Oh, and by the way.

I believe that I have found the bomb, v2.0. Stoped by Plantagenet here in Mount Barker this afternoon, and discovered that their Mount Barker shiraz is incredibly good stuff. That now makes a grand total of two red wines I've tried in Australia that have left me with a ridiculously big grin on my face. I'm impressed.

The top ten so far, in no particular order:

1 Clonakilla shiraz/viognier
2 Leeuwin riesling
3 Plantegenet Mt Barker shiraz
4 Grosset Watervale riesling
5 Rosemount grenache-shiraz-mourvédre
6 That Tassie pinot noir that I can never remember the name of
7 Penfolds St Henri shiraz
8 Pelorus NV (I know, it's not Australian, but hey, it's practically made by Aussies)
9 Flinders Bay Agincourt cabernet malbec
10 Brown Brothers barbera, Tahbilk marsanne, or something along those lines for the obligatory quirky entry in the top ten
