Muga Reserva Rioja 2015

tws-offers

Hi Rich, you just put in a large number of bottles or cases and the system says something like “sorry could only put x in your basket”


#22

Absolutely genius


#23

Can’t take credit for that, saw it on one of the "old timers’ posts on here. :rofl:


#24

i’ve had the 2014 and it’s excellent.
had their top cuvee at christmas prado enea - world class


#25

282 cases left, I’m going to have a few bottles but as has been said before, a 12 bottle case is just a bit too much given all the EP campaigns right now.


#26

217 left now, I have a bottle coming with my next delivery, hoping that I can taste that before I take the plunge. But stocks are moving fast.


#27

Would it be that difficult for the website to list stock levels?


#28

So as there isn’t much left of this, I’m going to bang 6 in reserves and make up a mixed case , any recommendations fromyou wise men and women as to what I should make the remaining 6 up with ?


#29

Guess it depends on when you’re planning on taking them back out.

My plan is often to go for three cheaper-but-ageworthy bottles, for example this:

(I was also going to suggest the Tahbilk Marsanne, but it doesn’t seem to be around at the moment.)

Then complete the dozen with three premium zingers, to balance it out :+1:


#30

I was doing similar with 6 from the Rhone 2017 stocks, but just decided to have the 6 Rhone delivered. I am hoping to hang on and taste the Muga before stocks run out. Went for these 2 -

Crozes-Hermitage Les Papillons, Domaine Gilles Robin 2017
Vacqueyras Blanc Les Clefs d’Or, Clos des Cazaux 2017

What about some Riesling?


#31

I have a case of 12 in reserves :+1:, thanks @japcraw, I have a bottle of the clefs d’Or so I’ll open it and see what it’s like so that’s a potential thanks.
@Herbster, tbh I wasn’t blown away by the society’s hunter valley but something along that price range is worth looking at so thanks :pray:


#32

I would be very interested in your opinion, likewise for the Blau :laughing:


#33

How about these lovely wines, all with similar dates to the Muga… Not esp. cheap though.



I can vouch for the Valpollicella - excellent. The other two are in the wish list…


#34

All look great thanks @VinoVeritas :wink:


#35

For anyone “humin an hawin” only 208 bottles left.


#36

202 :sweat_smile:, I’m testing the “one entry per person” for the golden bottle and decided to have them delivered instead of keeping in reserves :blush:.


#37

Hope they don’t disqualify you :rofl: I have cancelled Christmas and put a case in reserves.


#38


#39

I have a couple of bottles on order; I struggle to walk past a good Rioja order. I’m beginning to miss them on my extended French stay. The French really aren’t keen on selling any non French wine! :smiley:


#40

I recall the 2012 being pretty good… but I only brought 2 and I’ve drank them already. Maybe this is an opportunity to have some reserves as I’m yet to utilise that service :grin:
