What’s in your basket? - March 2020


#21

Vinissimus showing it as back in stock


#22

You are a total superstar!! Just ordered :muscle::grimacing::grimacing:! Thanks so much :wink:.


#23

Likewise, but still planning a case of white rioja to experiment with alternatives!


#24

Let us know which ones you went for :wink:


#25

Good morning Inbar hope you found your Mistral…we opened one last night, thoroughly enjoyed it but my wife and I agreed Tim Atkins 2027 end date might be a bridge to far. We’re going with 23 at best. That said it’s a lovely expression of GSM, light touch of farmyards…

Once again RFD ranges are to ambitious…


#26

I’ve tried a few alternatives to Tondonia (although it is really difficult to find a true alternative given the lengthy bottle ageing). I’ve not really got on with Abel Mendoza blancos, not really sure why but they don’t really hit the spot for me. Plácet Valtomelloso is very good and Allende has a very good rep. I love the CVNE Monopole Classico and many other regions in Spain are copying the ageing in used sherry barrels. My wine loving pal who has retired to Spain recommended this to me recently as being in that style but I haven’t bought one yet despite the great label.

Thanks for the recommendation, I have a coupe of bottles I bought a few years ago of CVNE monopole classico but have yet to drink them, I cant even remember if they were TWS… possibly not. I do think this style of wine is a winelovers wine though but the fact they are difficult to get hold of clearly shows they are in demand.


#28

Yes, TWS did stock Monopole Classico - I bought mine from them. Another white Rioja producer I am waiting to try is Olivier Riviere whose La Bastid Blanco is in my case winging its way to me from Vinissimus. He also does a sherry barrel aged white Jequitiba (?) which is on my “to try” list. Tondonia blanco reserve demand (and now increasingly Gravonia) seems to have gone mad in the last few years. Maybe people switching from white burgundy?


#29

Dujac 2017’s have arrived, at pretty acceptable pricing compared to the wider market


#30


Wild Pixie for a few years time, the others in hope of an early summer… its harder to be an optimist, but rewarding.
Looking forward to the frappato. We spent some time around Menfi a couple of years ago during a grand tour of Sicily and enjoyed frappato’s essence of summer.


#31

The 2017 Dujac is really priced incredibly well vs the market. I’m not a huge Pinot drinker but the opportunity to score some bottles from a top producer is one I could not let slip. These will sleep in my wine fridge for some time!


#32

Emergency preparations in case of any need to self-isolate, or any inability to get to the showroom for whatever reason.

There are no pdf’s unfortunately but this seemed to be the only way I could copy the list, and can’t edit at all.


#35

Nice bin end harvest!


#36

Better than taking all the bogroll off the supermarket shelves, I say :+1:


#37

Yes, and I made sure there was still plenty left for everyone else!


#38

Not TWS (sorry), but just had an email for another Waitrose 25% off when you buy 6+ on all wines…2001 Musar @£21 a bottle anybody…?


#39

Well, it’s a lean month and I’ve just realised that we’re almost out of non-posh reds, but I’ve got some credit on the account so gone for this:

For me, it’s some new vintages of old favourites and some brand new wines as well. Looking forward to trying the Cape Heritage Blend :+1:


#40

Last three (2016) bottles in Waitrose in Hove… yippeee! Picked two, and left one for @Bargainbob, just in case… :smiley:
