I am a ebay plus member but the vinomofo wines do not seem to be "ebay plus" any more.
Oh - I see, but even so - according to eBay terms - "Sellers are responsible for return postage if the item doesn't match the listing description, or arrived damaged or faulty."

I think given Vinomofo broad policy on returns and the taste of wine being such subjective matter - it is worth reaching out to them via eBay messaging service or reaching out to eBay support politely suggesting that the wine has not met your expectations and them manually processing a prepaid return label.

Thanks, ebay does not make it easy to bypass the automated menu. I bought the label already and will claim it back from PayPal.

Sorry, ignore this, was thinking about the chardy i matched up yesterday (Sea Glass Single Vineyard Red Hill)
I think you might be right anyway, if they are selling a lot of Sea Glass the 2018 Sea Glass Red Hill Pinot Noir might be the best fit.

Looking forward to your thoughts after sampling.
Not the same wine, but I got the Nightfall Leo the Lion straight cabernet 2015 from VM a while back. It was rrp120 down to 35 and i shared a couple of cases with a few friends. Everyone has really enjoyed the single bottle they've each had and i'm on the lookout if it comes up again. I'm.keeping 2-3 bottles for a couple of years. I'm also interested in peoples thoughts on The Balance

Being from the same year, I look forward to my first 'sale or return' taster probably this weekend. I believe the winery is a Brands winery subsiduary where they wanted to make premium wines for premium prices. You seem to suggest that anything under $35 is great value. Had a Glenlofty 2013 Shiraz last night watching the incredible basketball game. Vintages certainly vary and this was still good but not a patch on the 2011. But Leo the lion was good in 2015. My chops will be licking.

Got this from my VM broker just now

You’ve heard a bit from me lately on the Shiraz front, but we just wrangled an old-school beauty from Barossa, and I have exclusive pre-arrival access. If you enjoyed Angove 1886 or the Lou Miranda Reserve Shiraz, then this will be right up your alley.

This award winning Shiraz comes from Reis Creek in the heartland of the Barossa. Reis Creek is a family run operation dating back to 1850, founded by Johann Pech. Fast forward four generations and we arrive with Leo Pech at the helm. A stalwart of the Barossa wine community, Leo has worn many hats: Vice-President of Wine Grape Growers Council of Australian, Chairman of the Barossa Grapegrowers Vine Selection Society, Chairman of the Barossa Wine Grape Advisory Council, National President of the Australian grape Producer Association. In 1984, Leo became a Baron of the Barossa for his contribution to the grape and wine industry.

The Reis Creek 2016 Shiraz is a showcase of Barossa generosity and generational intelligence in winemaking practice and terroir. It's rich, developed, robust and tightly wound in an oak blanket. It is quintessential Barossa in its most admired and recognised format. It screams old-school Australiana, and the heavy-set bottle is quite telling of the pedigree and demographic.


This is not reinventing the wheel, it’s comfort, consistency and cracking good value.
We currently have it available at $68 down to $19.90 in the 6 pack, so get at me quickly if you are interested in a case or two. I’m sure it won’t stick around for too long.

 
Easy to install and operate, this 10 in 1 lens kit can be used on your Smartphone.

No mention of the owner/founder/winemaker Jim Jin since 2009 who bought the Pech Vineyards sometime later.
From Wine Companion:
"This substantial business is owned by Jim Jin, who arrived in SA to study oenology at the University of Adelaide in 2008. Jim created Reis Creek in 2009, and the nature of the business changed significantly with the purchase of a 65ha vineyard from Leo Pech, 4th-generation of one of the leading grapegrowing families in the Barossa Valley. Exports to China."

Cellar Door seems to be the old Schild CD in Lyndoch.

2016 Limited Release Barossa Valley Shiraz​

$68.00

INTRODUCTION:
ORIGINAL AREA: BAROSSA VALLEY, AUSTRALIA
COLOUR: BRIGHT RED
SMELL: Chocolate and pepper aromas


I am hoping the quality of the wine is respectful of the original retail price because from their website, the uniqueness of the wine's description is amazing although not unique. It appears they left all the wax on the cork as there is not too much waxing lyrically going on here. Colour bright red. The honesty is admirable. Tells me already that this wine is a keeper. But when was this written. April 2016 per chance? Now we get to smell. At least it's not a fart in a bathtub. Chocolate and pepper aromas takes me back to Mickey Rourke in 9 and a half weeks. No guesses for what they would do with the empty bottle but I reckon at that stage, they would be past the spinning of it on the floor. At a lobster a bottle, I am sharing with a mate hoping that the terroir and wine making was at its peak in 2016 as this bottle falls towards the cheaper end of their range. Amazing really. Will be all be pleasantly surprised? Oh i also hear the winery has a job going for a marketing person.

I am just a little concerned reading on their website “..started to make wines which were aimed to find the equilibrium of taste to cater for both Australian local market and the Chinese Market”.

Not being political but would prefer for Barossa shiraz to made as is .. ie without any tweaking to find this mentioned equilibrium.

Follow the money.
With a guarantee from the Fo it's a good punt. Times were different then albeit still in boom export times. But I couldn't care less. Original area mentions Barossa. Does that mean the wine was exported in 35000 litre containers, put on a boat, sent overseas, manipulated with, and then after the value add returned for us to pay $68 a bottle. Stranger things have happened. We sell a tonne and a half of steel for a grand and a half overseas, have it returned here and happily pay one hundred grand for a dolled up piece of steel called a car. The ultimate value add. Its going to be an interesting one for a change.
