I am not fruity, but I can be dry and crisp and I'm a great accompaniment to dinner. Aged, somewhat mature. However I would not want to be confiscated and held to the end of the cruise.
I found some stores here where I can purchase some of these wines and I shall.
There is a vineyard here (no really) where the motto is, "where the grapes can suffer". They make some very decent wines. With some help from the U of M they developed a hearty vine that will withstand -35°. http://www.abvwines.com/
Thanks for all the info guys and gals. I cant wait.
Took a few minutes to sift through the hockey talk and winery's but I finally figured it all out.
Thanks again folks. I will update everyone when we return.
Oh BTW if you want to experience diving with sharks.. Walkers Cay, Bahamas. They have a shark feeding dive called the shark rodeo. Yes you are in the water unprotected over a 30 foot reef. They chum the water while your in and close to 100 sharks (black tip, carribean reef, bull) show up all around you. From what we are told because they do this 3 times a day in the same spot the sharks are more interested in the fresh fish then the people. I did this and can say its amazing that a 200lb beast will bump you out of the way to get at a fish scrap. Some brave folks (yes me included) took chunks of tuna in our hands (with guided supervision) and hand fed some of the smaller guys.
RE: 200lb beasts that will bump you out of the way to get at a fish scrap.
I experienced the same type of behavior at the Windjammer, except the weight range has been anywhere from 98 poinds to 350 pounds. Some were the blue hair species, the mullet species, and the juvenile members of almost all the species!
You know, Jude, sometimes you gotta just speak your mind; sorry for the diversion, and I'm glad you were able to sift through the menutia and get some benefit from the posts...it kind of reminds me of my college days when I'd fill that 'ol blue book with 90% filler and 10% substance.
