Try luscious rich chardonnays with a tropical flare and their signature spicy shiraz. Mad Fish, Rosemount, Penfold's are the major players. In the Shiraz arena, try Hope, Hill of Gold, D'Arenburg or RockBare. Also discover merlot and cabernet from Down Under. Try Black Opal or Buckeley's blend of Cab-Merlot. The Australian/New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc is a nice light vacation form some of the heavier California's. Try Dyed in the Wool, Nautilus, or our favorite Jackson Estate. For collectors; enjoy Henscke, Jim Barry, Peter Lehman, or some of Penfold's top tier Bin 707 Cabernet.
