Original Coupon Deal
I've got no idea what this wine is like but for ~$3.50 a bottle delivered I'm not going to be too fussy.
20% off for referrer. $25 off first order for referee.
Bottom 12% of wines in The World
Bottom 8% of wines from Upper Hunter Valley
but 3.3 out of 5 sounds not too bad
By Vivino standards it's pretty bad.
But a good price for cooking wine.
My dozen arrived yesterday and I had a glass last night.
Its pretty ordinary but still drinkable. Better than the $5 cleanskin that BWS sells, so @ $3 a pop I guess Ive won out?!
maybe put it in another way - only 5 reviews, not a popular wine, and 4 out of 5 rated 3 or below
Plus, the winery have 52 wines, with an Average Rating of 3.5 out of 545 Ratings
Bought. Cheap enough to roll the dice. No idea what it's like, however this seems like a great opportunity to post the following:
lol @wine tasting moves. my motto is, if its new, i'll try it out. if i like it, i buy more; if i dont like it, i dont buy more. unfortunately, 12 is a lot in case i dont like it. so i'll hold off for this one
Agreed. I too would roll the dice on one bottle, but not 12
I would like to thank just wines for selling me the shiraz made of the grapes that got smoke damaged. Just like landline said "it's like drinking from an ashtray." GOODLUCK WITH YOUR JUSTWINES PURCHASES.
Sad End of an Era
Review of James Estate Wines
Reviewed November 29, 2013
Now this was one great winery & it is sad to see it slipping into decline. The vinter left to start his own winery at Stanhope about 4 years ago but his legacy of great wine continued until their distributor went belly up in 2013, thereby impounding their wines which are now available through Grey's online @ $3 - 4 dollars ea. They continue to trade in an adverse market & it's difficult to see them coming out the other side.
Date of experience: November 2013
… some years later:
"Former Hunter Valley vineyard owner David Anthony James has been charged with being involved in a cheque fraud scheme worth almost $20 million."
in 2013, Mr James’ Hunter Valley print and wine empire collapsed, leaving company debts of more than $25 million.
James Estate has been an established wine brand in the Hunter since the 1990s and still operates from a cellar door at Pokolbin and a cellar-door winery near Baerami, about 25 kilometres west of Denman.
In March 2016, police launched Strike Force Farrington to track how $5 million worth of Australia’s best wines vanished without trace amid the wreckage of the liquidated wine empire.
——— but hey, $3/bottle. And I've had good experience with Justwines in the past. They were quick to sort out a problem.
