I’m going with Rose. Not based on anything.
Oooh! A Tavel, perchance…?! They often come in an elongated bottle? Now that would be exciting.
Some great guesses!
I’m not revealing what it is yet, but I will reveal the vintage…
Does this change anyone’s guess?
Something rare like Ramisco from Portugal?
I just remembered that some Hungarian wines from North Balaton (Somlo, Badacsony etc.) region are also bottled in flutes. Might be a Juhfark or Harslevelu maybe… or a Furmint (?) - these will all age, too.
Hmmm. 9-10 years is a good period for rieslings. Maybe one, though where from???
2011 potentially very nice for German riesling, but again, is this what the Bin series is all about?
I thought it was was supposed to be introducing us to off the beaten track varietals…
I’m leaning more towards @szaki1974’s suggestion of something Eastern European. No idea about the ageing potential, but this:
comes in a very unusual hued bottle. Something similar might give this darker appearance in the original photo
Hopefully TWS have sourced something lovely and interesting - a parcel that’s been lurking in a corner of the winery in a lonely barrel waiting for an interested party to show an interest.
@Laura, we need more clues
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ…Oh! is it that time already???
obaideh / merwah?
I’m guessing it’s something Portuguese like Castelão (which I definitely didn’t just look up).
No, but it’s made me delete my guess
Portugal is possible as they use flutes (sometimes). I’m sure its going to be a rare-ish or obscure variety or from an unfamiliar place.
Love a good Godello but haven’t had any with age on it.
Ooohh…. Possibly a Clare or Eden valley Riesling ?
Please be a Juhfark.
I’m going jufark too.
Someone here has guessed correctly!
But who?! I’ll be revealing the next Bin Series wine later…
Funny you should mention that - it’s on my to-do list for today!
ooooooooh! the tension! This better be good!
Well, I thought you guys should be the first to know…
Are you ready…?
Our next Bin Series wine…
guessed correctly by @szaki1974…
A 2011 Furmint! It’s a really exciting, one-off find for us, a genuinely tiny parcel too, and (IMO) a ridiculously low price, so you’ll have to be fairly quick off the mark!
It’s going live in the last week of Feb. Hope the news lives up to the anticipation!
