Why is so much aus red wine so rough.

Much of our red wine is not worth the money being asked and in my opinion, cheap cask wine is better than $10< bottled wine.

I've tried other wine suppliers (one of the online ones) and one bottle from them was simply awful, with no money-back guarantee like Cellarmasters( which I have used, it's real- having received credit for 2 medium range wines which were not off, just bland and tatseless- a grenache).

Rusty says: If you're wine is too rough, then try blended wines. For red, a nice cabernet savignon merlot. For while a semillion savignon blanc. These can be bought for under $10 and are quite palatable. Remember to let your red breath. If you decant it, you don't wait that long! Reply

You might go through a few cases before you find one or two you really like.
