They are very affordable Steve. For the price, this to me is a great investments. 

 

I am also converting my little store room  into a celler, thanks to your  great idea. However, I plan to go further with 100mm coolroom panels all around ceiling and walls. Need your expert inputs once it’s undrrway. I use the window insert AC from Kevinator 2.2kW unit. Any thoughts?

Sounds like a good plan using the panels.

 

Get the best quality and size unit you can ( inverter if possible).

 

I went budget with my first unit and only got about 6 years from it (it’s on 24/7), the second unit is bigger / better quality and very efficient and working easier, so hopefully get 10 years plus from it.

 

Its a real pain replacing units if they die during the hot months.

 

Good luck....happy to chat further on how to manage humidity which is very important also.

I like 28 better than 128, and it is not expensive at all but will develop quite well, I have been putting them away with the 389, definitely worth keeping a few in the cellar.

Hi Steve and all,
 
I have tried out the Penfolds Bin28 2016. To my surprise it was better than I anticipated. I think in time, it will be yum yum..... wonder what your thoughts/verdict for them? 
 
For me it seems to have great potential. I bought three cases for test drive and ended up ordered another five not long after testing the first bottle.

My experience with 28 agree with your comment wholeheartedly.

I think we share same findings here. 

 

Currently giving this acquisition a blind test! 😂

Year in and year out Wynn’s Black Label Cab Sav is a ripping good drink and a relative bargain to stash away.

 

This 2004 looked great upon opening and looking forward to testing properly later with some dinner.

Never had an 8 before, although not as compact as 389, it is a very nice drop after cellaring, possible last for another few years but I think it is at its best, very deep red colour and very smooth, do has a trace of 389 in there. I am very happy with that with some Chinese roast pork (with the crackling of course) tonite.
Some tunes after, and should be even better.20190426_201225.jpeg

Dinner for the father in law last night.

A very different shiraz from Frankland River that I thought was pretty darn good if you could put aside the brains prior expectations

Also had a Chris Ringland Reservation Shiraz in a more traditional Barossa style. Very enjoyable. 2765bda425e9e304a9c5f126f9449bda.jpg

Untill late 90s Koonunga Hill was an excellent wines for QPR and surprisingly they can cellar for long. I haven't tried any of it lately, but quality has gone down the hill drastically as they focus more on $.
