For a bottle under $10, I love most of the Yellow Tail wines, especially the Shiraz.
Keltin, fwiw, Yellowtail wines are different in USA than in OZ.... for the US market, they add SUGAR to the wines!

In the same price range, Lindeman's, Rosemount low end and Banrock Station are all much better made wines.

Ripple and Manichevitz hehehe NOT!!! Actually, I'm not much of a wine drinker, but I've heard that a glass of red wine helps your heart. Is Lambrusco a red wine?

Sorry no. The only one I'm familiar with here is not a good one! It's the stuff that young girls drink when they want to be a cheap drunk. Or it was when I was a girl - not that I was a cheap drunk I might (very quickly) add!!!!

I am about 15 mins from the Swan Valley and my brother lives in Busselton so we are surrounded by vineyards and cellar doors, so we don't usually go into liquor stores very often in our family. Tend to not buy below the A$15 price point as a rule cos while there are some very good cheapies, unless you really know your wines, you can get some real shockers. Above A$15, in my experience, is a bit more reliable. There are quite a few cheap cleanskins though that are good value, but you just don't know who you are drinking. Some of those are very good for under A$10, but it is a lucky dip.

I don't really drink much .. usually only once a year .. New Year's Eve!! LoL And then, it's just a glass of Champagne. If the health stuff wasn't just with the RED, I'd drink the champagne, I love it. No chance of there being a red champagne, huh? :-)
