Looking for a white wine

Posted by jesdocswife, Dec 23, 2009.

Hi I am new with wine and I want to find a white wine that is sweet like the green grapes. Like in the evening have a glass of wine my husband or a friend with maybe some cheese. I tried (Eccoi Domani ) Pinot Grigro 2008. This is taste so bad I had it at Texas Land and Cattle. Please if any one can find a name or a wine that is good. But I do want a white wine.

Sounds like you should be looking for a fruity, off-dry white. Riesling is the natural place to look. The best from Germany usually have assertive acids and may be a bit too much. Take a look at Riesling from the Pacific Northwest and California. Many are fruity and even grapey.

Seems like you have a redundant thread here (and some somewhat duplicate answers between the two):

You would probably like Moscato. Elmo Pio Moscato tastes very much like juicy green grapes and is very refreshing. Its also pretty inexpensive. http://www.snooth.com/wine/elmo-pio... Also Torrontes as mentioned above is really good.

Try the Castello de Poggio Moscato....have heard this stuff Olive Garden can't keep...bought some at local store..7.99 ....will be goin back for more...another good one is Allegro another favorite of mine...might even try Sutter Home Moscato 06/07..hope this helps...Castello is the sweetest of the 3.

Probably better, or more efficient anyway, to keep this in one thread, as I've already (again reduntantly) said above:

These are consistent wines that are from Australia
reds must be chilled.

Newer users don't know of the old threads and you might get a whole different range of responses from different users. No biggie if some things get repeated. I certainly for one, don't read every forum topic! hehehe

An affordable semi-dry white that I love is Colombelle, a french wine that has the distinct taste of green grapes (sounds exactly like what you're looking for). My husband is french and introduced it to me this past week for the first time. It is delicious and fruity, a wonderful wine. Bonus: it's not too pricey, we found it for $6.99!

Vegas, if you'll jump the link I posted twice in this thread you'll see that the same person (jesdocswife) created two links with *very* slightly different naming, at the exact same time. The other link had more specific, detailed responses, though this link seems to be gaining legs.

Considering how many posts are going up in a short period of time these days, some of them spam, etc., etc., it makes me think Snooth may need a forum moderator at some point to ensure efficiency in the face of a mushrooming user population. GregDP has traditionally served that capacity but he's wearing so many hats these days and thus hasn't been able to participate in the forum as he has in the past. Nothing against Greg at all, far from it since he's been the heart and soul of the visible part of Snooth. Just that he on his own isn't really 'scalable', and that as Snooth grows different solutions will be needed to ensure that forum content and accessibility remain pithy, vital, easy and with the fewest possible obstacles to effective use. Very new threads can get quickly pushed to page two and relative oblivion these days, and so when I see an egregious example like this double posting with the newer posters not seeing that they're reinventing the wheel to the same person (and not benefiting from the comments in the other of the duplicate threads), then I make the kind of remark I did above...
