Halliday gives it 87:
"Traditional savoury/earthy Hunter style, but not typical of '14 - just not the full fruit integrity of the vintage. Useful, but no more than that. "
U gotta wonder the DM rating panel team 95pts up in lights lol

Halliday reviews these days arent far off nonsense either. 87 points is probably 82 from anyone worth their salt.

Looks like it is over 'This code did not match any active gift card or discount. Was it entered correctly? '

Some interesting things back up at DM.

Grant Burge 2009 Shadrach Cabernet Sauvignon:

Murray Street Vineyards (MSV) Benno Shiraz Mataro 2005:

Alcorso Pinot Noir Tasmania 2011:

I think the following are from MSV as well, but not sure:


Btw, I also had a bottle of the Rose Kentish NV sparkling shiraz ordered earlier this month. I can say that I did not like it and thought it was way too stingy for a $60 bottle of wine. The Best's sparkling shiraz is much better at around the $25 price point. The search for a cheap Joseph alternative continues...

Just opened a star lane 2016 merlot. This one is definitely richer and oakier than the 2014/2015 vintages, which seemed to take more of a sour cherry/red fruit flavour. The nose right out of the bottle is very closed but does seem to have some kind VA/alcoholic lift. In the mouth there is dark plum fruit and a fair bit of charry oak providing grippy tannins. Very interesting wine that finishes with a sour jujube note. I think this was quite the bargain at $15. Now to wait for it to be restocked.

I have only tried the ‘12 of this (ex Vinomofo) - really like it and down to my last bottle of six. Where are you waiting for it to be restocked?

How did you receive this nice box Cruiser Elite? I bought a few Meshach from Dan, but never got one :(
You bought a few bottles, or a few cases of Meshach?
I'd assume one requirement would be you need to buy in multiples of 6 Meshach - or they would re-pack it into smaller packaging
