Re: Vinomofo secret wine deals

Vinomofo has a new salvation case offer up (version VII):

This just means you get a mix pack of a bunch of their recent wines, this one only has reds. The 96pt $90 bottle they mention is the MollyDooker Carnival of Love 2010.
Got my salvation case delivered today. The 96pt $90 bottle was the Yering Station Reserve Shiraz Viognier 2010. Happy Days. But of course YMMV.

Another interesting deal today @$30/bottle:
https://vinomofo.com/deals/mofo-secret-deal-iconic-96pt-coonawarra-cabernet-sauvignon-2008-b8912110

Looks like the Yalumba The Menzies to me (all the info given matches up):
Yalumba - Wines Vintage

Sold for $42.75 at Dan's.
I agree with your conclusion.

Not sure what to make of this wine though. Interesting that the closure is still cork which is a shame. Reading the tasting notes on cellartracker, it seems like this is a bit of a clumsy wine. I wonder if it will come together with a bit more time or not. Not sure I really want six to find out though, but would love to know anyone else's thoughts who have tried this wine recently?

Had a bottle at the weekend and afraid I have to agree. I'm not a big Cab Sav fan in general but I think this needs a little longer in the cellar.

Re: Vinomofo secret wine deals

Very close, although vinomofo say the price at the winery is $45 and current pricing at Sandalford estate is "Today's exclusive offer is $150 per case (saving you $60)! Normally $35 per bottle, grab a six pack today for only $25 per bottle, delivered!"

Hmmm. Still a bargain for $13.50 pb at face value, but the Mt Langi Cliff Edge 2008 is back on epiQure and TBH I think I'd rather go for a known quantity

Re: Vinomofo secret wine deals

Any ideas on the latest blackmarket vinomofo deal? Margaret River reserve Shiraz 2009 for $162 a six pack. https://vinomofo.com/deals/black-market-deal-margaret-river-shiraz-2009-cc655e61
I'm pretty sure it's Wills Domain Reserve Shiraz:
http://www.willsdomain.com.au/online-cellar-door/red-wine/2009-reserve-shiraz-new-release/
The 2009 vintage was not rated by James Halliday while 2008 and 2010 were (matches the description). Alcohol % and price matches, plus vinomofo has a history of selling Wills Domain wines.

I saw that JH/WC email also.

Stacked with Free shipping, it should be a good deal, especially if something good comes along this week.

Re: Vinomofo secret wine deals

The marketing plan might make interesting reading.
Stuff is presented on a mostly one day deal, and then evaporates.
One might assume available until sold out, but it seems not so......strange ....

Re: Vinomofo secret wine deals

My guess is that some labels have unsold stock (might be unsold exports or older vintages that need to be cleared to make way for newer vintages).

Vinomofo (and other auction sites, brokers etc.) would be a way to clear some/all of that stock quickly. If Vinomofo made it available "until sold old" there'd be a lot less pressure for people to "buy right now"

Behind the scenes they do continue to offer most of the wines until sold, they are just not promoted that way. There have been a number I thought I had missed out on but in fact hadn't.
