    Agreed. One of the most underrated wines. Pure dark chocolate in a glass.

    I suppose there is only one way to know what it’s really like! Might take a punt myself too.

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    You can rely on Sam Kim’s ratings at your own peril. And on JH as well as far as I am concerned. But hey, each to his own. I much rather rely on real people opinions here who ACTUALLY drink wines for their opinions rather on those guns for hire. Just a personal preference.

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    I received the tasting notes in the mail and confirmation of my allocation. Shiraz pressings and Alan's Cabernets were scaled down (I got 3 + 6 vs 6 + 9 originally requested that actually worked out fine). I called them up and ticked what was left available. So much for the China factor - it...

    Australian Wine Startup - Investment Opportunity

    I think this is more a function of the strong equity markets/excess liquidity around the globe rather than on the merit of this particular business idea. People are seen taking on excessive risk and throwing money at anything so comes as no surprise they raised money relatively easily. In a...

    I believe that @kevviek had some in the past and reported a positive experience. They are also frequently offered on VM in a sixer.

    Completely understandable. I liked the fact that they don’t release them as young like we do in Australia.

    I travelled in St-Emillion and did some wine tasting. I certainly prefer an Australian take on the Bordeaux blend than the Bordeaux blend. Maybe it has got to do with the local hospitality!

    It depends. Bin 8 is made to be consumed when you buy it, not cellared for an extended period of time. if you are planning to drink it sometime soon then yeah. Not sure how it is going to age. And if you like this particular blend of course. Buying just for the sake of the discount would be...

    I see that Dan Murphy has listed a bunch of new wines in their clearance section. Most likely as the result of the corporate action pertaining Cellarmasters rather than EOFY specifically.

    It is a bit of a GWD gimmick, I just used a four digit random number starting with 1 and it worked.

    Vinomofo Wine Deals

    I do have and tried both actually. Incidentally they seem to use the same extremely heavy bottle (weighs just under 2kg) and using the same wax enclosure. As to what I would buy to put away really depends on your preference. I thought The Thing was more on savoury side and in a hindsight I...
