Two blogs ago, in 7 Effective Habits of Highly Successful Guzzler Locaters I wrote about guzzlers. It was serendipitous!!! Yesterday I received a couple of newspaper inserts showing various retailer specials and they have some really great guzzlers!! For those of you in Brisbane you can get these without much effort.

Liquor Savers Superstore have a number of really good buys.

Top of my list is the 2004 Ingoldby Shiraz (from - guess where? – yep, McLaren Vale). It is selling for $11.95 per bottle. It usually sells for around $15-$18 per bottle and consistently rates very highly. Halliday rated the 2002 at 94/100. I have not seen any notes on the 2004 but year in and year out this has been a consistently good wine (since at least 1998).

Also good value is the Wynns 2004 Coonawara Shiraz at $13.95 per bottle and the 2004 Rouge Homme Coonawarra Cab Sav at $9.95 per bottle is a steal. The 2003 was rated at 90/100 and retailed for around $15.

Two of my other favourite guzzlers are Rawson’s Retreat Shiraz Cab $6.95 each and Penfold’s Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cab at $9.99. The Koonunga Hill is available at Mr Corks. These two wines are consistently good guzzlers. Don’t expect the Rawson’s Retreat to shoot out any lights at $6.95 but I have never been disappointed by it. The Koonunga Hill Shiraz Cab consistently rates in the high 80’s and low 90’s and, if you are patient, can almost always pick it up for under $10.

I am feeling thirsty! Gotta go!
