@Herbster, @Leah There are 3 rules in my mind about removing wines from Reserves:
- Mixed cases: If it went in as either a self-mixed 12 OR a pre-mixed case of 6 or 12 (as sold in an offer) you can only retrieve the whole case in one go.
- It’s irrespective of bottle size - half bottles count the same as 750ml and I think Magnums do too.
- Retrieving from single wine cases of 3, 6 or 12: It is usual to have a case delivered of 12 bottles minimum; or it makes sense to do it this way unless you are down to your last few bottles, I guess. Actually haven’t tried just taking 3 each of two wines - would be interesting to know!
So you can have all 12 of one wine, or 6 of one and 6 of another, or 11 of one and 1 of a second or 4 of 3 different wines, all making 12 in total.
That’s why having some half bottles in Reserves works by having the same number delivered, but less volume overall.
EDIT: Just tested only retrieving 6 bottles and got this message… “Part cases must be withdrawn in multiples of 12…”, so that answers that query.
