Seems to be this one. Haven't tried it. But at least it gives a start for some further research. Vivino reviews are positive.

Will Taylor Wines Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Halliday score lines up, Malbec 14%, and under cork. $40 from store, but hey it is vinomofo so wont be perfectly accurate.
Tried one of these tonight, not a bad Coonawarra at all. Pitty it's sold out or I would have grabbed some more. 2009 but still needs a good decant to open up.

Yeah, we were lucky enough to grab a second 6-pack after trying the first bottle. AusPost seems to be having a few issues with delivery though - it's original ETA was last Friday and it's still not here.

Is this Handpicked?

I thought this might have been Star Lane but I might be wrong

The french Oak, blackberries and viollets definitely line up. I thought the Handpicked Heathcote Shiraz usually $70? The below link seems to be the previous vintage, the profile is exactly the same. Star Lane is Beechworth so not Star Lane

After some more searching i am pretty confident it will be Galli Estate Lorenzo 2017. Found a match to the link above from the .sg site Galli Estate Lorenzo Shiraz 2016. The 2017 scored 93 JH (Creber) also link to 2016 Heathcote Lorenzo Shiraz – Galli Estate Winery | Heatcote Sunbury Wine Region matches descriptives, even the '5 years plan' thing

Can someone please identify this? And is it good?
Pretty sure it is
Farmer's Leap Wines | Padthaway | Shiraz | 2014
They had the 2013 a while back.
The 2014 scored 88pts from Ned Goodwin for Wine Companion.
It's $16 at Wine Direct: Farmer’s Leap Shiraz 2014

Pretty confident the below is Monterra 2017 Reserve Fleurieu Cabernet Sauvignon.. Any thoughts?

I think you are correct.
But no thoughts on the wine as I seldom buy Cabernet these days.
CWSA = China Wine & Spirits Awards if anyone didn't already know.

It's actually $240/6 ex-winery, not $50, the listing in wine-searcher at $50 per single bottle -> 404, a lack of coordination with VM showing.

I’ve unsubscribed from all VM comms, I got sick of the florid descriptions for EVERY wine, some I bought that didn’t live up to the excessive praise. Might give it a break for a while.

I've had one order this year, Rolf Binder Heysen Shiraz 2015 recently at a very sharp price. I just ignore the VM hype and do my own research, never buy a mystery wine unless I know what it is, which I usually do soon after the email arrives.

That's my modus operandi too RB, I think it goes all the way back to having some Rosemount "Little Berries" palmed off on me and other unsuspecting AFF punters as a BM deal (after some particularly fanciful descriptions on their behalf) that convinced me to do my due diligence... Having said that I am finishing off the evening with a glass of the Cosmos Yarra Valley Shiraz 2016 Reserve courtesy of VM and it is an exceedingly nice drop which has somewhat redeemed them in my eyes ;)

I almost bought that a couple of times, good to know there are some good wines still. I ended up buying the Monterra, hasn't arrived yet though..
