Yet Another New Member

Posted by njhic, Jun 1, 2011.

Hi,

I am a new member here, hailing from NJ [not so much wine here, but nobody can beat us on blueberry wines :)]

I am a novice in matters of wine appeciation/admiration. Got hooked into wine only recently, within the last 6 months. I have a preference for white wines,  especially those from Alsace and Germany. Recently, I have been drinking some California Zinfandel too.

It feels great to be here on Snooth...

Welcome, njhic. Rieslings only, or also Gewurtz? I like them both a lot, too.

Cheers

Welcome, if you like Alsace whites, I will have to try and influence you to try some Australian Rieslings

If you need any advice or guidance on Aussie wines, just yell out

Thank you all, for the warm welcome.

@dmcker, I *love* Gewurztraminer -- I think that was the first non-Merlot, non-chardonnay wine that I ever tried, probably a Fetzer one, before I tried the Alsace ones.

@SH, Australian Rieslings are definitely in my list. So many wines to try, so few evenings :(

HI!  I'm new to Snooth also.  I work at a winery here in MO.  We are kind of known for our White wines.  I am assuming that you like the sweetness of the German whites?  If you EVER see a wine in your shop from Herman MO it is safe to say that that will be a sweet wine.  just thought you would like the info and maybe branch out from the German wines.  Also...ever tried a pino grigio?  They are a little drier than Reislings and such, but still fruity and crisp.  Cheers

@SH: Any particular Aussie  riesling that you recommend? I am in a mood to try one this week :)

 

@WLStephanie: Yes, I like the clean sweetness of the German rieslings etc. Frankly, I had never thought of MO as wine country. Shows my ignorance. If I ever come across any wine from MO, I will buy a bottle to try. Pinot Grigio? Oh yes, by the bucket.

@SH: Thank you -- this list looks good!

[I had visited my local wine store on Saturday (before seeing your comment) and the only Riesling they had was Yellow Tail, and I decided to pass.]
