Spanish list looks pretty good, would go with the Spanish first if money's an issue. Don't really know the Aussie wines, other than hearing the Mollydooker tends to be a relatively overpriced fruit bomb.

If your local has Monte Real Reserva, that's a very good deal at 20 dollars or so.  I have some experience with your first Spanish and recommend it if the price is right... which I don't see above.  Where is StephenHarvey at these days?  That's the go-to for Aussie, yes?
