Default the WINE thread (???)

Includes any grape based drink you indulge in, port (), Madeira, sherry, champagne etcs

I see the beer thread is going well, was wondering if anyone was a fan of wine? Judging from the demographic here its probably a long shot. For me it is the GOAT drink, nothing gets close aside from perhaps a glass of coke with ice and lime on a stiflingly hot day.



Became a member of the Wine Society a year ago and have got into it, planning to do a WSET level 2 course at some point this summer. Enjoy Port, Sauternes and Burgundian whites (boring, I know) but trying to expand my horizons.

Any recommendations etcs?

Had two good bottles of shiraz tonight. A day without at least one bottle is a failure, unfortunately.

Hunter Valley wineries are right nearby to where I live.
More renowned for Shiraz, but prefer Cabernet Merlot varieties.
This one's alright for a mid-range price:



Otherwise Yellowtail from the Riverina area:

Another wine drinker. I enjoy both beer and wine a lot. Hardly goes a day without a bottle of beer or a glass of wine.

Don't drink spirits and hard liquor though. Beer and Wine are much more enjoyable to me.

Yellowtail is very popular here in Canada, but I don't like it too much. There are much better Australian wines IMO.

I spent some time in South Africa several years back and had some really good wines there. Liked their Shirazes the best. Two that I still remember. Both outstanding:
