    Over the years, I have given plenty of Reislings and Gewürztraminers ample tastings. They are just too sweet for my palate.

    This delicious South African white wine--Little J White, produced by Joostenberg--is my find of the Summer. It's a Chenin Blanc with a touch of Viognier, which balances off the acidity.

    I'm a dick. Actually, I wasn't posting for a while and hadn't thought about the thread until you folks fired it up. It would be perfect into the Fall, too, JS.

    Nice. What have you been drinking these days? Have you stopped into Suburban?

    If she likes sweet wine, try a Vin Santo which is an amber colored dessert wine from Tuscany. Sweet, but not cloyingly so.

    Delicious.

    I have been drinking gallons and gallons of Sav Blanc and Pinot Griggio in my "O" glasses with lots of ice. Think ice water with alcohol in it Bought a case of Timmy's Apremont a little while back and just finished my last bottle.

    I am on-line now searching for the Little J, we have a little sunny bweather left.

    Haven't been to Suburban in a while, if I can't fine the J near me, I'll stop in friday night on the way to the GFs

    Just spoke to the local wine shop. They have the Little J white, I may go and grab a bottle tonite.

    He said they also have the Little J red--have you tried that?

    I drank a ton of Pinot Grigio this Summer as well. The Italians seem to be doing a better job with it these days. I really enjoyed them.

    Have not tried their red. South African reds are always interesting.

    The Little J white is just an inexpensive, every day wine. Hope you like it.

    Exactly what I've been drinking this summer - Sauv Blanc with a couple of ice cubes. It's a shame to put ice in wine, but that's why I've been drinking the Barefoot Sauv Blanc. Cheap, and a couple ice cubes doesnt hurt. Now, I wouldn't put ice in a New Zealand sauv blanc...

    Now that fall is returning, time to get back to the reds.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with a few cubes in a Sav Blanc or Pinot Griggio. Weird, the Bottle King near me only sells the Barefoot Sav in the 750 ml bottles, not the 1.5 L. Really creates cycle-time issues with having to uncork more often than I'd like to

    Can't wait for that first really crisp cool day to break open a bottle of red. I don't thing I've had any since May.

    I'm not a wine drinker (I injured my pinky and can't hold a glass with it sticking up), but my father in law used to slam the wine at family get togethers. Ex-cop, gruff/funny, used to spin the wine in the glass, sniff then take a sip, then act impressed and proclaim "hmm....flaccid, yet mundane" in his best aristocrat impersonation. Cracked me up every time.

    RIP Pops
