My sister emigrated to Australia years ago, and is now living in Brisbane, and her 50th birthday is coming up. Our parents and I are still back in the UK, and we want to buy here something special for her birthday.
Our mother suggested we combine our resources and buy her a selection of good wines - Sis apparently enjoys Australian wine, so it would make sense to order a mixed case online for delivery (with flowers?) on the day.
Can anyone recommend an Australian wine merchants that would offer that sort of service online? And the wines themselves? Not your cheap plonk, but not necessarily hugely expensive stuff - something that she’d not normally buy, a little out of her range perhaps for routine quaffing - but in enough quantity to keep her going for a while.
Background information: she’s on a decent wage as a corporate Personal Representative, but has large household bills, so she’s probably treading water in a middle-class kind of financial way. And she seems to enjoy red and white wines pretty much equally, so a mix of the two would seem sensible.
And she’s not an occasional tippler, either. She likes her wine.
Budget? I don’t know - at least £50, but not more than £100. Sort of.
Any pointers would be most welcome.
