A short while ago, on the way to the bank we stopped by at our local liquor store.
Again, the cheapest wines were the Australian wines.
Say what, are those descendants of the prisoner detritus from England dumping or what?
This time, we picked up Banrock Station 2006 Merlot from South Eastern Australia for $6.99 (750ml).
As we feverishly type away, we are sipping the Banrock Station 2006 Merlot with Vegetable Shami Kebab and Indian Sev mixture on the side.
