On the back of @Cruiser Elite post about his buys this morning, I ducked into my local BWS (Richmond) and asked them to scan the Michael and the Eileen Hardy. Both were not showing as clearance in store, but scanning them got the same prices! Then tried a bunch of other wines to make up the 6 pack, but only had success with them. Got 2x Shadrach for $60 also

Well my local Dan's must have cobbled together stock as best they could.

I picked up my 2x Wolf Blass packs today and the BLs were a 2012 and a 2016. The Grey Labels were 2013 and 2017 Shiraz and some 2012 Shiraz/Cab. Will the older BL/GL cellar any longer or should I enjoy them now?

Nice assortment. They pretty much used some of their cellar releases to fulfill order. Halliday recommendations are below. Not sure how that translates to real world.

2012 Grey Label Shiraz/Cab - Rating: 95 To 2032
2013 Grey Label Shiraz - Rating 94 To 2040
2012 Black Label Cab/Shiraz - Rating 97 To 2042 (I assume the Balck label Cab/Shiraz is the Cab/Shiraz/Malbec??)

Thanks for the detailed response. I might have to subscribe to a wine review service one of these days.

Sit on them, we drank a 2004 Black label In 2015 and it was still too young.

I won’t waste any more time on this chase - but I might head to Dans this arvo and see if I can prise a 6 pack of Michael out of them with a price March.
And so I did and so they did - 1/2 doz Michael $85 less 10% and pmt GC = $72.67ea

And tks to a pic boomy sent me:

A76AAEEE-AECF-4B07-8C92-EE1A443F04BA.jpeg

And a price match on 1/2 doz Teusner Shiraz $75 less 10% and pmt GC = $64.12

So here is receipt kids - if Dans won’t price match a Dans receipt it would be time to hang up the boots wouldn’t it?

Note: 1 x Michael and 3 x Teusner ready to pick up Tuesday as cannot invoice if stock not in store apparently - just show receipt on Tue and they will honour same prices.

Thisprice match was done at Cheltenham store - the dude who served me was really stretching to give me full deal so I did not press for anymore - boomy also gave me this image:

I headed to Dans Parkdale store to try another lick but dude there would not price match at all as he could not see vintage listed on image - you win some and you lose some huh?

Will DM's honour a price match with a screenshot rather than physical receipt?
Generally No. Manager's discretion - Maybe.

As evident with the previous success stories on this thread, there's no harm asking especially if you already have things in your cart. But I wouldn't be too hopeful for a result.

DM rule is no but they also say price match must be from a store up to 10km away... Two weeks ago I managed to price match heaps of Mount Mary’s based on screenshot only. Had more hits than misses so definitely worth to try.

Didn’t have time today but tomorrow I’ll try to price match different vintages of Diana Madeline, Jack Mann and Moss Wood hopefully to build another vertical collection.

Does anyone know if BWS deliveries are redirectable? Hoping to bounce some orders around my parcel collect addresses

I tried that with a few bottles in another store, no luck. The Eileen Hardy seems to be half price and lots around but I left them on the shelf. My daughter needed some more hours on her L Plates so we drove around to a few stores in Melbourne and I got a 2013 Henschke Abbots Prayer, 2013 Lehman Stonewell, 2015 Parker First Growth and 2017 St Hallet Blackwell all for half price. I was really hoping for some Stefano Lubiano but seems there is none anywhere.

Haven't tried, but I've had Belle epoque arrive in their paper bags with no separators...:rolleyes: Even if it survives the re-transits, they use their own courier, so gotta call up auspost when it arrives and pay for redelivery.

Went to 2 Dan's stores in Brisbane tonight to try to price match some Cullen DM (and I had a physical receipt from a BWS purchase yesterday) and got knocked back both times. As soon as they determined it was a clearance sale item they wouldn't even consider it. Was worth a shot! Thought I was in at the first store - I went to the front counter and the girl was very happy to price match it but unfortunately the Cullens had those security lock things on them so she had to ask a supervisor for assistance and the supervisor came over and rejected me based on the clearance.
