G for German

And G for Gewurtztraminer.
Mmm.
G for Good.

And Thelonious rocks.

Gewurtz = Thumbs up.

Still partial to a Sauv or a Riesling myself though. Any more specific details on that particular wine, TR?

hutumthumo, salil:
nothing special -- it was a 'lucien albrecht' from alsace -- a standard at the watson's wine cellar here in hk.
(tx for stopping by, btw.)

heh heh:
a combo made even better by the lateness of the night, the breeze, the balcony, and the powerpoint sent off to the coauthor! (it came back soon enough.) but you're right, nice combination -- smooth, fun, intelligent, and a touch misterioso :-)

km:

W for Watson's; W for wonderful.

Haven't tried too many Alsaces. I find myself very partial towards the Southern whites. If you can get a hold of it at some point, I'd highly recommend the Lawson's Dry Hills Gewurtz (2004) from Marlborough. As well as their Sauv and Riesling. :)

[Still not legal to drink in the US. Ah well, 2 more months until I'm back East]

trying to get me into trouble, are you?
you're right -- marlborough county whites can be quite nice. although a little cloying at times.

Wish I could post an intelligent comment on the matter, but cheap Indian rum burnt off my taste buds when I was young and I never could develop an appreciation for fine wines.
