    I think most of those wines have been asked/answered here previously in the thread. is there a specific one you wanted to know about?

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    I bought three cases at full price. If it really is that good, not fussed with paying a few bucks more.

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    I didn't find the 2013 particularly approachable (tried a couple of bottles last year). It seems to have a decent structure, at and $12 (I got mine from CrackaWines rather than DM), it's throw away money. Maybe it'll get better in a few years. Maybe it'll go down the sink. There's so many good...

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    Something can be a secret selection without anything wrong with it. This wine does have something wrong with it, hence why it is a secret selection. Really hard to understand what you’re disagreeing with.

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    I’m saying that there is something wrong with it, hence helping explain why it’s a secret selection. Not the other way around.

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    +1 Not sure these will ever come into balance (and I guess the need to offload these as secret selections etc.). I’ve put a few away to see how they go, but I wouldn’t be rushing out to buy them.

    I think you are better off sticking to Barossa stuff, then mucking around with Yarra Valley or WA stuff.

    It's TWE's "Family and Friends" site. You need to be invited. They let existing members send out invites every so often. Or go to one of the TWE tasting events and you can sign up then.

    Wendouree allocations and general discussion

    Not really a "rip off". If Wendouree sold through retail, the price would be $80+, and the cellar door price would be $80+ as well (so as not to undercut the retail channel).

    Vinomofo Wine Deals

    Agree with RB re trusting wine competition scores: always look for additional scores. Re European vs. Australian scores, typically 90 in Europe is a 93-95 here (depending on the Aus reviewer). Scores tend to be much tougher over there than here.

    Qantas Wine latest offering

    Katnook and Forest Hill offerings look overpriced IMHO, even with the bonus points...

    Score appears to be from the June edition of Decanter magazine, not the Decanter Wine Awards.

    That doesn’t seem like a ‘problem with Cellartracker’

    Grays had the 2014 at $33, and the stuff on Langtons has been going for $30-33

    Dan Murphy's and Other Wine Deals

    The 2013 is very tannic. 2014 seems much better, and can be had for not much more.

    Suggest me a Shiraz budget around $150

    1860s Vines is certainly cellerable. But there is so much great cool climate Syrah out of Victoria, I’d go for that. Petaluma makes a great Bordeaux blend: had a 1998 and a 1997 over the past twelve months.

    Suggest me a Shiraz budget around $150

    For that budget, you have lots of options... - Standish (any) - Mollydooker Carnival of Love - Elderton Command - Kaesler have a few options - Yalumba Octavius I'd say the Torbreck's and Elderton's are probably the easiest to obtain

    Vinomofo Wine Deals

    I don't think you'll find $50 common. Since I started using CellarTracker ~5 years ago, I've bought 45 bottles of Meshach, at an average cost of $66. $50 is possible, but not common. $65-70 is a far more common 'good deal', and I've paid up to ~$80 for the better vintages. The 2012 got pretty...
