Qantas until possibly today - prices before $50 off:

Only know of the Leeuwin Estate. No idea if the others are good value.
They're all good/value - whether you'll like them is a different matter :)

Gary Walsh has just rated the single vineyards: South 97pts, North 96pts, East 94+pts - all four wines are available direct in a pack for $220 delivered ($55/bt)


It's been identified on Winefront that Dan's are clearing chardonnays at certain stores, such as these available for delivery (note that free delivery for $150+ wine orders using CASHREWARDSBDAY and 10% Cashrewards ends tonight - thanks @CLT Aussie :)):

View attachment 162146
Dan's clearance continues with new wines reduced, though included wines can be store-specific - Ringwood has, besides champagne, Lethbridge 2018 for $16 before discounts

To maintain clearance prices, don't buy store stock (in-store/click+collect), as when that's gone, so is the clearance price - instead, deliver to Parcel Collect at the store's nearest post office (Ringwood in this case)
