is a narrow 2nd behind the Bobal for me personally. Really glad to hear you like it


#69

I’m with Mr JayKay, my mam, my aunt and uncle and my mam’s best friend in a village near Penrith. We have eaten but have cheese and nibbles ready


#70

Yeah, we’ve got a bit of that going on north of Inverness right now!


#71

Welcome, all! I am so pleased you could make it. :smiley: Let’s start with The Mixup - I hope you’ve had a chance to read Ewan’s tasting notes above - let’s have a good old sniff. What are your first thoughts?


#72

I meant to save some dinner for these wines but I forgot…


#73

Burnt oil


#74

I was supposed to be catering for a group of intrepid canoeists … but they turned out not to be that intrepid so I’ve just got TWSTaste and Radio 4 keeping me company!


#75

Flowery


#76

Wow… some party…


#77

I first tasted this blind a few months ago and thought it was cider…


#78

YES! Kind of petrolly.

Also maybe some nettles and mint leaf…?!


#79

Peach, passionfruit


#80

Slovakia v Wales on for me
