Being such a red fan, I need to open up more to whites. Next trip will have a white at the checkout….
Since you are jetsetting all over the globe, I decided to watch all the episodes again in random order.
Have had a couple of Australia Sauvignon Blancs and have tasted Semillon in Australia, but have never bought a bottle. Will need to focus more on whites the next time I make it “down under”. I’m a sucker for the peppery Shiraz though:-)
This Episode got me salivatin’ & slobberin’ big time!!! Those Vinos
I love watching these early episodes with Australian wines. Got to love Australian Riesling!
I just started exploring the world of white wines this week. I’d had a few pinot grigios and chardonnays, and the few rieslings I had never spoke to.
This week I’ve sampled muscat canelli, two rieslings, gewürtztraminer, alboriño and a blend that included a bit of semillon.
Wow! I have been doing myself a disservice by not getting more into whites before now. I never disliked them (or dissed them), reds were just what grabbed me. I’ll definitely be picking up some more alboriño and gewürtztraminer, and want to continue trying semillon.
Great episode. One of my favourites… I like the way you in a short space of time at the end got the message across. Trynewthings!Great! Semillon IS huge in Australia. And they are great. And Leeuwin IS a top knotch winery, no doubt about that.
Funny as I go through these oldies the differences from the present show, 1st, the length of the show, Gary said he did not want to sniff for too long…now he jabbers for more than this entire show was, no mention of prices and if you look he did not rinse between wines..may not be as important as with reds but…have not had that many Aussie whites, (did have a Leewin Art Series Chard, was great but too expensive) will seek out. winelx.com
Jon, a little late as a reply, but winesearcher.com or winebid.com would be 2 places to find this wine which I also have tried and it was great..too expensive I would add. winelx.com
Nice. Leeuwin makes some great wines.
Exploring the white side of wines is amazing. Especially when it comes to food!!!
You don’t know what you love until you try it, love the quote Gary
Awesome show. Have to say Italy is where its at for obscure white varietals
line of the day – ‘When I went to a rugby match in Australia people were drinking Semillon in the stands’
Short episode urging people to try different white varieties. Nothing crazy…yet
