    what have you drunk lately, loved lately and would recommend?

    I'll start, my name is babyla and I'm a sucker for a forest floor Pinot! Tonight I'm drinking a central otago Pinot, chalkboard 2011. Very quaffable!

    I love my moscato. I buy a banrock station - it's a lovely wine.

    I'm currently having my last glass of Stella Bella Sauv Blanc. It's a Margaret River one, and I've found I tend to like Margaret River ones in the past, no matter where they're from. It's really quite nice, and quite boozy too. lol.

    I'm a dry whites girl... Sauv Blanc and Chardonnay are prob my faves, but I don't mind a sparkling either, but not sweet fruity ones. Ew.

    I'm not too fussy though... my palette isn't clever enough to pick up many differences between various wines... so I just usually go by the bottle, the price and the alcohol content (if it's less than 7 standards per bottle, I put it back. lol).

    Later on in the night, I have some Sauv Blanc with a dog on the bottle. Might come back then to add my opinion. (Don't blame me if it's not legible).

    I prefer a dry white too and bottles with dogs on them always go down well

    I'm more a red drinker but trying to expand my palette to a riesling lately.

    Hello fellow wine drinkers!

    I love a dry white and even a few bubbles, but like you ladies not fruity.

    In winter though (actually any time) I love a red, especially a blend. Love a church block!!
