I was stunned to notice that in bottle shops here, you can buy all kinds of truly shitty port for cheap drunks who want to get sloshed. I was raised on port being a classy drink for people that know their shit. It's full of flavour and I love it. Sad to see it wasted on cheap drunks, but I suppose it's bad quality grapes that deserve to be wasted and it's not much of a loss in the end.

God, I had to correct a lot of typos in this post. I am so gone.

Remarkably, not only is the answer yes, but I understand they're pretty good at some varieties too!

Hi Khan! I am very drunk! I have had five delicious glssses of Kiwi pinot gris, full of fruity spiciness, and now I am onto my fourth glass of Aussie port that is delicious and full of diverse flavours with a smooth texture.

Haha. I would if only I were still premium. Maybe I'll re-register as premium soon.

Fuck you! Correcting typos comes naturally to me! If I see a typo, I must correct it. I cannot believe I let one slide earlier. Bonnie caught it and quoted it for posterity.

I am so drunk right now, seriously.

Hey sorry guys, I had to sit in front of the TV and play the riff from Icehouse's We Can Get Together for three minutes on my mother's acoustic guitar.

Khan, Axver may or may not be drunk. We're trying to get confirmation, but nothing is clear.

That is, we have a rumor, but it's not confirmed.

Well, I sort of already knew they made wine in America - I've heard of good Californian stuff, for example. But I just, I don't know... I just needed to exclaim!

Well, I'm sure most people still view it as classy, and I think a lot of people are still unfamiliar with it. I certainly saw it as classy when growing up. Also delicious. It really is the party-in-your-mouth-and-everyone's-invited drink!

You're a lucky bastard. I tried to make it into an avatar, but the text didn't look right.
