Was that after CB? I looked a week ago and I thought it was $34.99? $25 seems ridiculous, even Dan's is $36.99
First Choice comes to around $25 after the 20% CB. I might grab 4 bottles of the 2015.
Not tried, cork seal, not buying.
Yes, agree. I had a corked Basket Press replaced. They know they are not 100% perfect but the failure rate is now very low and they hold enough spare to replace the ones that fail.Hopefully it’s less of an issue these days for premium wines than it was in the past. I remember when visiting Standish last year Dan said he use some of the most expensive corks on the market ($3-5 each IIRC) combined with quality bottles to ensure care-free long term cellaring. Surely other serous winemakers are doing the same, now it’s all about separating the serious from the amateurs

So, I bought a six of the mystery 2017 margaret river bordeaux blend from TWC - down from $40 and ended up at about $23 delivered after discounts and cb. Lo, it turns out to be juniper estate, one of my absolute favourites from a visit there 20 years ago! Jump back on ready to buy more... - SOLD OUT!! Boohoo. What a miss

On sale, Business Class as-well. I'm not sure if the potential wines which may be included? It says champagne too.
They have alot of wine packs on sale aswell, $200 down from $300+
Just noticed it's already been posted
So the $139 you pay is more or less the ‘value’ you get. Although who pays RRP for wine on this forum?Not sure if has been posted - deal steal available.
Friend had his pack arrived - Frankland Estate Riesling 2018 (RRP 30-40 ) and Shaw + Smith Balhannah Vineyard Shiraz 2018 (RRP 90-100)
Unfortunately from what I saw, most people didn't even get the value they paid.
I knew it would be too risky, the champagne was definitely the best if the bunch.
No. Same prices or better available elsewhere. But if you aren't prepared to look around/are a lazy shopper/need something now/prefer to do your shopping all in the same place then it may work out for you.
Was this: 2017 Mystery 'Outstanding' Margaret River Bordeaux BlendGot a link? Is it available anywhere else?
I went to buy some Wynn's Black Label, but decided on 1 bottle of Bin 389 2017 for $85, with 20% CB should bring it to $68ish
I'll still grab some Black Label next CB sale. It seems they happen every few weeks.
