Cellarone is having a Black Friday sale at 10% off sitewide, alongside their current 12 Stars of Christmas deals, means that some wines are further marked down.
I personally went for the St Hallett Blackwell 2018 Shiraz 95pt. After buying one box (6) of the St Hallett Blackwell 2017 Shiraz 97pt, I have since bought an additional 2 boxes and I feel like I have now been spoiled by this. I know the vintage means it will differ, but at $24 a bottle I think it's worth the risk.

Blurb from the page:
'The wine was first released in 1994, in honour of Stuart Blackwell, winemaker for more than three decades and a tireless contributor to the St Hallett story. The fruit is sourced predominately from Northern Barossa with the red brown clay soils creating wines with hallmark characteristics of black plum, cherries and dark chocolate’, Helen McCarthy, Chief Winemaker.
This wine is a vibrant deep red colour with purple hues and the nose displays a bright bouquet with layers of blackberry, dark chocolate and hints of vanilla. A full bodied wine with excellent framework and a multitude of layers. Instantly apparent are blackberry and black cherry fruit with hints of dark chocolate and vanilla characters laying over top. A very decadent and opulent wine with a balanced palate, excellent structure and refined texture.
