    Red - I like Church Block. It's a blend that isn't too heavy and is very consistent over the vintages.

    White - Catalina Sound Sav Blanc is a lovely one under $20.

    I had a really nice Pinot Grigio the other day but can't for the life of me remember the name.

    I wouldn't say it's sweet, it might be fruity depending on lots of factors. It's usually a more light-medium bodied red. It is very receptive to the processes it undertakes when being made so has a broad range of descriptors. Try a good bottle like Farr Rising (not overly expensive for a good pinot) and you'll get hooked if you don't mind a red

    Some good pinots to try might be, Cold******, Freycinet, Kooyong estate. Well worth trying.

    Another Brown Brothers fan. My favourite is Dolcetto & Syrah. Sweet, lightly sparkling and served chilled.

    My white of choice is Four Sisters Sauvignon Blanc Semillon , about $16. It's a nice light, crisp wine, just the way I like it

    *I can haz typos*
