So here I am at the Down & Out bar in St James’s square.

I am drinking one of the nicest wines I’ve tasted in weeks. Ok, days…

It’s a 2003 Paulliac drinking like a dream.

The price? Just £10 for a half bottle.

Just a few years ago this would have been a sinful indulgence – $30 AUD for a half (equivalent to a $60 bottle).

Now?

Just $15 ($30 a full bottle)

AUD $15 for a perfectly aged Paulliac?

Amazing.

But its no wonder our poor exporters are doing it tough.
