The South African section of my cellar has been hit hard this past year with many bottles coming of age to drink so a mixed case to bolster my inventory level a bit:

4 x 2018 Hamilton Russell Vineyards Chardonnay
2 x 2014 Kanonkop Paul Sauer
2 x 2014 Anwilka Stellenbosch
2 x 2007 Klein Constantia Vin de Constance
2 x 2015 Klein Constantia Vin de Constance

Perhaps I’m not the only one in need of an intervention

Funny you mention this. When I posted about it I had just bought two bottle. I forgot about the other three I ordered from another retailer. We are ordering pizza tonight so I’m baby-killing one and will post my thoughts later. I’m here for you.

Please do post notes! I’m curious as I also have two 2015s but have never tried the wine as I purchased those a couple of months ago.

You can add to my intervention.  Just bought 2 boxes of Sine Qua Non Estate wines from my allocation and wish listed a set of Estate magnums.

Haven't gotten my annual maybe next year letter from Manfred yet

either way nice to  see at least some of us still buy and talk about drinking wine here

Ok boomer.

I'm trying.  I'm really trying.  I want people to come here and talk about wine.

Agree as much as I dislike Trump, moaning and bitching about it here all day is a complete waste of time. And it’s destroying this place. Kind of ironic that so many complain about him destroying the country and they are destroying this board talking about him

Finally got my first SQN offer after waiting 9 years.  Especially happy it was their EBAs

2016 Raul Perez, Bierzo, La Vizcaina, El Rapolao

 

Give credit where credit is due. But good purchase on this one, can’t want to try his 2016s

Credit for what?

I introduced you to his wines. Btw, I had the rapolao tonight and it was very nice, more elegant than his 2015.

Umm no. Futronic opened one with me at least a year before you ever mentioned them to me.

Good to hear about the Rapolao.

On Sunday I was this close to doing some last minute bidding on winebid.

Then yesterday I added a bunch of wine to my cart on K&L's site. Walked away before buying.

Did the same thing again today on a winery's website.

My last purchase was on Jan 27th, Berserker's Day.  

22 days and counting. 💪🏼

Could not resist. Sadly the only bottle there was.

$149?  Great buy!

I believe that’s the discount, not the sell price. I did a double-take when I first saw it. 

Yeah I was like wow. A good buy!!

Oooooooops!  

Yeah but $349 CAD is exceptional. That's $265 USD.  W-S low is at JJB for $295 USD. For us Canadians, with shipping, that would equate to $400 CAD.  And unless you're able to claim it as one of your two duty-free bottles, you'll pay another $200 in tax and duty.
