I never “got” Swan Terrace, until tonight.
Opened a 2013 Horseshoe Pinot last week. It was excellent, these wines really show well with a bit of age.

I haven't gotten an email from Rhys. Is this a staged thing, where different groups get it at different times, or is everyone getting an offer now?

Last thing I got from Rhys was the Hillside offer in August.
