The by-product of an excellent Marks & Spencer meal deal.
Firm, silky, fruity, a delight.
Acceptable enough, soft sweet fruit.
‘Bottled for Febvre at Alzey germany’. Nondescript bulk wine from Chile.
Wineonline Pot Luck using Febvre liquidation stock so thankfully we won’t have to face up to it again.
I liked this, big refined Cab Sav from Chile.
Winery Fact sheet:
Very nice blend from the Maipo Valley. Soft, earthy with a large mouthfeel. Slight touch of sediment. Complimented the M&S Mustard and Leek Chicken Pie Meal Deal we had with Amy & Amber who were visiting overnight.
From a bin end case from wineonline.ie
A first: wine specially selected by a Petrol Station which probably says more for Applegreen’s aspirations that my wine snobbery.
Very crisp, compact and tarty Sauvignon from the Valle Central in Chile.
Good party wine I guess.
One of a bring from Ian to his fifth decade bash.
Good write-up here:
From Aldi, been looking forward to this. For the money very quaffable.
£3.99, €6.39 here so not unreasonable price comparison given our brutal wine tax..
The Mirror Wine Correspondent described this in their article:
“Christmas wine wonders from Aldi for less than £5”
Gulp, all I had chilled was this number, a C from The Devil’s Cellar in Chile.
A blend of grapes from the Casablanca, San Antonio (62%) and Limari (38%) areas.
Despite my ABC prejudices, this wasn’t bad: buttery, slightly oaked structure, well presented, rich takeaway.
La Farra Prosecco Supmante.
Ian & Jean served this at Ian’s launch of
The Reluctant Cannibals in the Winding Stair bookshop.
Very dry, effervescent bang of an Apple Orchard in the mouth, very moreish. If the book is as good as this it’s a runaway, buy it now.

Nice and packed a punch @ 14%. Reaffirmed my belief, however, that the new world has quite a way to catch-up on the old World with regard to Pinots. We enjoyed this in Fade Street, for a super family post-wedding Georgian lunch. Followed by a nightcap in No Name Bar.
