Re the 2013 Serafino Reserve Tempranillo finding it quite nice today after delivery this AM. (Might have been helped by cycling exercise a bit earlier) .Complimented the Viet food at lunch - some Pho Soup and Pork Buns, A very drinkable drop & one of my better buys this year ValueForMoney
With my dismal palate hope it tastes as good next bottle in a week or so :}
First case (6) of 2017 F/Friends arrived today, now $18ea.
Tasted it - nothing but pure bliss in a glass, and even
at 15% ABV no alcohol burn, lots of fruit, tannins there but moderate, a pretty big wine.
The label has David ANDERSON Wild Ck and Ian RATHJEN Whiltling Eagle as winemakers.
For info. Wouldn't tell the world or we'll never buy it at this money again 😁

Wow, you’re not wrong. Was a bargain at $12, I hope it comes down again. I grabbed a few, plus some of the “made for Dan’s” Curly Flat pinot for $20

Finished the FF tonight, I'd say the labels "Please decant prior to serving" is spot on.
Remained a first rate drop for the three days, no huge improvement (to me) and don't really think the wine needs a long breathing period as long as it is decanted. YMMV of course.
A second case, the one at $12ea arrived today, nice to have this stash put away :)

Yr Curly Flat @ $20 was a good buy, not a grape I drink though :cool:
Hi servicerequired

Great posts re Mildura. V/Line (coaches serve Swan Hill, connecting to/from trains, I have often used) is more reliable!

Milly no longer has TV news so Qantas ought count itself lucky, and as you probably know, 'Sunraysia Daily' is now online only, although there's a News Ltd online competitor.

Hi Gazza if you need a pass I have one available that doesn't expire till October. If you cant get one that expires earlier let me know and I will let you have this one
Hi randompunter, I think you must be the member that joined vinomofo and made a very recent purchase. If you'd like the name and contact details for my wine advisor at VM let me know. He is a top bloke and they do not work on commission. Has good advice.
Cheers
