Reasonably priced Australian wine recommendations

Looking for recommendations on some inexpensive / reasonably priced Australian wines (red or white). Preferably wines not commonly available in the US, to bring back as Christmas gifts. Thanks!

what do you consider reasonable ... what may be reasonable to me may be expensive to you (or vice versa). If you put in a $$ amount people will have a better idea and you'll get lots more suggestions

Great choices, KVE, especially the Vasse!

Another good way of chosing wine is to go to the Dan Murphy website http://danmurphys.com.au/dm/home.jsp

Select the type of wine and price category you are after.

You will see some wines have a small purple icon with a point rating. That's the rating given by James Halliday (as in the wine companion author as recommended above) Anything rated higher than 90 points is good, higher than 95 is outstanding.

If you are in Sydney CBD, go & sample a few at Wine Odyssey in The Rocks & have a chat to them. They have a great range of Australian wines & you can sample as little as 1/4 glass.

You would probably be able to buy the wines at a better rate at Dan Murphy's, but you'll get great info from the Wine Odyssey people - and be able try a good range without having to buy the bottle.

If you have time, ask to see the Aroma Room.
