Good tip Jono, I would recommend this as a great way to compare like wines. ie Try the best in that varietal and then experiment with other "more affordable" types and compare.

Spend your first $700 on a combination of the following, 1998 d'Arys Original Shiraz Grenache $17 (2000-2013), 1997 Lindemans Limestone Ridge Shiraz Cabernet $36 (2002-20120, 1998 Wynns Shiraz $14 (2001-2011), Tatachilla Keystone Shiraz Grenache $17-$24 (now to 2003), 1998 Wirra Wirra Church Block Cab, Shiraz, Merlot $20 (2003-2008), 1997 Coldstream Hills Reserve Chardonnay $42 (now to 2006).
Then with your last $300 go to an auction and get a Penfolds Grange, and drink it!
Then you can always compare what you drink with the best.

Find a "drink-now" red you like that is inexpensive, buy that and enjoy it.
Wines like Wynns Shiraz, Ingoldby Cab Sav, some of the cheaper Penfolds, Lindeamns, Seppelts offerings (quality multi-region blends). Work out how much you need to drink over 2 - 3years and buy that (a bottle a month for three years is 3 cases at $12 a bottle is $432)
Ok so now you'got ~$600 to buy a case or two of ageing wine.
Buy three 6-packs
maybe some StHuberts Cab Sav, Petaluma Coonawarra, Wynns Cab sav, Barwang Cab Sav, Seppelts Great Western Shiraz, Stanton And Killeeen Durif, Seven Hills Shiraz, Bannockburn Shiraz (or Clonakilla Shiraz) - gee its a big world out there - you need to start spending a $1,000 a month to cover enough territory to be drinking well every night....

Hope that helps

Your collection must include the d'Arenberg Custodian Grenache. Im sure you will get several responses re: Cabernets, but this wine is a must and will be drinking vv well in 5 years. Much lighter than the Tintara Shiraz, but with such rich fruit it is really remarkable, just needs a few years for the tannins to settle

JC, I would recommend you the '98 Hardys Tintara shiraz and, I think, can still be purchased for around $26 per bottle at coogeebayhotel liquorbarn, if you are in Syddney. I have tried 96 vintage and it was absolutely superb for its price!
Happy cellaring

Can anyone suggest a selection of wines to start a cellar that can be drunk now and in 5 years so that I can enjoy it now and add to it with time. I predominantly enjoy reds, with roast beef my favourite meal!
Thankyou all for your suggestions
