I think we'll likely see the end of amazingly good value Aussie wines here in the near future: this might be a good time to stock your cellar with ones you like before you wind up paying a lot more for them by the end of the year. Me, I've already done so (albeit accidentally): over the last five years, I've built up quite a collection. Now that I live in a much smaller house with only a refrigerated wine cabinet (and not a proper cellar), I have way more wine than storage, which means I really haven't bought any since moving to San Diego. Instead, I'm slowly drinking down what I have. I can only hope that when it's all gone in 2012 or so that the US dollar will be strong again, so I can start stocking up again.
I know I'm a spoiled middle class brat, but damn it: I miss the days of cheap imports, overseas vacations, and shipping. I'm excited to be going to New Zealand for Christmas, but frustrated that it's going to cost double what it did when we visited the first time back in 2000. Grrrrr.
