What's in your basket [March-April 2021]

The 2017 M-C Bürgergarten is one of the best dry Muscats I’ve had from anywhere. Think the Haart will be pretty good, will be interested to hear what you think.


You and @cerberus seem to agree on this (just saw the same wine is still available together with your review)… might need another bottle in that order…

Not a massive issue as it was just a “that might be nice to try” purchase but still a bit annoying. About the 4th time this has happened to me so clearly the message is: if you want it, take delivery ASAP.


That’s very irritating.

Felton Road update: after extensive searching over a period of a week and my refusal of a credit note, my mixed case was eventually found in a dusty corner of the warehouse.


Good news! Presumably it is therefore now safe to crack gin-based jokes, is it…?


Just the tonic I need after the week I’ve had.


After a small mixup over a click and collect order at Waitrose they gave us this by way of apology (rather unnecessarily, but hey…)


I was wondering what the final out come was. Glad its all worked out.

You’ve not tried it yet…

Nor have I passed any judgement🙄

That’s a real shame - I had a bottle recently and it was excellent, especially at that price. Instantly tried to order a case but greeted by the red box of despair. I do hope future vintages are restocked, especially with '15 and '17 being so good in the Cape.
That Cécillon Syrah is also incredible value.


Just arrived today:


Wines for the online tasting later this month, along with…

Couple of cheap right-bankers - the Grave is a delight every vintage, and I’m sure the '17 will deliver again.

My curiosity got the better of my wallet for the pinot - haven’t had a Central Otago in ages, looking forward to trying this.

And I bought the Exhibition St-Julien so I can leave a review of it under the Peyrabon.


Very good bottle the Glenelly…

Just picked up the last 2 bottles of the 2010 from the showroom


You weren’t tempted to try the ‘12 @Rafa?

Well I am but the 2010 is so good that I couldn’t resist getting these last bottles.
I don’t tend to drink Rioja but this is superb!

So when they sent me the Exhibition Rioja Reserva instead of the Ardanza 2010 and then told me it couldn’t be replaced, there were actually a few bottles hanging around after all…
