Thread: Any kakis here drink wine besides photography?

    i tend to prefer old world wines and nowadays moving towards boutique wines.

    new world wines were once my fav, but those were the days

    my standards are italians esp the brunellos, barolos, babarescos, etc....

    not much of a white wine drinker though, cept a couple of familes.


    as for new world wines, esp from australia, i'd highly recommend Penfolds Grange series. Do a vertical, shouldn't be THAT much of a diff as compared to old worlds like the french.

    haha, a grange vertical? doesnt happen very often, nor for very little money.

    good grange is not bad, but id prefer a single vineyard guigal.

    I find that beer drinker and wine drinker are uniquely different. Of course you might say, the're also wine drinkers but notice how they tends to gobble down the whole wine bottle instead of the gurgle and phew stuff

    Hmmmm, pretty true. And I notice that smokers tend to prefer dry wines. Anyone agree on this??

    yup yup i really like Wine (Red Only)... especially the Old World Country - French : Red Wine Merlot, Bordeaux .... or Italy - Ice Wine.... The Ice Wine from Canada was too sweet for me. Cant defferential Wine or Beer which one better .... cox The "Wine" is for taste ... The "Beer" is for party + Fun.... Whatzzzuuuuup !! i like the Budwiser but Malaysia and Singapore one taste r diff. from UK, so i prefer UK one.... i found "Carrefour" (maybe spelling wrong) ... inside (basement) got 1 whole rack sell Bordeaux wine really a good place to buy + quite cheap oso ... beside this the Red Wine from Macau --- "Sand Bottle" also very good... the diff. was when u open the Wine u should let it "breathing" for 25 min. it was very important for the "breathing" time ... coz diff. wine ned a diff. breathing time to "wake-up" ... but 2 sad most of the seller in Singapore or Malaysia can't tell me about this (when i bought the wine and ask them about the "breathing" time. Bkt Batok got 1 wine bar (inside CSC - opposite the Polyclinic) just open, location look nice but dont know wat is the price ... If u organized any Wine event just let me know ,.... i sure like to join ... if the price not too high

    It's Schott Ziwesel or Oberglas, I can't remember.

    Ice wine which is marketed by Canadian winemakers is over reached and all hype.

    I prefer to stick to Riesling, Chardonnay and other red blends.

    Just to correct the spelling is Schott Zwiesel.

    There is a another brand which is called Mikasa glasses which are quite good as well.

    I just had the Australian Chardonnay white wine last nite. It's not dry and very easy to drink. Beginners will surely love it. I know I did.

    yea its not cheap.. thing about burgundy though, is somethings you can get a parcel offload that works out pretty well.

    crystal has a decent selection of burgundies, in the 80-120 price range.
