2006 Colonial Estate Explorateur Shiraz, Australia – Episode151

By Patrick

Australia gets a bad rap by a lot of people who think they know something about wine. Really it comes down to trying different regions and trusting people that generally like the same wines you do. This wine was picked up on Cinderellawine.comwhich is an offshoot site of Wine Library. However on they offer an amazing deal once a night at 9pm Eastern time until it sells out or the next one goes up the following night. So what does 9pm have to do with Cinderella? well nothing.

    I couldn't agree more about the quality of wines from Australia. A lot of people started relating Australia to bulk wines, but Australia has so many incredible wines with many still being well priced. There are so many regions to explore just in Australia and great wines at all price points.




    Yeah I agree there def is a Barossa profile that got in a rut but there are a lot of great easy drinking wines – just hate to see them all get trashed

    nice little diatribe… got the same juice during that cinderalla deal, even though I have been away from Australia for a while, and figured this would be a good bet, and it sure was. Have one left in the cellar.


    really was a nice drinking wine- sad I do not have more at that price-
