What's in your basket [July/Aug 2019]

weeklyshop

#21

Done. Thanks very much


#22

Due to a ‘temporary’ cash flow problem (houses, children etc) his lot has been through about 15 iterations as I’ve changed my mind and things have run out, but pay day tomorrow and it may finally be time to pull the trigger!


#23

We’ve all said it… I will try very hard not to in August… been a wee bit weak on the restraint front in July and I have nowhere else to (hide) keep TWS boxes…


#24

Yesbthey used to stock it and yes it is really good :+1:


#25

From quite a few people’s comments- sounds like the Langhe Bianco was a good bet, then! :yum:


#26

Well in 1994 my wife got me membership of the wine society and one of my first purchases was a case of 1992 Fonseca vintage port £19.50. Still 3 bottles left and local wine shop 2 years ago had it at £125. Now my excuse for wine purchases is preparing for retirement especially when 2017 port EP has drinking windows that but me at 71 to 101. Here is hoping I get allocated the 1/2 bottles I went for and I live to enjoy them :wink::wine_glass:


#27

Not a purchase, just a little raid on my L&W stash to plug some holes in the home stock (mostly big reds…) till the holidays.


#28

That Umathum looks good!


#29

That is my third bottle of six of the 2017 I picked up from TWS last year. Very happy so far and it is one of those roses that can be laid down for a few years.


#30

Be interested to know how that Querciabella 98 is? As I think you know, I’ve been slowly drinking my way through a half case of the 2011. Two bottles ago I thought it was probably peaking out, but the last one was better, more balance to it. Still a lot younger than the 98 though…


#31

I have just (in the last hour) taken delivery of an order which is partially for a tasting I’m doing at the end of next week. It came by DHL, I’m pleased to say on time and intact…

Pelerin Blanc Pays de Caux Chartreuse de Mougeres 2018 £7.25 1 Bottle £7.25
AL14171 The Societys Vin dAlsace 2017 £9.50 2 Bottle £19.00
AA2671 Bin #002 Zweigelt 2017 £8.95 3 Bottle £26.85
HU1421 Pinot Noir Ostoros 2017 £6.75 1 Bottle £6.75
BJ7351 Morgon Robert Debuisson 2016 £9.95 2 Bottle £19.90
GE12331 Spatburgunder Markgraflerland Martin Wassmer 2016 £14.50 1 Bottle £14.50

I also got another half case of this, which has gone into reserves (no space here at present). The last bottle I drank a week ago was soo good, I decided to get more while it’s there (seems to be decent stocks too).


#32

Minor catastrophe. Had my basket ready to press go today so I can get my box from the local Click & Collect spot, logged on and found two items sold out!

Stand by for updated order… :roll_eyes:


#33

Oh, I hate when this happens! :frowning:
Hope you have good alternatives in mind…?


#34

The wishlist overfloweth :wink:


#35

Happened to me far too often. I clearly don’t drink enough and order frequently enough!

Never mind half bottles do you suppose TWS might start selling by the glass? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: And I don’t mean only in the showroom!


#36

Deed done. Couple rosés on there. Really wanted a taste of the Society’s Lager but didn’t want to wait for the next batch so will see how long Summer holds out…


#37

And just over the minimum for free delivery, very well done that man :slight_smile:


#38

Unlike most on this thread it’s been a while since I placed an order and I’m nearly out of everyday bottles, so a few budget favourites and a few which have been recommended here on the community are on their way to me.

This and the Finca Munoz have become staples, although the 2015 isn’t quite up to the standard of the previous vintage imo.

Ultra budget offerings, this Victory Hotel and the Domaine Raynier. Both outstanding value.


Next a couple of community driven picks. I’ve rarely been impressed with U.S wines but I’ll keep on trying from time to time…

Sensible money nebbiolo to stop me drinking the expensive stuff when the Italian urge grips me.

I’m not a big drinker of whites but have a special place in my vinous heart for Gewurtz. A joy on a warm evening with a lightly smoked duck/chicken salad.


#39

A top up of halves and mostly everyday wines (with Bulgaria and Hungary featuring this time…)
