Gewürztraminer tastes really like a vegetable.

The Alsatian one is more complex in flavour than the Riesling.

Sure. I belive you. Why would you came on some small forum and bragg about your money? That would make a really pathetic person, possible with no assets at all. It must be true you are rich and famous. lol!

Use an image resizer. There are a few online ones findable through Google and if you post on a phone, there are free apps.

Rotkäppchen

It's not expensive and very drinkable.

White wine: Montana Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, from New Zealand.
They have perfect conditions for growing their grapes - best white wine ever. [I have not seen it in Poland though :( ] - Sainsbury, Tesco, Super Valu - IRL, UK; Monoprix Fr.

Red wine: any Médoc with a French customs label on the top of the bottle. Carrefour, Netto, and larger Biedronka. Waitrose, Sainsbury, Super Valu - IRL, UK.

Actually, most red wines with French customs labels are a good bet in Poland, come to think of it!

I have seen Marlborough wine in Germany. I have to taste it sometime.

Rarely a sauvignon blanc dud comes out of Marlborough. Chile produces some very high quality sauvignon blancs as well. A few months ago I had a sb from South Africa that more than held its own. Kim Crawford winery out of Marlborough makes a sb that has a strong grapefruit note that I really like--if you come across it in Poland give it a try. Pair it with salmon and you might combust.

Last week I had a Massaro Del Fondo Apassimento 2019 from the Puglia region in Italy. Primitivo grape was the dominant grape. Had very juicy berry and cherry notes with a certain tanginess I find in many of the apassimentos and governos I've had. Personally, I love Italian wines--especially those using dried grape techniques.

As I'm writing this I'm imbibing, no, poetically drinking a 2019 Domaine Chanson Pere et Fils Chablis. This wine is just damn good. It has the minerality of a champagne and acidity that brings the mouth happily alive. I'm getting a pear and apple note. The texture is full...and the minerality, man oh man, the minerality.

This is one to buy again and again.

I opened last weekend Pommery Dry Elixir. I can recommend it to anyone who's Brut is too acidic. Very interesting champagne for the visit of adult children. Prost.

I am not a great fan of sparkling wines but if I was to chose one I would go with an Alsatian cremant.
Alien 21 | 5,274

Yes, "methode champenoise" is also used in the production of cremant.

The best German Red I've ever tasted is the Trollinger grape from near the Stuttgart region of Baden-Wuerttemberg, more Baden than Wuerttemberg, if I'm not mistaken "zwischen Wald und Rebe" ('twixt forest and vine).

I like white sweet German wines, they are very good and underrated.

Not in the US! Here, Trollinger's a relatively unknown quantity, whereas Liebfraumilch or Gewuerztraminer are a dime a dozen.

Trollinger's

Sounds suspicious, like wine for trolls. Definitely not for me.

See #31

Everyone on PF:
Last time in Poland I got a gift.
Bethlehem Cellar, Medicamentum,Stellenbosch,South Africa, 2014, Btl. Nr. 5774.
Blessed are you, Hashem, our G-d, King of the universe, Who creates the fruit of the vine.
Haggada. etc.

Need some explanation.
What is it? Kosher Wine. Never seen before

South Africa has some fine kosher wines, as Johannesburg has a rather sizable Jewish population, of whom many are observant.

Regarding #31, I can't agree with you here. I find the taste in fact overly fruity.

Tirol.

Ooops, the same as troll. I am still haunted by bad memories connected with Tirol people.

@Lyzko regarding #31
I will taste it once more on the next opportunity.

fine kosher wines

My experience of kosher wines has been very good.

I have never tasted a poor one.

Quite, Milo!
Kedem Sweet is one of the bettter ones, at least here in the US.
Dry kosher Reds are also known, though far less popular in my experience.

French wine is the best, but outside of France is poor value for money.

If you don't live in France, I would go for Australian as best, then American and some South American wines.
Italians and Spanish do not export their best wines, they are even worse than the French for saving their best wines for the home market!
