I mean, they make some Rieslings in Australia that I've been wanting to try.

Battaglene works with around 800 wine producers in Australia who have "built their businesses" around exporting to China and are now left with no backup plan, he added.

How about bailing them out?

Is Barossa Valley still the go to region for big reds or is there something else I should consider?

Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers would find it very difficult to get inside a bottle together!

The Yellow Tail Shiraz is fantastic and seems to pair well with anything that isn't underwater.

The red wines will keep and actually improve in quality so drink up the white wines while they are a glut on market. Difficulty: try not to turn into a Karen in the process.

Doesn't everything in Australia try to kill you? Is the wine safe or does it have live razor ants in it?

that's a good one, but I still only go for the Malbec. (Narrator: he has no idea how to pronounce Malbec.)

Klom Dark: Doesn't everything in Australia try to kill you? Is the wine safe or does it have live razor ants in it?


I only buy the stuff in box-form, so it most-defs tries to kill my already-undead liver. farking Land Of Chocolate, they try to ruin everything.

Clare Valley Rieslings are always a nice pick.

sonnyboy11: Is Barossa Valley still the go to region for big reds or is there something else I should consider?


I prefer Barossa for its Rieslings.  McLaren Vale for it's Shiraz.  For the big reds a good heavy Cab Sav, you need to aim for Coonawarra.

Best of all it was an Australian invention :) 5 litres of wine for less than $20, that last for days (if you do not drink it all.)

I don't like stuff that sucks. Australian wine tastes like farts and sadness.
