I have sampled the Wolf Blass 05 Black Label and can recommend it, however I am after some guidance on the Yering Shiraz/Voigner please?

Not good enough of an offer to make me order with them again rather than picking wine up at my local Vintage Cellars/ Dan Murphey's for- most likely- far less money and the same (or better) quality. Now- 4000 points again for any dozen ordered, then we're talking! :D

I see Epiqure offers 2000 bonus points when you purchase your first dozen.... I wonder if that still applies with this offer?

2000 + 2000 = 4000 ???

Yes, it certainly does. I recently bought my first dozen with a 4000 point bonus offer. Spent $180, received 540 + 2000 + 4000. I was happy with 36 points per dollar spent!

Agreed, 2000 for a dozen doesn't quite cut it unless you were going to buy a dozen (especially if the offer is limited to Yeerling which it seems to be?).

So the 2000 points applies to non-Yeerling wine too does it? I read the offer as only Yeerling and I am I sufficiently familiar with Yeerling to gamble on a dozen if it's not up to muster.

I have just polished off a bottle of The Yering Sation 2007 Shiraz/Voigner and it is not too bad at all, more than quaffable.........but it can be purchased for $2-3 less per bottle than epiqure is offering. I'll probably skip this offer.

Yes I ended up there after a meeting last week.. When you include the 05 cab sav from Wolfe, life isn't too bad!

Retail value ??

Hi, did anyone who purchased the latest Yering Station offer with the bonus Wolf Blass and bonus points get a confirmation email of the purchase? I didn't and credit card company has charged and Epiqure has no record!

Offer appears to be over so I will see what Epiqure comes back with once they finish their investigation.

The website in general does not appear to be working, is anyone else experiencing that?


Yering Station Red Plus Pack
Buy 6 bottles of 2007 Yering Station Shiraz Viognier and get a bonus bottle of 2005 Wolf Blass Black Label Cabernet Sauvignon. This pack is valued at $285.94^.

With the purchase of 2 cases
Case of 6 plus free bottle $155.94
(= $25.99 per Yering Station bottle) or 23,040 points~

I think this one is a very good offer, purchase 12 bottles and pay $3.20 more a bottle than Dan Murphy's the Shiraz Viognier for, but you also get a bottle of the Wolf Blass Black label cab sauv that cost's over $100 at Dan's and you also get 2,000 points.

my email verification came through today, a bit later than last purchase I think, so it seems to be working again. I ordered as above for the 12 SV with bonus WB and 2,000 points

New email offer today, best points offer of the bunch I think was the Shaw & Smith Suavignon Blanc. 3,000 bonus points earn with purchase of 12 bottles. This is one of the better SB out there.

From the cellar
2012 Shaw and Smith Sauvignon Blanc
New vintage, perfect for spring. One of Australia's iconic Sauvignon Blancs, a must for the warm days ahead.

With the purchase of 12 bottles
Case of 12 $251.88 (= $20.99 a bottle)
or 32,998 points~

Shaw & Smith Suavignon Blanc. 3,000 points for 12 bottles.
You got me all excited.

At 3,000 points for 12 bottles I would have probably exhausted my points balance on wine :mrgreen:

Yes, could have worded that better! 3,000 bonus points earn for 12 bottles reads better.

I got ths too; does anyone know how this sits with a retail price? Given the SB glut, it looked a little pricey to me but agree it's a nice wine.

$19.99 for this wine is a very good price, for me it's Australia's most consistent and I think best SB and has been for a long time. Saying that I don't drink SB much anymore but if I do I always try and get this Shaw & Smith one. Over the years around $20 is the cheapest I have ever seen it sold for and a quick google search now the cheapest price was $21.95 for a case buy plus the delivery fee you will not have to pay with Epiqure. Dan Murphy's price is $23.75 in six bottle buy.
