Thanks Bruce, there was a real character eh. Remember some of his wines from the early days. Rothbury wasn`t it?

One of my Oz articles I just looked up, talks about the time he identified glasses of tap water from the major cities in the land of Oz! He was right with each one!! Should try that here.
His books are around, guess some reading tonite.

It's sad ... I'll have to look for something special and Australian to uncork in his memory.

In addition to Bob's link, here's an interview about him on ABC, Australian TV:
