Paulita, Winemakers Selection, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2013, Chile

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.

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”

The Devil’s Chardonnay. Concha y Toro, Reserva, 2012, Chile. La Farra Prosecco Spumante. The Reluctant Cannibals

20131004-094906.jpgGulp, 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.
