How do you tell if the offer is really a bargain? It's easy if a well-know wine is offered at a far lower price than normal but I want to dig a bit deeper by asking; when the offer is obscure or 'clouded' with no reference point will you see the bargain.
The Stratus is a terrific Sauvignon Blanc and is offered for $89 for the next two days. We specialise in warm climate reds and cool climate whites and this is a good rule for customers to follow as your successful rate will soar. I see fabulous value at $89.
WORDS FROM DAVID FARMER
'I might mention that all the effort of wine writers and show judges is expended on finding what are the best wines which makes it very easy what to recommend if you wish to spend $50 on a bottle. Try approaching it from the other end and find a wine for $70 a case which will delight and surprise you.'
