Australian wine gift ideas needed

I am going to be visiting a good friend in the US, and I want to give her some Australian wine. However, I am a wine ignoramus. Help me choose a good wine for my friend.

I'd like to get my friend 2-3 bottles of good Australian wine, ideally something she can't easily get in the US (but which I could get here in Sydney, either in a local shop or online). I'm kind of on a budget, so would like to spend around $100-$150.
I've asked someone who knows her, and she reportedly likes full bodied dry red wines the best. She particularly likes wine from Cotes du Rhone. However, I don't think there's any wine she particularly doesn't like, so if there is some really good or iconic Australian wine that doesn't fit that description, I could get her that.
Suggestions on what to look for or brands/vineyards/types of wine would be great.
