Quoting tway

My sister once had a bottle called Fat bastard. Anyone every heard of it...?

Yes lve seen Fat Bastard and also one called Auld Tart!!

So l am alone in the liking whites??? Well it doesnt stain your teeth and mouth (which is an extremely attractive look!!) Whites are lovely on a really hot day!

But l am going through a red phase at the moment! I must really branch out and try some other country varieties instead of just Australian!

Im liking this little wine club! Great idea T!!

I would recommend the Chateau de Chateaulay. The 1976 if you can get it. A damn fine year.

Goes exceedingly well with oysters, duck l'orange and pickled onion monster munch.

No, you' re not!!

I prefer a dry white from time to time. I prefer a Chardonnay.

I have a very cheap Spanish white, that I buy from the local supermarket, which makes it affordable to drink. But I am now drinking a couple of bottle from South Africa, that I got when I left my previous job.
