    Saw the secret shiraz deal in the other thread and thought it's a good deal so I've ordered one case.
    I have no room left in the fridge and only a few days until the delivery arrives so better get down to work :D

    This is confusing if this is Essenze Pinot Noir.
    Listed at DM for $60/bottle but can be had for well under $20 elsewhere.

    This wine is pretty scarce online and I haven't been able to find it at anywhere close to $20.
    Can you post a link, thanks ?

    I also bought a doz of the Grown Label - $26.00 less 13% = $22.62 IMCAC - seriously good value at that price.

    I don't know about any "flagship" Essenze but at amatos.com.au/Shop/Search/essenze/Essenze+Pinot+Noir+Central+Otago
    it's only $12.99. Bottle photos looks the same.

    Note: New here so cannot post link.

    I'd say that they are different wines

    Re: Vinomofo Wine Deals

    The Dan Murphy secret selection Pinot Noir is the EsseNZe Flagship Central Otago Pinot Noir. Does anybody have any experience of this? I am seriously considering it plus the wolf blass.

    I agree. No vintage listed, different label.

    Great thread.
    Is the Wolf Blass Brown Label definitely screw cap?
    It says so here, but I am aware of certain practices where some of the allocation for a different market is cork.. and one reason why it is cheap as a secret offer, is that they are getting rid of the cork stock.

    The website specifically states:

    'Closure Screw Cap'

    I'm not concerned either way and in fact would actually prefer cork.

    What is IMCAC?
    Shipping cost is $7 for me as no pickup available local DM.
    Wait for better offer.

    If My Calculations Are Correct - make sure you alert us all if you see a better offer than this won't you please?

    Had a call from DM today regarding the Secret Shiraz. They said there has been a huge response and deliveries were delayed by up to a week, as more stock had to be sourced from Victoria. They wouldn't confirm it was the Wolf Blass - but there is no doubt in my mind.

    Just back from Costco Lidcombe. Very very quiet.
    Saw a guy loading trolley with all displayed stocks of Tatachilla Foundation Shiraz for $29.99.
    Didn't get to see vintage. DM have 2009 vintage for $46.55
