    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    Mine arrived in similar condition as per usual with DM premium wines, most are full of dust after being stacked on the shelves for god knows how long. I’ve opened one bottle earlier this week and it was surprisingly nicer than I was expecting (mixed reviews online). Not the most sophisticated CS...

    More pressure on TWE, should lead to further discounts to offload excess stock in the domestic market. https://apple.news/AWGalDpiNSbyXkqB0IKALnA

    This is the strength of this group. While Shiraz and CS remain most popular there’s plenty of info about for other verities. In fact @qaz idea of subdividing into categories such as Chardonnay or PN makes it easier for members to focus on their favourite grapes (or avoid the ones they don’t like).

    Agree with Bin 28 and 311 valuations, ok price for $30 but wasn’t cheap enough to entice me to buy, especially when so many better wines have been flooding the market heavily discounted this year. I bet Penfolds are hurting from Chinese wine ban and if it goes on for longer they’ll have to...

    Nice wines I have drunk recently - Red or White

    Dr. Edge Chehalem Mountains, from the Oregon USA series. Seriously good PN, on the light side but full of character. Perfect match with baked Camembert tonight.

    Absolutely! Wish we had such a good Argentinian restaurant in BNE.

    Qantas Wine latest offering

    Always worth to give them a call. A friend called to order some premium reds, was happy to pay full price yet was still offered 10% discount or extra bonus points and he is not premium member nor points club plus. I was also offered the extra 10% on few occasions this year and I’m not at the...

    Premium members get additional 10% off (or bonus points) but need to process the order over the phone.

    Richardson reserve, particularly Shiraz but also Cab Sav is very good. Don’t bother with anything else from them.

    Nice wines I have drunk recently - Red or White

    Mystery wine from TWC sold at 50% off. Classic MR which is probably the best compliment because the greatest Aussie Chardonnays normally come from there.

    Nice wines I have drunk recently - Red or White

    Dodgy Bros is nice, good value for money. I do remember thinking it was scored a bit too generously when drinking it few months back. Maybe needs more time in the bottle. What did you think?

    Nice wines I have drunk recently - Red or White

    Grenache time. Both wines are 2019 vintage, similarly priced and received high scores (Paralain 95 / Swinney 96+). Two very different styles. Paralian is more dark fruit driven such as blackberry, plums. Swinney is more savoury, earthy, definitely belongs to the newer style of Grenache making...

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    One of many too good to be true bargains offered and still to come this year. Red Queen RRP is generally very high but the 2014 vintage (which for some reason doesn’t feature on the winery’s award chart list) has been offered around $75 on multiple occasions. Still < $30 looks like great price...

    I’d say it’s risky to buy old wine from almost anywhere unless guaranteed to be stored at the winery all that time. Auctions are particularly risky as even people with the best intentions don’t always cellar their wines properly, not to speak of those who never bothered to do so in the first place.

    KrisFlyer 15% Transfer Bonus!

    Similar thoughts here. I have a bit over 1M KF, clearly don’t need any more miles I can’t use ATM but having said that I have no intention of using my credit card points for any other purpose but flying so would probably be tempted to convert if bonus offer was slightly higher...
