I'm not sure it's a personal bias against German Rieslings, David, so much as a personal preference for the dry Franco-Italian style of wines in general. Glass half-empty, glass half-full.
Point is, though, given the limits of the Netscape polling system, I tried to come up with four or five very broad generic terms, and encourage folks to reply with specific nominations.
Guess I could have thrown in "off-dry whites," but I wouldn't have wanted to go as specific as an individual variety. And as I said over there, if I have a bias, it's toward avoiding sweetness in summer sippers - to me, there's a fine line between sweetness and cloying.
Hey ... start a similar poll on this forum, and YOU come up with a list!
