Aka Aussia wine

"The idea with this is that a person who might be buying some chops or some vegetables for their evening meal can also pick up a bottle of wine in the same place.

"There is absolutely no evidence to suggest that that sort of person is displaying irresponsible consumption of alcohol.

Always assuming that one person doesn't quaff the whole bottle in one session, which (let's face it) is probably a real possibility for single Australian wine connoisseurs. Including Sheilas, though to be fair they probably don't become as violent on a skin full (might be wrong about that...).
