Jeez boomy your becoming a bit like another poster here who regularly posts ancient history anecdotes. 👍
It was actually the last time I bought any Penfolds.
Only need one or two good bargains a year to stock up, put in storage and forget about them for a decade.

Edit: I believe there were some 50% clearance sales this year for 389 & 407 at BWS stores in NSW.

Wasn't the CM deal using Groupon $100 Vouchers for $10? Thing of the past never to be seen again - I bought 18 botts 2013 St Henri for $38 on one of those deals 1 - 2 years back - dream on if you think that will happen again - or maybe it will.

Clearance items at BWS in NSW? Surely might have been but it's kinda bit rich to quote these types of one off opps as indicative pricing which I kinda think the OP was getting at.

What's a fair price to pay for Pommery NV? Ya can't say $25 where many of us secured them on a mistake price
What is a good price for Penfolds 389? Wanted to get some but looking to hold off until the right deal comes along.
A good price is whatever you are prepared to pay on the day to secure the deal - never pay list price - deals will come and go - discounts will appear and disappear - jump on something when you think it is fair value.

IIRC there was a CM twin pack that they had accidently advertised as a single bottle which is why I have more Penfolds in my cellar than I will drink over the next 10 years.

Or maybe that was the St.Henri...

Trouble with Penfolds is I don't drink much of it, but I feel some uncontrolable compulsion to buy it when it's on sale.

This is my most recent purchase of 389.
View attachment 229070
Obviously not the cheapest at ~$72ish pb before 10% cashback. But current vintage, no limitations on purchase and delivered. It's the best pricing I've seen for the 2018 so far.

This is the best I've seen recently, it was fortuitous for me as I was near a store a long way from home, should be good to go come Christmas 2030

Was just perusing the BWS app and there is a promo in there for $20 off >$150 spend. Valid until 5 October.
Last time this promo was on it could be bundled with 20% ShopBack offer (up to $25). Let’s hope it happens again.

Actually the BWS ShopBack was 20% up to $25, even better than I remembered (edited my previous post).

I grabbed x2 Teusner Righteous FG 2014.
$150 full price, $75 after discount, $52.5 final price :)

JD Secret Wine #218 down from $150 to $34.98
(can’t help but laughing at this ridiculous discount)
It got 97pts from my favourite wine critic Sam Kim.
If you haven’t guessed by now it’s Curtis Martins Vineyard.

Edit: I hope no one gets tricked into buying thinking this is a genuine discount. Even at $34.98 it’s still overpriced IMO

I drink prolly more than my share - roll out 389 or RWT when you have guests around and see how their eyes light up
I keep a couple of cartons of fosters under the house and achieve the same result :)

Looks like Wynns is moving again - finally got notification that order will be shipped shortly...
