I'm not talking about the Australian wines, I'm talking about the good antipodean folks who used to be prolific posters here. A few years back, I could always post on a topic, go to bed, and count on my opinions being vetted by pauly or aussie or TORB (to name just a few).

Where are these guys?

All kidding aside (I assume you're kidding), from TORB's website, it appears Ric was having health problems in 2008 and he took leave for an undetermined period, and it does look like his website hasn't been updated since 2008. Ric, if you're lurking, hope all is well with you.

Hey Bman.

We have two - a girl (4 1/2) and a boy (almost 3).

Drinking??? Summer has just arrived, so lots of riesling (local and German), white burgundy/chablis, pinot noir, pinot gris (some nice stuff coming out of New Zealand now), bubbles, plenty of beer......

How have you been and what are YOU drinking?

Aussie, what Oz rieslings would you recommend, keeping the German styles in mind?


Most Aussie riesling is dry, dry, dry - quite unlike the majority of German riesling (trockens aside). New Zealand has a habit of producing off dry riesling more akin to the German norm.

The Aussie rieslings I buy are predominantly from the Clare or Eden Valleys in South Australia. Petaluma, Grosset, Mesh, Leo Buring "Leonay", and Orlando Steingarten are some of the best picks. Not sure what distribution is like overseas.

Thanks, I'll keep an eye out. My wife won't drink anything sweeter than a kabinett.

Good work Aussie - all my best to D.

We're living in Guatemala now, until 2012 (though I'm in Ottawa for the next 12 days). Drinking lots of South American stuff but I brought several cases from my cellar with me and have been able to buy some other good stuff from various airport duty-frees....
