Every correct response will go in the draw to win a bottle of this excellent wine.

Each week I provide 10 clues upon which to base your answer. 

Please email your answer and postal address to [email protected], rather than leaving it in the comments, to avoid spoiling it for others.

Last week's winner was a doozy and stumped more than a few entrants. However, John Lannen of East Maitland in NSW correctly answered Chairman Mao. Congratulations John, your bottle of delicious wine will soon be on its way!

So here is this week’s mystery!
