the quality or credibility of the wine, producer, or review is not the issueBuying from VM is a bit like a lottery, but at least it's hardly a severe burn/risk, you get your money back if you don't win.
Yes, worth noting the possibility of MFM, but from a credible maker with a credible (if not entirely glowing) TN (and not Sam Kim!), it's a little premature to judge the possible qpr of the wine.
Many wine sellers over many years have done the same thing and probably to a worse extent. It's still too small for ACCC or anyone else to take any specific action. No names, but there are a couple of merchants that are mentioned here occasionally that I will never buy from due to dodgy dealings of this and other types, including one who sourced a wine from a (well-known) winemaker who blended two medal winning wine leftovers and told the merchant they could advertise the wine as winning the medals from both components. They did. I still have the emails from the winemaker and merchant documenting that one.the quality or credibility of the wine, producer, or review is not the issue
it is advertising what the full price is from the producer - has it actually ever been truly available from, let alone sold by, the producer at full price?
which of course could then lead to ACL section 29 - false or misleading representations
Probably, the Sam Kim score matches and they had the 2015 (and 2013) previously.
Hi all, yes, just confirming that the case I am referring to (from the Black Market Deal) is a 2017 Vine Vale Road Shiraz, not a Grenache Shiraz. I thought it was good value, and the limited info available online, including the review posted above, seem to suggest it's been quite well received.And best of all, big and not sickly.
You will like.
I want a review.
Yes, I posted earlier in this thread. Not my style, very savoury.Has anyone tried this? $14.50 per bottle - $174 / 12pk
I got the Maverick Twins shiraz (2017 I think) a couple of years ago and that was excellent, still have a few.
2+2=4. Barossa shiraz + talented producer = amazing wine. It really is a simple equation. Maverick Wines knows exactly what they are doing with their fruit a...www.vinomofo.com
I boomed based on your feedback, while the free shipping was on. BTW is it a burgundy or bordeaux bottle?Hi all, yes, just confirming that the case I am referring to (from the Black Market Deal) is a 2017 Vine Vale Road Shiraz, not a Grenache Shiraz.

Thankfully you were not involved in the made for the Fo Mitolo cantiniere. What an absolute disaster firstly for the fact that it appeared as a normal retail selling wine, but secondly that it tasted worse than my mother in laws berry flavoured cottees cordial. It was really such a mediocre wine which probably landed in around the twenty dollar mark. Vinimofo's marketing and sales policy is by far the best ever. I asked them years ago how many refunds I had done. She replied six. I said that's not bad, how many cases did i order. You work it out? My 'keep the case' percentage was 93.81% and even though i sampled each of those six cases, they all were returned, for free, and credited. Consequently my real success rate without taking into consideration of time and effort to repackage was the same percentage we all have of being mortal. Yep, it's true and that's why i have put some serious dents, bruises, nicks, contusions in my liver in recent years because i got a little excited with the Fo's deals. Their marketing surely worked on this sucker.Hi all, yes, just confirming that the case I am referring to (from the Black Market Deal) is a 2017 Vine Vale Road Shiraz, not a Grenache Shiraz.

Interested to hear some more reviews on here, though!
Also, I am skeptical re VM prices and alleged discount amounts. And it's disappointing to have to be that way. I've been approaching it on the basis that if a particular bottle has multiple positive reviews from seemingly reputable places, I'll just assess the price against what I'd be prepared to pay for a bottle of that quality. Seems to have worked so far. But, it does limit me from choosing potentially less well-known wines that might be very nice (such as the VVR shiraz, which was a decent win!).
Thanks for the Rosenvale review!I remembr
So to answer your original question, the Ledge was a magnificent wine and all three went down beautifully.
Mention here was made of the farmers leap shiraz. I think I have about 2 left from the 12 and all were very good. Not too complex per se, but nothing offensive about it eaither. Great value indeed and the consistency of every bot was impressive.
I have just had 2 six packs delivered from the Fo and none were mentioned here in the last ten days or so. Barossa Black market Deal 34998.
Single vineyard,family owned down to just under$20. Rosenvale 2017 Vine vale Rd. This is a very good wine indeed, with a lot of complexity. Not fruit bomb either. nicely made and has what i have to have in full bodied(thats not to say a wine described as medium will not appeal to me as Victorian reds fall into this category a lot and they are great and fill up upon airing) and fruity. More of a firecracker or grenade than a bomb. Lovely length. Certainly worth $40, dont know about $60 as its not my area.
the other one ten days or so ago was the WA Harewood Reserve 2018 Cabernet reserve 6 pack BM deal at about $20 a bot. Only had the sampler and it was very very nice. So two out of two wins.
Kevviek, you still with Amazon? and still knocking down a few botts?
W and D, nice send back of the granite, i understand when the description doesnt meet the reality. A bit like half of these dating agencies i guess.
Better luck with the new one. Please report.
