Interesting - 2013 says Medium term cellaring (up to 7 years) and 2015 says Long term cellaring (7 years or more)
Good pick up lucluc, I bought some to reminisce about a wine that is no longer a lineage wine for me (used to try and buy a few each vintage). I think those with longer memories reflect sadly on the time when it could be obtained much cheaper, not to criticise the deal at hand.I went back 5 years on the forum, cheapest with discounts I saw was $73-75 5 years ago, and $99.
Everyone jumped on Moss Wood 2012 here, but no one said a word about 2011 for $20 more. You could say certain vintages hold more value, or simply it's gone up in time.
$55 is a great price, I'm sure if they popped up everyone would jump on that. But, we can't really compare a deal years ago to what's available today.
I don't exactly know what you're trying to argue here. I'm not paying $199, I've paid $100 for a 15 year old wine I want to drink soon. I don't have a time machine, if so I'd happily buy it for $55.
Used cars are 20% more expensive, property has jumped 20% this year...I mean even aged wine goes up in value.
Just remember everyday at auction, or in store people pay over $150 for Basket Press and it's $75 as a member. You win some, you lose some.
Varies store by store in Melbourne. The 13 and 15 get different ratings at different places so hard to tell which is better. I'm now looking for a 14 and 16 to go on sale so I can have my 6 year vertical tasting sorted (already have 17 and 18 from deals at cellardoor.co).Looks like 2013 is not available (to me anyway)
