White With Attitude

The world would be a very dull place if we all just drank Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. However approachable these wines might be, there are times when I would treat myself to a wider range of flavors and aromas. There are plenty of more obscure whites worth trying, and my recommendation for the day will be - German Riesling.

German Riesling once ruled the world. Fresh and light in style, they are perfect for drinking at anytime of the day. Strangely, it has been overshadowed by other increasing popular whites such as Semillon, Viognier and Verdelho (pardon on my poor research, that's all I know :P). One special identity of Riesling for one who has ever tasted, is it's slight tinge of dry sweetness. it has a subtle, fragile flavor, that leaves a hint of bitter, moments after savoring. Perhaps, sweet dreams is over-rated over here, but the delicate-scented white certainly possess an attention-grabbing floral aroma.

Remember the first time you ever tried wine? You probably thought it was disgusting and slightly bitter. How things might have changed? I partake it with Riesling, my first bitter-sweet love. Dare my take for white with attitude.

a good summer wine, a bit sweeter, was always a liebfraumilch. Also, by the water in the summer, for a long day, i do admit to a guilty pleasure of a good Sangria..

Very good suggestion. Here's to ya.

cabernets and lingeries, i always say....californian and australian mostly, but a beautiful sexy woman in lingerie can be from anywhere,,,,

Do u mean me?

Who else....?
mind you i know a few here in Toronto (see my pics), but your gorgeous, and i love the clothes selections, very sexy.

WELL do tell.....

You are so right. The first time you taste wine, beer or any thing like that you do not like it. It takes some getting used to.

Try an Alsatian gewurztraminer if you're looking for a white wine with some spice...

yeah................nice<br />
did you know, I am now making my own wine? The vines are young, planted in 2007 but my 2010 was very reported by my picky friends....<br />
I am producing an Italian varietal red....Barbera. ,,,, medium body, very fruit forward type of wine......produced 56 bottles in 2010, but only about half that much last year...

Wow... u're a genius!

no.....just did some research and have the space so, with some help from a lot of people have my 30 vine vineyard going.......

any body that says they do not like wine is mistaken. They have simply not tasted a wine they like............and out taste do change and expand......<br />

Sweetness belongs in Mosel wines like bubbles belong in Champagne.
