after you guys comment, I am a bit worry, I just buy a case this morning. Should I cancel it?

Edit:
Yes, I will cancel it next Monday. Why do they use an HK movie star photo as a customer photo? _Louis.jpeg

My 4c worth, it is probably a wine that was never meant to see daylight in Oz. If it was good enough at the right price why would you ship it o'seas?
My read is a $68btl for o'seas market = (at best) $19.90btl in the Oz market. My money is going elsewhere.

So the second tranche of nightfall took place this evening.
Last half of the bottle settled a bit and now more like an everyday decent cab merlot. perhaps closer to the purchase $ value.
I have been quaffing seemingly endless bottles of '15 Caillard Mataro, a wine that really rings my bells for peanut $$'s.. but I am a bit sick of it.. 🥱
For the $ the nightfall is ok, very flash bottle presentation and useful wine to take places…tempted to buy another 6… ymmv...

Sounds like it's just OK for you. A quaffer. Cheers.

Tgh...this one sounded like a bit of a struggle so why would you consider another six pack?
The reason I say that is I have finished my sampling of it and am satisfied as I prepare tonight's dinner, but I have also got an 18 Warramunda Cabernets decanting which certainly makes for an interesting side by side comparison. I will post my thoughts in the Nice Wines Section. It will make for a good read about how some of us see wine changing after we lift the lid. I will now go on a wine buying embargo until next year as I have two more fo shirazes coming. Enjoy your beverage.

Andy Graham gives the Yarra valleys sunshine Creek chardy a 93. He is a great critic and a tough marker, and I have found his reviews very honest. I am not buying, but wouldve been I think I'd this was $17.50 a bottle. He has recently fallen in love with another valley producer Tokar Estate. I had bought a couple of their 6 pack $99 boxes with free delivery....damn good....and the pinot shiraz blend is beautiful. Not a dud in that pack but the rose is a bit thin. But at the price, the other 5make up for it. A good complex Chardonnay I believe is right up there in my top flavour profile. I love the body and if you get length and minerality, then it's the bees knees. That Dappled appelation chardy 19 I think is sublime. Was under the house Thursday and noticed I have 2 left. The embargo is being tested sadly seven days in but I was tough. I was also a tight cough.
