God you just have to love a Conutry with a fucked up weather pattern like ours. My connections have told me that in our prime red grape growing district The Hunter Valley has recived too much rain just as the meger harvest was ripening. For some reason "bunch rot" has affected the red grapes more than the white. It seems that it will be very hard for the Vintners to produce a decent red out of the crop. Time will tell, I guess, as in all things.
