Best price on this one for a while. Cellar One are offering 20% off when you add two cases (i.e. 2 x 6pks) to your cart, bringing the price for 12 down to $288 or $24 per bottle. New members will be able to score $20 off, bring the price down to $22.3 per bottle which is the lowest I can remember for the Filsell. Also a great deal for existing members with stored Cellar Dollars they are wanting to use.

‘2018 is an exceptional representation of this wine showing depth and power with restraint. This wine can be enjoyed young but will also cover many decades. The 2018 Filsell exemplifies what the Barossa Valley does so well’, Craig Stansborough, Chief Winemaker.
