Any one tried this?
Couldn't really find any info apart from CM. Seems quite decent?

It caught my eye, so I ordered a 6-pack yesterday based on the Halliday review, but I won't be trying any for a few years.

I was looking at it as well as my ears always prick up at a mention of a good McLaren Shiraz, however "this medium-bodied wine' phrase in the description stopped me in my tracks.

Any links to a JH review?

"Very sophisticated and luxuriant packaging, the bottle, label and wax capsule all contributing. McLaren Vale is arguably best known for the generosity of its red wines, but this wine has a different personality, with finesse and lightness to its black and purple fruits, spices to the fore, and a touch of regional chocolate. Supple tannins seal the deal."

Mike Farmilo is a former maker of Penfolds Grange, St Henri and Bin 707 and twice winner of the Jimmy Watson Trophy.

I'm not 100%< he's the wine maker for this wine tho. Info via Google says he's the lead wine maker elsewhere.

$50 off, + 20% CB may be worth a shot.

Thanks very much for the notes, perhaps not exactly my style of McLaren Vale shiraz as I prefer more fuller bodied expression of the variety, but sounds pretty good nevertheless.

Ya, I was thinking it might be similar to Cordelia - another one they had.
But from JH review below it seemsa little different and/or more elegant.
Worth trying with the $50 discount I guess. Thanks

I bought Cordelia from DM couple of years back as a secret deal $30 a bottle, still have a couple left. It is a quite rich plush and concentrated shiraz, would definitely get it if it was similar to Cordelia - funny enough the same wax enclosure.
