So I have a question, someone gave me three bottles of "Gran Viņa Sol, 2003". If left in the bottle for years more will it taste better?

Raymond, I am a red wine man myself but my understanding is that white wines don't improve in the bottle. It probably won't deteriorate but why wait? Get it down yer neck!

Incidentally the producers, Torres of Spain, produce one of my favourites, "Sangre de Toro" (or Bulls Blood in you like).

Ah, so it doesn't matter! (Eyes glow..)

Does anyone in here mix wine with anything? Or is this the Crystal Glass Crowd?

Drink is a great thing.. :)

Hi,

You'll find that no one on WW drinks at all, except for the following specific reasons:

1) To forget a "massive drop in AdSense earnings since this morning".

2) To justify/excuse redirecting image hotlinkers to a speciality hard pr0n site, especially if said hotlinkers are ethically-challenged teens on MySpace/Xanga/...

Great summer cooler:
Cheap wine (I recommend Manischewitz Blackberry) mixed with Diet 7Up, in a tall glass of ice.

If you don't have a sweet tooth try a white wine spritzer, which is white wine and soda water.

(is soda water the same in the US as the UK)?

Cheaper wines are usually best drunk within a few years of the vintage date. Some expensive wines can last for decades, but I'm guessing this isn't one of those.

Since you've got three bottles, crack one open and see if you like it. If so, drink the other two as well. If not, pawn them off on your friends. :)

Only if you bite the tops off or drink it by the pint...

(Over in high-class Edinburgh we'd only gently nibble at the tops...)
