Yep, two bottles down the sink! When buying at auction you only know the vineyard, grape variety, region and vintage and this looked great on paper but reading the label after purchase clearly states drink before 2009 and they don’t show you that in the auction details!
The gamble with auctions means you must be prepared to lose and you must know your wine, but taking a punt on occasion has delivered wine of awesome unexpected quality… overall the experience has been positive and that’s the fun part…. On this occasion the clean skin Shiraz won!
I am sitting here now drinking the cheap clean skin shaking my head in disbelief… BUGGER!
