  • I think you need to look closely at the quality of the glue you are using on your casks. At a First Choice outlet yesterday, the majority of the casks had the tops broken. Very annoying when I have to tape them up.

  • I bought a Rock Paper Scissors 2017 Sav Blanc which always is a trusted pick but this one was undrinkable it tastes of wet wood and is awful what’s doing? Even my husband couldn’t drink more than a sip and he has a forgiving palate It’s not what it’s normally like this and it’s the second time in a month we’ve had a dodgy one

  • In the last 3 weeks I have bought 3 casks of Sharaz from my local Coles store at Craigieburn. All 3 had the tap on the opposite side that it should have been. I liked the wine but found it very annoying 3 in a row.Is this a common fault with your wines.Sincerley Gerald Netley. 26, augusta ave. campbellfield 3061. Vic.
