This is the second release of the Colonial Estate wines. The prices were good on the last one so if you want expensive wine at a bargain price its worth taking a look and getting an order in.

I'll post the link to the earlier thread below.

    Just thought I'd pop back in with an update on my purchase of a dozen Colonial Estate Exile shiraz which was reduced from $220 to $29.99 per bottle. Getwinesdirect were a pleasure to deal with, customer service was very efficient, friendly and helpful. The wine arrived well presented in a wooden crate stamped with the Colonial Estate Crest. I presented it to my husband with tasting notes and info from the winemaker's website. Happily, the wine lived up to all the hype and my husband was totally delighted. He considers this wine comparable to Grange.

    I would not normally spend so much on wine (thanks to Winemarket vouchers and deals) but this deal was too good to refuse. GWD sold out of the Exile in record time, but it may be worth leaving your name and contact number with them in case they receive more. I missed out on the first release, and only got the second release because I left my name and number with them and they called me when more stock came in. It's worth mentioning that so long as you order a minimum of 12 bottles of wine, you are able to mix your 12 bottles from anything they have in stock on their website.

    So, thanks Donkey for posting the original deal. I would never have found out about it without you! I really appreciate Buckscoop. You guys do a fantastic job! Cheers :)

    :) - great to hear that you got some of the Exile Shiraz. I'd been wondering how good it actually was. The price at Get Wines Direct was truly superb.

    Thanks for the feedback - nice to hear happy people after finding something on buckscoop.

    Looks like they still have some of the types still available - was just able to check through 12 bottles of The Colonial Estate Mungo Park Single Vineyard Old Vine Shiraz 2008 - although that may just be the website not having proper stock control on it.
