Now, i like a beer as much as the next man (Half for the lady ;)), but occasionally i succumb to the dark side, usually red but here i have a fine vintage Chardonnay (£4 from Asda :eek:)

I'm kind of a wine snob. I will drink the cheap stuff, but always have some great wine for special occasions.

Currently drinking this:

Miner Family is expensive but amazing. I went to the vineyard in Napa and was able to drink a whole bottle of their limited run Benedetto.

Another favorite from Napa that I can rarely afford:

Another from the cheap and cheerful range (3 for £10 at Asda) but it's a solid red, quite nice and a welcome tipple after a successful quiz win at my rugby club :)

For reds I'm a sucker for Ripassos and Amarones from Italy. In whites I prefer lighter, half-dry things like Rieslings and Chardonnays.

But in general I do really like wine. :cool:

Last one I bought, something like 8 bucks at the grocery store. Don't ever buy it, it tastes real bad. Really acidic and not pleasant at all.

That's what happens when you're on a student budget. I can't afford decent wine due to the amount of tax here in Québec. (Good wine starts at 15$)

Shade Winery. Only a few miles from my house. Excellent wine, and even better people making it.

Emiliana Merlot (year 2010 and others)

DSC_0030.jpg


Description:
Dense, dark and purple, this wine is packed with blackberry and plummy fruit flavours. The nose has the peppery/herbal edge so typical of Chilean Merlot and the palate shows dark fruits and ripe cherry flavours with a hint of chocolate and coffee.
