I'm away the next couple of days so this is my Friday thread. When I was a youngster most people seemed to drink white wine but the balance seems to be changing.

What is your preference?

I was out last night, after copious amounts of really good NZ Montana Chardonnay I think we can safely say mine is white, so if anyone has a good hangover cure, feel free to post it.

Um, now let me think, what's my favourite. Could it be RED!!! I love it!!

red... Chateau Lafite 1986

Red, almost exclusively. The darker and fruitier, the better. After years of studenty stuff like Liebfraumilch and Vinho Verde and Piat d'Or, the only whites I drink from choice nowadays are pudding wines, and that's a rare event.

Can anyone crash this thread?
Current favourite is White Grenache. (A rose for those that don't know). Very fruity. A bottle is gone before you know it. Mmmm. Now... tonight... running or wine... running or wine... running or wine....

red in the winter, white in the summer....on the number of days I'm driven home from work in the summer imaging a nice big glass of chilled white wine, down to the detail of the condensation(?) on the outside of the glass.....a nice Rioja goes a long way to lighten the spirits on a winters evening though too!

I love Rioja too!

Peet... Or should I call you spidy?
19/09/2002 at 10:46
Peet will probably get my attention quicker than spidy.
But saying that, 'Oi' gets my attention quite quickly too.

Has to be red.
Aussies reds are favourites, especially shiraz.

Big beefy reds, Aussie Shiraz (Wolf Blass), Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon (Torreon de Paredes Riserva), Grand Echezeaux, Barolo or, the biggest of them all, Amarone. But then again, I wouldn't say no to a glass of trockenbeerenauslese.

Evil Pixie?!!! M&S SELL ROSEMOUNT? One of my faves is the RM Shiraz!

As my drinking partner is still heavy with child, for the next few says or so at least, I've not been putting away as much wine as I'd like.

I tend to go white in the summer, red in the winter. Used to be big on chardonnay, but moved more into sauvignon blanc lately - ideally from New Zealand. Also been experimenting with antipodean Rieslings.

Why has nobody mentioned Thunderbird?

Surely Don Darias is an aftershave?

Thunderbird? Chunderbird! 14 and 17% by volume if I remember rightly.
Tough stuff. Liquor of the streets. Bargain basement prices too.
Probably good for unblocking drains too.
