I enjoy the Cliff Edge Shiraz. Is there are regular source for good prices on it? Does the Rathbone Group have a cellardoor.co/cellarone equivalent albeit on a much smaller scale? Dan's has a member special @ $25
at $25 maybe not, usual retailers are mycellars and nicks ,a bit over $25.

Last bottle of this, well of the 2014s at least and damn it's a good wine. I'm really a huge fan of most of Brash Higgins' wines. I think they represent great value for money and worth seeking out.

From where is it?

Manjimup. Not sure of the producer. A friend of mine lives between Manji and Perth for their business. She was selling these of behalf of a farmer friend of hers. I picked up this 66 gram beauty for an even $50.

And I concur with that article on the wine matching. The Jura is a bit left field but I think the nuttiness and salinity should work well, probably best with the soup with truffle course.

Not a bad price. We “normally“ get ours from Canberra. (LOL, of course:cool: ).

AA2D94ED-20CC-4494-9679-F898848584BB.jpeg Was hilarious buying them from a grocery store in Belconnen Fresh food Market. Had to speak to 5 people then taken out the back to be shown a plastic box full. Like a clandestine drug deal. $2 a gram. Drugs probably would have been cheaper. Despite triple layers, could still smell them in carryons in overhead bins.

Cooked truffled scrambled eggs (eggs left in fridge for 4 days in sealed container with truffle),shaved truffles over fresh fettuccine, then slivers of truffle under skin of chicken then roasted.

Where did you get that cooper extra strong ale from qaz?
my cellar? :)

2010 is a birth year, and I used to be a beer fanatic as well as a wine connoisseur - my related posts from long ago are in forums elsewhere - with a few vintage beers still being kept from that time, including a 1995 which I'll probably end up having when my First Growths of the same year are eventually opened


Got my hands on a nice fresh truffle. These two should hopefully match quite nicely tonight

That Montbourgeau has been in my cellar for a couple of years, I bought the same Grande Annee today (perhaps not since the 1990s), now just have to find a fresh truffle - fortunately foraging for food can be included in obtaining take away food as a permitted reason to leave home :)

It was your post that got me to order the Montbourgeau, so thank you. It was a pretty good wine, but acid not quite as high as I expected. I have one more bottle which I'll aim to knock off in the next couple of years. Also, showed best when at about 15-17 degrees C. Grande Annee was all class. Again, showed its best warmed up a little so about 12C.
