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”
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.
