No doubt in my mind a gallon of gasoline will cost more than this stuff!

I actually just took the picture and put the bottle back.  Didn't buy it.  Not a big Shiraz fan.  Sorry.

I tried it last year. Can't remember the vintage. I recall it was better than just palatable. Perhaps average to slightly above average for a Sarah. With that said, it was only remarkable because of its label.

I was able to find a distributor in the US. I picked up a few bottles, saving it for a special occasion - not sure what yet but it will be radio related :)

Good Fun!  I ran into this the other day at the local purveyor of adult beverages.  Had to buy a bottle.

The XYL is a big fan of Shiraz, and she was pleased with it.  As far as Shiraz goes, I can take it or leave it.  But this was rather good for screw-cap wine.  Better than box wine, and best of all, it has big bold dots and dashes on the label.

I'll buy another bottle the next time I see it :)
