Goundrey Reserve Mt Barker Riesling 2008 - $13.95 (another constellation wine) from Winemakers Choic

3 August 2009

Am having fun here. This is another of the constellation brands knock down wines. It won the gold medal for Riesling at the Qantas wine show and got a 95/100 rating from James Halliday in the 2010 wine companion.

If your buying it might be worth double checking that $13.95 is the best price you can get on it. From what I can find its good, with the original price being $25 or so and the nearest online competitor I can find is selling at $16 a bottle.

Delivery cost from winemakers choice is in the range of $8 to $20 depending on where you are and they charge a 2.5% of the value of the wine in 'insurance', which I guess is fair enough. At least you can claim if the wine dies on route.

    If you particularly dislike labels, it's also available as a cleanskin for $12.95 a bottle at Get Wines Direct - Goundrey Reserve Riesling 2008 Cleanskin :p Postage cost is $7.50, and you have to order by the dozen. On face value slightly cheaper than the initial offer, although actually about the same once you factor in the cashback from Wine Makers Choice.

    Get Wines Direct allows you to mix and match a case. You need to order in quantities of 12, but you can choose those 12 from across the range.
