Cask wine "to go": (everywhere).
. Personal preference was de Bortoli Cab merlot. Morris Pressings (dry red) rated highly,(on a recent thread) so, as a dedicated beer drinker, I've just allocated an hour or so to judging.
. IMPO, they're both brilliant: the cab merlot is "sweet'neasy" , the dry red is "just that". Bloomin lovely.
. Thank you to the fellow cheap drunks who voted for Morris P. :nothing wrong with another arrow in the quiver, eh.
. Happy quaffing, safe driving.

Hi Jeff

You sure you weren't judging for more than an hour???

Sipping the old Morris Cab Sav at the moment (pressing range, 4lt box variety), quite another nice drop.

Geez,

I must be hard to please.
Haven't found a half decent "cardboard" red yet.

I'll just continue to take bottles of the good stuff.
Have three strong cartons, two six packs and a twelve pack. The six packs can both fit into the left hand cargo drawer together. The right hand drawer contains the vehicle recovery gear, whilst the left one contains our recovery gear.

We do rough it a bit though. We drink out of "plastic" wine glasses:-)

Have you, or Muddie's Doe (Trippin') tried the Yalumba 2 L casks?
I haven't, but none-the-less, am interetsed in an appraisal.

I carry bottled wine in recycled bubble wrap - can get 11 bottles in a 15 L Willow brand placcy tub, which fits into my home built storage unit. The rest sits in traditional cardboard box with its cardboard dividers.

Sometimes have to top up along the way. This is a last resort - it hurts paying those prices when I can supply my own, usually better quality, for about 1/3 the price. I do, however, respect the fact that they are entitled to a margin out there.

Cheers

Morris v Yalumba v Deborttoli v ect ect can get a bit like the Nissan v Toyota v Mitsubishi v ec ect , pointless excersise in trying to establish a " best" ,, after 3 glasses of even very cheap red it always seems to become "drinkable" and the same with even the most expensive wines as after the 1st 3 or 4 glasses of the good stuff it becomes "morish" and turns into a "quaffer" ,lol hic hic.

Ain't that the truth! Although being able to drink the FIRST glass is the reason for seeking decent cardboard....
