All the discussion about this wine is tempting me to crack my one bottle of it. I'm gonna wait until its at least a two year old first though before downing it in one, straight out of the bottle.
It's all it basically deserves let's face it!

Awesome, thanks

Hers is the link....

PLs let me know what you think it will be.....cheers

You scooped the pool on that one! 2014 Rosemount Estate GSM Little Berry McLaren Vale, Australia, South Australia, Fleurieu, McLaren Vale - CellarTracker sorry to be facetious but I sent the same wine back a week or so ago, I don't want to rain on your parade but I thought it was average to say the least. One of the great things about this forum is that if you keep up with the daily throughput of vino from the 'Fo there will generally be someone who has tried it and can give some kind of opinion on it before buying(who knows, you might even enjoy the aforementioned wine...)



Same thing has just happened with the Driftwood Cab Sav, came home tonight and there it was cluttering up my vestibule (I've had a sip but not prepared to do a proper show and tell à la Wozza at this stage)

I think this is a Whinganddining quote from a few days ago, but I would love a report on this one. I really loved their 2009 Semillon that I picked up thru winemarket a while back but have not had any of their reds.
OK BF but I can't WW (wine wank) very well at this late stage of the day:

The colour is alluring, still a relatively youthful deep garnet with legs, yes legs, viscous and undulating their way across the Harris Scarfe stemware I'm supping from in lieu of the Sunday-best Riedel that occupies the top shelf of the kitchen dresser. Anyway I digress, that snail-trail of goodness a consequence of the behemoth 15.1% alcohol content that it wears like a tight black cocktail frock. It's actually a very approachable number, certainly eminently quaffable, a touch of sagebrush delineating the outer confines of the boysenberry trifle flavour profile that is also paradoxically stacked chockfull of choo-choo bar liquorice and briary ripeness. It's a 91 from me and goodnight from me and goodnight from him....

Scritti Politti Steady, I'm sure that Wood Beez are something that the good farmer has herded in his time (plus he loves a bow drawn long ;))
Can we keep this thread on-topic? You can PM for conversations, or use the musing's thread. It's hard for newcomers to actually get any useful information if they have to trawl through pages of random off-topic stuff.

Anyway.....on the VM delivery front my case of Hart of the Barossa Shiraz (actually two 1/2 cases strapped together) landed inexplicably yesterday, I say inexplicably because delivery was slated for the 25th the last I heard! Still finishing off the first bottle of the delectable Driftwood Cab Sav and the fag ends of a bottle of the Alfred from GWD so won't give you my W&D rating until perhaps tomorrow, still waiting on the First Creek Cab Merlot but fingers crossed for a vino trifecta....

I'm surprised at the amount of reservation with the F+H...since a lot of new stuff VM flogs is unknown, and seems as though it's been a lot more 'miss' than 'hit' this year judging by the feedback from the more frequent purchasers. When a new vintage comes along of what was a consensus top bargain buy last year (I recall many people had it in their top 3 for sub $10 buys), it's a no brainer.

There is precedence from the likes of Glenlofty and Maverick Twins. Likewise, when I see Amelia stop by, there will be no hesitation.

If it's ****, then back it will go, but I'd much rather roll the dice on a new vintage of a previous stud than try to pull a rabbit out of the hat with all of the random **** on offer.
Well folks, the year is nearly over and I would like to pass comment on a pair of stunners, the Maverick Twins 2012 GSM....just loved the richness, the spice, the long lasting flavour and also, the 2012 Maverick Cabernet blend. This wine is incredibly impressive as well, more full on as you'd expect, but wonderfully fruity and rich. Under a tenner each, quite a deal. I think the enormous selections have to dry up till about april i would think, then it's off again. So plenty of imbibement to be done between then and now, time to deplete the stocks a touch and save some pennies because the mofos have a new year to work on. Lastly, unlike grays, I have not sent a single bottle back ! Thats what the slick buyers whose names start with a special K are there for. If it isn't good enough for them, it isn't good wnough for you ! Cheerio

Nice comments on the Driftwood Travis, you certainly have flogged your credit card in the past month. It seems that $42 Pyrenees shiraz has returned, I believe it was made by the guilty bystander Leroy from the now owned blues brothers. Knocked a maverick 2014 blend last night, too peppery gsm.

I agree, being relatively new to Vinomofo, I missed out of the Maverick twins GSM 2012/2013, but managed to score a case of 2014 a month or so and was really disappointed after all of the superlatives about the previous vintages...I may give it one more try, but I think it's going back...

What you are really hoping for is the fourth delivery not from Winebox Warehouse, but Chemist warehouse..a twelve pack of Beroccas. This should see you soldier on....or is that another products slogan.

Temptation from the Fo is why they have become the best retailer. When do you say enough is enough?

But seriously folks, the 2012 Driftwood Cab Sav is a superbly drinkable aka 'drink now' kind of wine, very happy to have taken the plunge and bought a case, would advise any other FF punters to follow suit if it makes the rounds again and to put it in perspective I'm generally a shiraz man through and through...

Next delivery is straight from the good people at First Creek, very adroitly handled too in terms of customer liaison etc. Perhaps a liver detox product might be more in order BF!

It feels like it is to me. VM have been trying to flog it since what seems like the dawn of time.
