Gary Walsh has now given 94pts to the 2019 Rochford Estate, which is currently $22.80 delivered in dozens as part of their 40% off Estate wines sale that ends this Wednesday (referrals)

Similarly recently rated 94pts, but this time by Mike Bennie, is Garagiste Le Stagiaire 2018 - $24.65 @ Different Drop using HOME (price-match @ Dan's or Prince Wine Store)



CellarDoor.co currently have Seppelt Drumborg 2016/2017 for $25 until this Sunday - or $20.83 using MAYREWARD :)
Thanks QAZ got some Drumborg. My 1st post on this Pinot forum, I'm usually into other reds but getting into more "finesse" in (some of) my drinking habits. I thought going a pinot from the "Drumborg" range would be a safe bet.

no worries - you might also like to consider a bottle of Hoddles Creek Estate 2019 ($21.99 @ myCellars - pm me for free delivery code), which is often considered the best value pinot around

na sorry. Gamay makes some nice wines, but they can’t approach a good Pinot! :cool:
True, but hopefully the highest-ever rated Beaujolais on Winefront, and equal-highest gamay with Sorrenberg's 2017, might come close:



There’s a client that I did a cellar for, a lovely guy in the money market. I put a cooler into his cellar in his house for 3,500 bottles, and when I went back a year later to service the cooler, 90% of the wine in there was La Tâche. And when I got talking to him he says “This is only the tip of the iceberg”. He had something like another 5,000 at Wine Ark and another 15,000 off-shore. This guy would have probably the biggest single collection of La Tâche in the world.

$72 direct from winery, but 10% off on dozens including mixed cases, bringing it down to $64.80. I understand that discounts might only be available until the end of June. Their other wines are excellent also.

If anyone is interested in a bottle, or a few, let me know as I will be buying in the next week or two. I'm in Melbourne and can store wine in controlled cellar until we meet up.
