Don't overchill else the subtle peachy Viognier component will be swamped by the cool acidity. Medium to full bodied, ripe and rounded initially with a crisp acidity supplying life to the Chardonnay fruit. I rather like it - it makes for a good, easy-d...

So, in an effort to return to being more of a presence here I'll start posting some new threads. I'm also going on vacation, I know imagine that, so I may not be able to answer everyday next week, but I'm gonna try.What was your wine(s) of the year?I'm digging through my notes to find mine. I have several lined up, a few of which will be rolled ... Read More
You could put this under "Wine and Travel," but here's the idea: dmcker responded to something I said about Cline wines that got me thinking. Some wines are good, but not necessarily worth seeking out. They're completely enjoyable, reliable from vintage to vintage, affordable, and widely found. These aren't always the experiences we are afte... Read More
Hi Guys,Riesling is not a wine i know much about but i want to try out some (reasonably priced.)Mainly it will be with food, probably Chinese. I do not like anything too sweet so it's got to be on the drier side.At the moment i am enjoying Australian wine, i have seen some Tim Adams 2008 Riesling and Jim Barry The Lodge both on special offer. Or... Read More

What's the worst wine you have ever had? I had some Don Luciano Shiraz over the weekend (which is a $4.00 wine I picked up at Wal-Mart...just to see). I had had the Don Luciano Chardonnay and it was OK, but the Shiraz I had smelled like road kill (very heavy sulfur)--I wonder if I got a bad bottle. Has anyone else tried it? Read More
From another thread:GregT: " Oh it makes my ears bleed. I need to go and drink a bottle of Sang de Cailloux"Dmcker: "So what's the 'terroir' for the blood of stones? Great naming for a domaine. Too bad you can't really get away with that type of name in English. Guess we have to suffice with 'Big House' or 'Suckfizzle' or '10 Minutes by Tractor'... Read More
