I got my Wills Domain Paladin Hill Matrix yesterday. It says on the (individually numbered) bottles to drink from 2026 onwards. Not sure I can wait that long to try one.

When ordering 6-pack I normally* open a bottle strait away regardless of cellaring requirements to:

1. Make sure the wine is in good condition, particularly when under cork as it will be too late to return after a while.
2. See how it tastes young and follow the progress as it ages.

*An exception to the rule will be if wines are very expensive and come from trusted source, VM is not one of them ;)

Agreed 100%. Got a lot of 5 packs from VM. Incidentally Wills Matrix is a terrific wine

Well if you do cave in to temptation let us know your thoughts.

I opened one up last night and finished it this evening. I can see how it might develop, but seems way underdone at the moment. To drink right now, I much prefer the Serafino 2013 Reserve Tempranillo that I got for just over $5/bottle last month :)

Pirramimma heritage cab shiraz is now available at VM for $15/bottle

A few here were fans of the Shiraz

10% cashback at Cashrewards
There is also new batch of Heritage Shiraz 2017 vintage on VM now at the same price.

Keen to give the cab Shiraz a try, the 2016 heritage Shiraz was a tad light to my taste so I'm not sure if cab Shiraz would be better suited to my palate. Will prob head to Share a Case as they come in 12 btls case

Apparently they have a USA-destined back label (and front label on a closer look at your pic), so probably a direct import (prob from Europe) by VM.
And VM have used Aus Post for at least a year. :)
Yep, drying out is much more of an issue, and I take a bit of mold as a sign the bottle has been stored in a place that will more likely keep the cork plump than shrink it. Have had many nice bottles with a bit of mold at top of cork.
