agreed. many more varieties that all have different tastes and personalities, where white wines really have small differences in maybe 2 or 3 categories (well in my humble opinion). I actually can't drink white wine at all, feels like I'm drinking cool-aid.
I like red, but it does not like me.
Fuck you, OP. Pinot Grigio is THE only wine.
I hate white wine. It always feels like it is stripping the enamel off of my teeth - even the good stuff, or it is toooo sweet.
Well, I so like a bottle of champers now and again.
I prefer vinegar.
I like an American Sauvignon Blanc. Light and crisp.
Agreed. Nothing like a glass of red zin (or a solid zin-based blend) at the end of the day.
Although, when it's hot outside a nice cold glass of Chardonnay or Souvignon Blanc hits the spot.
Red wine is more complex, but that doesn't mean white wine doesn't have its pleasures.
Monkey pack him rizla pon the sweet dep line.
The line broke, the monkey get choke
I agree that there are fewer types of white wines, but the best of them are quite tasty.
I'm just after having a glass of red. Not so keen on rosé but love pinot grigio.
Wine-drunk is the best drunk.
A true French Chablis can be great. (White wines are often labeled as "Chablis" when they are not.)
Some lovely whites are complex, multi-layered and quite good. Like reds, just follow some simple rules: ABC - anything but Chardonnay; sweet whites only belong with dessert; and, it must be properly chilled. Unlike reds, whites do not get better with age, so pay attention to vintage.
My hang up is that it doesn't bother me at all to drink a white that comes from a screw-top bottle, but my red must be properly corked. I know that's just a fallacy, but since a lot of wine drinking is psychological anyway, I can't help but think poorly of a screw-top red. And don't get me started on wine in a box.
In very warm summer months some of the light Italian whites are very refreshing.
Brunello is my favorite
Anything but chardonnay is silly advice. Chablis and Burgundy are all chardonnay.
Well, R20, then why do they call them Chablis and Burgundy if its all the same? Oh wait, because dumbasses like you will drink anything. Nevermind.
I am drinking a glass of red from a bottle that was opened and sitting in the fridge for a week. It's not right, but it's okay.
Red wine gives me purple teeth after one glass, so I can't have it out in public. I have to enjoy it at home. Luckily I do like white though, just nothing too sweet. And dry rose is wonderful during the summer (and doesn't stain).
