These talks about fine red wine.

Is there something similar to Portuguese Porto wine? rather different from the mainstream.

You guys really dislike the French...

I really fail to understand this dog and cat affair between the English and France<< Quote


No  GD  Not at all, to say that Australian wine is excellent does not mean we dislike
the French. Many Australian wine producers ARE French.


The old antipathy between the UK and France dates back to the 18th century
when there was a global competition to establish either English or French as
a global language. France wanted the world to speak French believe it or  not.

Cheers !

Fellow eonophiles

Gosh!
and yes, Australian wines now cost more than French!

Actually, Australian wines are value for money. One thing about Australian wines though, the bigger wineries tend to buy grapes from different vineyards with different soil conditions. For example, Brown Brothers might buy Shiraz ( proper pronunciation is Sea-Rah) from throughout Victoria and chuck them all together. Australians tend to mix their grapes a bit more than others, Cabernet Merlot is quite popular these days.

That said, some of the best wines I've tasted are from California, specifically Napa Valley. Did you know New York has some old vineyard :)

France? Well oenophiles still queue up for this season's Beaujolais Nouveau, as soon as it comes out, to be enjoyed with a hearty Bouillabaisse, but cestmoi likes it with a crusty, peppery french onion soup. Ooh lala...

Enjoy in moderation, drink it for the taste of it.
