I am... I'm more into French Reds. Whites - alright (occasionally a lil sweet). The other countries that I have tried is of cos the Aussie wines (think they captured the largest S'pore share of out wine market). Other than that, I have not really tried any other countries.

Anyone care to share their tastes?

Reason why I prefer French is cos their wine tend to be less acidic, tastes more mellow without being overpowering. And alot of the have a certain wet wood, peary, peachy tastes.

I am not really a connoisseur in wine but for me I think I prefer Ozy wine especially the Shirac, Merlot.

Lets discuss about wine drinking.
Fave wine

Henry's Drive Shiraz reserve, Pathaway South Australia. Ideally 2002 vintage...

Notes:
Full bodies and lush nature with strong blackberry fruit taste and oaky charcoal taste. Hints of mocha. Best part of it is that the distinctly peppery taste of shiraz grapes is fairly lowkey.. What i really like is the velvety smooth feel of the wine, with nicely mellowed tannins. Only fault is the lack of a lingering finishing, with a more subtle end on the tastebuds

Easy drinking, easy on the wallet, what more can you ask for? :heart:

I've tried the Fattoria Aldobrandesca Aleatico Toscana (think the emblem is a griffin)

Sweet red. usually available in half-bottles (500ml). used to be available in DFS but heard lately DFS doesn't carry it anymore, or may be out of stock.
