as with their chardonnay and pinot noir, 2019 Dappled Single-Vineyard Shiraz is $38.25 delivered direct using SENDWINE for 15% off - ends today (2018 CM(WF)95)

Craiglee Shiraz 2011-2016 6pk $330 ($55/bt) delivered direct (also features in the next NWC @Home tasting)
(thanks/credit to @Greggo on Winefront)

besides beginning online tastings, COVID-19 has additionally resulted in the National Wine Centre now allowing people to purchase direct from their extensive cellar, which includes wines from last century (free delivery with 12+ bottles) - their website list is outdated, but I have uploaded a current one here, though these are no longer available:
  • 2005 Charles Melton Grains of Paradise Shiraz Barossa Valley, SA $60
  • 2013 S.C Pannell Syrah Adelaide Hills, SA $45
  • 2015 Noon Winery Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek, SA $45
  • 2016 Noon Winery Reserve Shiraz Langhorne Creek, SA $45
  • NV Sami-Odi Little Wine #8 Syrah Barossa Valley, SA $60

Just got an email from Shopback. As an IT guy, I strongly recommend that do not put your sensitive data including DOB on the internet. I have seen so many example of the data leaking.

Usually, I will put 1st Jan 19xx(genuine born year)
totally agree - only give minimal necessary truthful/correct information

have multiple email addresses and phone numbers, deliveries perhaps addressed to a post office, collection point service or workplace, and redirect to home when in transit

use different email addresses for email/personal, shopping, finance/PayPal/government

if providing account details for funds transfer/deposits, then use a one-way external-deposit-only-access account, that only allows withdrawals into a linked account

never store/save payment/financial details

check
10% off at BWS at the moment if you use their app, and the spend is over $50. Could be useful for some people who had their eye on some clearance items and just wanted an extra nudge to bring that price down even further.
BWS also have 10% off all pick-up orders over $50, so you can shop on your computer if easier.
Just ordered a bottle of Veuve LGD for $172.
202 QF points thrown in. Good value?
2006
I like the revolving box
Bollinger LGA seems decent too at $188 before BWS and Wish discounts
not as cheap as my earlier haul, but seems someone bought all the online champagne from St Kilda West:

St Kilda West had 6 botts TH available yesterday if anybody wants to grab them.

I actually had them in my basket but decided to delete as I grabbed nigh on a doz during the week

Langtons 2009 Liandra, with bonus 2008 Astralis, deal is back on:


Seems OK value for some good age and the Astralis, particularly if you have the $100 vintec club credit. Tho the Liandra probably isn't quite as good as the 2010 Hickinbotham they had going briefly last week... (4.2 on vivino vs 4.4). I haven't tried the 2009 yet - damn bottle just keeps staring at me saying 'I dare you'!

Given the account details they have is your bank account number and BSB, there is minimal harm here with that information.

After stumbling across BWS Baxter (VIC) store offering 200ml Lanson Black Label as a clearance special at $10.00ea - bear in mind only 1 in stock - I thought I would give Dan’s price beat a run this morn.

With screen shot on phone I first checked Dan’s Parkdale who had 23 in stock which the young dude readily matched so pmt with GC brought cost down to $9.50ea.

Then off to Cheltenham store where rep was ready to sell me another 24botts straight up but then started Googling and finally responded ‘Baxter is outside 20km radius of our store so cannot sorry’ - indeed in Dan’s Ts & Cs radius is 10km but Baxter is 30km away so was screwed here

Up to Dan’s in Brighton and again not a prob to price beat but computer only shows 11 in stock - ok I will take them all but sweep of shelves and fridge can only produce 4 botts total - 7 gone missing somewhere - but they did price beat at $9.50 ea

So all up 27 botts at net average after GC $9.43 - would have preferred 100 but I guess it’s a start 👍

Hi Boris Farmer,

Moss Wood is one of Australia's most iconic Cabernet producers and this delicious new release Moss Wood Amy's Blend 2018 is right up there with the best they make (with a 96pt rating from you know who!). Their Estate Cabernet is one of the 2 or 3 best Cab's in the country and sells out within days of its release at over 130.0 a bottle, so at just 35.0 this Amy's qualifies as a bona fide Bargain!


Now folks someone is setting themselves up to be hung drawn and quartered.

This sells in Danny at thirtees.

Am i wrong, in that it never sells foe $130. Not this blend anyway.

something a bit shifty here.

The wording does say it is their estate cab (the wilyabrup cabernet) that is $130. Amy's is not estate, it's sourced from Glenmore. Though I can see a bit of ambiguity there...

Amy's blend is a much cheaper one. Not sure how much better than this the estate is. I got some Amy's from the BWS clearance a month or so ago which worked out at less than half price once you bought in a six and got cashback.

Hmm. i now get it entirely. Slightly dodgy but i give them the benefit of the doubt. Not being a Cullen or Moss Wood afficianado, the disparity is not obvious to me but to punters in this taste world, it was obvious. You see, the presence of a potential bargain has me excited.

I have never had a Moss Wood yet.

Their straight cab is a must try, 08 onwards they have been pretty consistent, so there's no vintages to avoid. Comparing icons, I rate it far higher than the Diana Madeline.

I'm sure you have seen such advertising many times before. Here, let me tweak a few words and see if it sounds familiar:

Hi Boris Farmer,

Penfolds is one of Australia's most iconic producers and this delicious new release Penfolds Bin 389 is right up there with the best they make (with a 96pt rating from you know who!). Their Grange Shiraz is the most collected wine in the country and sells at over 750.00 a bottle, so at just $100.00 this "baby Grange" qualifies as a bona fide Bargain!

I guess its a bit more obvious if you know the products of the brand, but its a very used and abused sales pitch.

yes, if four dozen lasted just over a year, then you'll probably need more by summer :)

Thanks for sharing, I didn't know this existed! do you know how we can purchase the wines on that list? when I went onto their website only the pre-selected packs seem to be purchasable.

tastings @ Grand Cru:

no worries, I didn't know that there was such a treasure trove or much about the NWC until recently either - try nwc.info@adelaide.edu.au or pm me for direct contact details

Given the account details they have is your bank account number and BSB, there is minimal harm here with that information.
with knowledge of the account name as well, there have been cases of unauthorised withdrawals via direct debit

Pretty pathetic of someone who refuse to take responsibility on their selfish acts towards this group to criticise others here.
possibly true, but everyone makes mistakes, however hopefully learns from them, so maybe better to be somewhat less harsh and more merciful, else they might be too terrified to try anything again

OzBargain users would say I was selfless in sharing the deal. Can’t please everyone.
The deal was honoured so not sure why you feel such a strong sense of entitlement.
