In case anyone is interested, the Giant Steps 2014 Merlot VM were offering as a secret deal about 3 weeks ago ($12.50 in dozen) is very good value.
With the caveat that I have drunk little straight Merlot before, I would recommend this at $35pb. At $12.50, it's really is a steal.
First VW purchase in about 12 months.
I was looking at this one, aged Rioja sounds interesting, down from $60 to $28.50
The a quick search on Google: DWWA 2014 International Trophies: Red Spanish Varietals under £15 - Decanter
come up with a best in show award...for under 15 Euro (ok, pounds)...with no other entries entered against it
Hey folks, I'm pretty sure this 2013 Organic Shiraz: www.vinomofo.com/wines/red-wine/mof_-secret-deal-shiraz-2013-25001 is by Baileys of Glenrowan (2013 Organic Shiraz)
It got 95 points from Halliday and some other bloke I've never heard of... Has it been up on VM before and does anyone know if it's any good?
Hmm might stay away from it then - poked around on the Baileys website a bit more and found that they were offering a special where you could buy a dozen of them for $20pb, so it's not really a great VM deal anyway.
Cheers for the link, I'd never seen a review from him before until then!
I'm sure you're correct Rocket. I've had the 2012 and 2013 before and they were fantastic value. Would have boomed this time but just had my Giant Steps CM 2013 and club case delivered yesterday.
I still have a 2012 and 2013 somewhere in storage, so I only boomed on 1 case (think I bought 3 12's and 2 13's)....too much wine! I still think one of the best VM value wines to date.

It's from Amelia Park, but according to one of my members (via broker) it's apparently an "export label" or if feeling cynical, maybe "made for VM".
They also have a Shiraz 2014 at the same price, but won't be getting the Reserve level wines.
