Mudgee grows more grapes than the Hunter region now. Newcastle is where the Hunter River meets the sea. But more wine making is done in the Hunter, commonly with Mudgee grapes. I have practised my profession in Mudgee and now live in Newie. Mudgee is littered with dozens - literally - of very small winemakers. To know even half of them would be an achievement. I knew some of the winemakers personally because they consulted me. Mr Frog Rock was one of them. I fixed his back, he gave me plonk, so my opinions are biased.

Bushranger has a very good reputation, speschly their '09 Shiraz.

I have never tried Bob Oatley's stuff, but it is reknown.

And I think Bob has connections with Tik Tok too, so I am willing to say that's a safe bet.

Sounds as if youse guys are getting all our top shelf plonk afterall.



Margaret River is a good region for Verdelho.

The best Aussie wine name is Chook Shed. Yanks don't get it!

Aussie wine connoisseurs...


And all this time I thought Aussies only drank Foster's.

You have to have a very educated tongue to appreciate the full depth of Fosters.

When I say "Fosters is good", I not be serious. I'd rather drink cat's pi5s.
