          Definitely Iniskillin (sp?). Yummy Canadian iced wine. They sell it in dutyfree for SG $100 something and it's only $40 something USD on UA dutyfree!

              For Australian, I tend to swing towards Penfolds for red (Black Label, my favourite) and Yalumba for whites.

              Chilean - still testing la! On the whole I find them very "drinkable" quite unlike French wines. Don't ask me why, a matter of preference I guess.


              Ice wine - no, never tried. Have you? If you like sweet wines, there is one by Kendall Jackson - really syrupy sweet.

                  Found some info about it here.

                  http://wine.about.com/library/types/bl_icewine.htm

                  I've only drunk 2 bottles of it and the memory stays because it's the best tasting wine I've ever tried!

                  Not sure of the vintage tried and yes, it's only made from a particular type of grape otherwise it wouldn't be that particular type of wine.

                  It is rather expensive though.

                  Robert Mondavi also does a yummy muscato (muscadet?). Not sure about year because the bottle is not with me at the moment.

                    Australian is well known for their Tokays and Muscat for sweet wines tho I've tried none. kekeke
                    95 AUD for the top of their line, Campbell Rutherglen Tokay, couldn't make myself buy it.

                            I've not tried any, but for the Ozzie winneries, Campbel Rutherglen, Brown brothers are supposedly all quite good for their muscats. To each his own, the test is in its taste. Some people like this, others that. and I think I'm v picky

                            Visit winnery and find out

                              Sg's soo hot to do that. Seems the best to drink the wine at around 14-18degree celsius. Always feel the wine in Sg turns acidic quite fast.. kekeke maybe its just me. Heehee

                              I'm not particular about the grapes used, as long as it agrees with my tastebuds hehe
