Here is a surprise for wine snobs if any are reading Celsius, a local produce wine in Malta but should be available due to the EU open market banter. The 2004 is a superb, mellow, fruit filled but not overpowering wine with a gorgeous aroma (dont want to sound pompy but tanins and plummy aromas are the only way to describe it).

Everyone is raving about EVERYTHING ORLANDO from 2004 and 2001 so drink them all and get back to us with your review. Wine critics get paid to tell us but you guys sound like ....the proof will be in the pudding Slurp

i like to guzzle the odd bottle of red. These are some favourites that i recommend:

Casillero de Diablo, Shiraz, from Chile.
Simonsig, Cabernet Shiraz, from SA.
Alkoomi, Shiraz, from Aus.
Carmen from Chile.

At the moment i'm half way through a bottle of Penfolds Bin 58, well, not right at this moment as i'm sat at work, but you know what i mean

Quoting tway

I'm here sipping on a lovely Cabaret-Sauvignon and thought, hey!, maybe there are other winos who have sugestions for the next time I head to the liquor commission. This tasty bottle is from the MAN winery in South Africa. Delish! This follows the nice The Little Penguin that I finished up last night. What can I say--it's my weakness!

So...who's discovered what? Wine, beer, booze--go ahead and spill!

how about Shiraz?

All of these sound so good that I will have to go out and buy a few bottles of all of them....

My favorite Chardonay is by far Penfold's...and it really doesn't matter which Penfold's it is.

Favorite Red is a local wine (I live in Florida) called St Sebastians. Don't think that you can get anywhere other then in St. Augustine, where is made, but by far my favorite Red.

Ever since visiting Mendoza, I'm all about the Malbec! i also like a Montepulciano.
I don't feel like I'm really drinking wine when I drink white, it's kind of like a wine substitute for when you're hungover/it's too early in the morning to be drinking properly/eating fish!
I like Chenin Blanc if I'm drinkin white, and I'm partial to a bit of bubbly on occasion. €4 bottles of cava on the beach in barceloneta was my happy introduction to cheap sparkling wines.
Casillero del Diablo Cabernet Sauvignon is lovely too.
Mmm, I'd love a glass of wine right now, with some crackers and hummus and a little bowl of olives stuffed with anchovies...and a bag of cheese and onion tayto. Okay I'm going to stop now before I drool all over my keyboard and short circuit it
