I know Australian "critter wines" have something of a bad reputation, but I keep drinking this predictably tasty wine year after year and find I often enjoy it more than a lot of other red wines costing 4 times as much. Ripe berry fruit, satisfying velvety texture, no off notes - which is incredible for a wine this widely available and this inexpensive. - HK 2009-04-11
