    Default Recommend me a wine

    So I don't drink wine but I feel like I want to give it a try. Normally if I am having a afternoon/evening drink which is rarely I will have a strongbow I also don't mind a westcoast cooler and if I am having a girls night out then vodka is my drink although my last girls night ended with 1 drink before switching to chamomile tea! So I like sweet drinks but not sickly sweet, someone has suggested Fresita strawberry wine, has anyone had this? What's it like? Or what do you recommend?

    If you like sweet, go for a moscato.

    The Brown Brothers one is yum!

    Ps if u like ciders that Rekorderling brand is delish too!

    My mum used to buy this and we would sneak mouthfuls from the cask!

    I like a wine with a good 'crunch' so a sauv blanc is my poison.

    If you like a sweet wine I'd go a semillon or a moscato - although I find moscato to be sickly sweet

    Your taste sounds exactly like mine - I love sweeter wines but strongbow is my first choice. I don't mind moscato but the alcohol volume is really low in them, so I try to find slightly stronger ones. If I'm going to the trouble of drinking, I like to get a little buzz at least

    When you're cruising the bottleshop, just look for things that say 'late harvest' - this means the grapes have been left on the vine to ripen for longer so are sweeter. Alkoomi late harvest Riesling is a nice one, I'd recommend more brands but most of the ones I know are WA wines so I don't know if it's relevant to you!

    I'm not a sweet wine drinker but I think Moscato is sickly sweet.
    As a PP said, a late harvest Riesling will be sweet, Chenin Blanc, Pinot Grigio all good.

    If I were you, I'd go to a few wine tastings and see what tickles your fancy!
