JB's white wines are great too and included in their white varieties are Pinot Blanc and Clairette. I know I'm getting old because I savour and appreciate everything I do these days and drinking wine is no exception. Each sip seems to go to the back of my mouth, trickle off the sides of my tongue and slowly it is consumed and I love it. Mind you the same goes for Cooper's Stout. I find that everything I have enjoyed in my life is now much more appreciated as it happens. Even farting seems satisfying and cleaning out a cupboard and getting rid of junk, there's a bit of enjoyment in that, I must do some more.

Zinfandel is a red wine grape seldom seen in Australia (well, from my limited outlook anyway). I know that it is very popular in California but I have thought that the average Californian's taste in wine was a bit like the average Queenslander's (I did say AVERAGE so don't get too excited you West Coast and banana bending wine buffs) so hadn't given much thought to it. Some friends of ours have a winery over at Bethany and some time back they put in 3 rows of Zinfandel vines. Well, I really love it. You can't really drink just Merlot all the time. I guess, if you're anything like me, you go through stages and the Merlot stage has lasted for a while.
