PH, it's an even more interesting choice for a moniker given that "Reblaus" translates directly to "Phylloxera" (at least via Google Translate!).
Vinelouse, it's not at all surprising that someone who grew up on Gruner Veltliner and Riesling would not take a shine to Aussie Shiraz. Although these wines can be very high quality, they provide a very narrow expression of what good wine can be. Try to keep yourself open to other wines styles and you'll find the rewards.
Even with the occasional Aussie Shiraz!
