I don't think I've actually done anything "wrong" ?
Welcome to the club :)

I was ostracised in 2017 for no reason other than telling them to take my payment when they wanted but asking them to delay sending my wine for a few weeks.

Upside is that my Wendouree budget went to Lakes Folly this year. Had a 2010 jeroboam of their cabernets last weekend with some friends. Spectacular.

Dr,

Did you manage to get the straight shiraz from lake folly last year? I heard good things about it.

Only the Cabernets. That's all I've ever purchased from them. It usually sells out very quickly.

If @afro got hit for 3 btls plus freight then that 4/4 doesn't mean much...or perhaps there were 3 other boxes allocated before some divine intervention occured.

I was going to type it all out on a quite night but since someone already saw the 4/4 on the pic, I might as well response now. Long story short, yes there is 4 boxes since yesterday.

Now the long story, I did receive the small box first on Monday ,then the letter arrived the next day, usually there should have some tracking sticker on it but there wasnt any this time, I didn’t notice the 4/4 at first (trust me,the size of the box took my soul)until early dinner time the austpost guy show up and hand me the other 3 bigger boxes.

It’s 6 bottle of muscat, I thought that can show them how badly I wanted those other wines.

Received a letter saying they sadly couldn't fulfil my order but they have limited stock of the Shiraz Malbec and Muscat in stock if I was interested. Quick call later and I have 6 of the Shiraz Malbec coming my way. Second year of trying red crayon so it's better than nothing!

Looks like lots of people must have missed out on the Shiraz this year and be prepared to pay a premium for it.

Current bid for just 1 bottle of 2017 Shiraz at grays is over $134. Add in postage, buyers premium, credit card surcharge and that's over $180.
