Not sure whether you more experienced wine drinkers / deal hackers will think this is a good offer, but I was browsing through Dan's cellar release list and picked up some Wynns white label shiraz 2013 as an everyday quaffer. Not cheap at $20 pb, but it's aged and Mike Bennie gave it 93 on Wine Front, which was enough for me to pull the trigger.

I know this wine as the beige label.

Around $10 for a current release is my buy in price for the beige label.

This wine easily cellars for a decade. I remember a previous Halliday review of this wine which stated "10+ years will not hurt this wine"

FC have the 2009 for $19, or $18 in 6's, seemed to be a good year. would be cheaper with SB, flybuys and current codes (little birdie)

Anyone else tried with this wine? Took delivery of 2 cases during the week and cracked open a bottle yesterday. Very fruit, almost fruit juice like (ribena?), complete lack of any sort of complexity. Also, despite the bottle indicating its 14.5%, I'm convinced there's no alcohol content (~1/2 bottle down and no effect).

Keen to hear others thoughts on this one but a very odd/confusing drinking experience (even more surprising given a Barossa).

I would contact CM and return the purchase. I think Duval made this exclusively for Woolies

Any idea? Honestly $27 down from $150 sounds like a joke.

I don't mind some of their wines, but not worth $100-150rrp

I'll pass 👍
Way over priced. Would not pay more than $30

Anyone know this? I'm starting to go off the vale, but can always be tempted by old Grenache.

Sounds like Curtis Limited release Grenache.

Personally I would hunt premium Clarendon Grenache for that price that sometimes pops up for sale.

Not a huge fan of Grenache personally but was told by a person in the wine industry that Clarendon Grenache (Blewitt Springs I think) is iconic and to die for.

Yeah, I think it is.

I've tried the 2017, it's good!

I like Grenache, does premium Clarendon Grenache pop up often? I'm down for that.
Nick's have a type for $28, Dan's have another for $75. In not sure what is what tho.

Was offered this week at Langtons for $25 as a mystery deal I think.

I personally think it would be superior to Curtis however this is my opinion only and YMMV

This was from my broker there "
2013 Clarendon Hills Clarendon Grenache, McLaren Vale - $25 bottle. RRP $55.

Minimum order 6 pack. Orders over $300, Freight free.

95 Points, James Halliday:


Deep, bright colour, very rare for 3yo grenache, indeed for grenache of any age unless it be Clarendon Hills; the palate is full, supple and round, with red fruits in the ascendant, floral notes slipping in behind. Has all the structure and ripeness one could wish for. Cellar to 2028."

I'll keep an eye out for it, I'll give it a shot.

Must be a different one.

You might be in luck if you are keen.
They are back in stock from Langtons albeit I was told only about 40+ bottles or so left from my broker
This is the Clarendon Grenache one though.
