Birds of a Feather Flamin Galah Shiraz 2005

Do I write up this wine?  A marriage of Hunter Valley and Langhorne Creek fruit, where both the bride and groom may be perhaps surprised to have met?  It's not meant to be fine wine at $80 for a dozen, but people buy it, so I think it's still worthwhile saying something about it.  This wine not unpleasant - a simple quaffing wine, with ripe fresh fruit flavours on the nose, and a simple easy to drink palate.  77 points.

Abv: 13.5%
