(Rian, I'm looking at you) Can anyone recommend a nice wine (not red, I get migraines) to go with the standard turkey/stuffing/mashed potato church basement dinner? Our family is doing the traditional Harvest Supper with Jackie's family this weekend, and last year we saw people carrying in their own wine. Brilliant! I like Alice White, Yellowtail - easy to find, not expensive Australian whites, but would consider something different. Jackie's looking for a Shiraz, her new fav, but I want a white. Any ideas? I hear good things about a couple of New Zealand wineries and am intrigued by some of the Spanish whites I've seen lately.
Here's what we're going with. Greg at the wine store recommended it - a Sardinian white, fruity, not too oak-y. One of his favourites right now, I'll let you know how it turns out. He's heard good things about the Cloudy Bay, but doesn't have it. He did agree, though, that the grassy New Zealand Chardonnays might be too light for turkey. Great with salads, seafood, egg dishes... I came across a Yangarra Park Chardonnay downstairs too (oops, how'd we not drink that?) that has a price sticker on it from the grocery store. Cheaper, but an online search suggests it's probably just as good. We'll see.
Oh, and this is Bristol, VT
