Breaking News – More price reductions

I told you last week about Sainsbury’s current “25% off when you buy six” deal but here is a quick update on a short term promotion at Majestic.

In England and Wales you need to buy a total of six bottles (mixed any way you like) to secure the new discounts but, in Scotland, the offer price can apply to single bottle purchases.

Here is my top tip from the promotion.

As usual, click on the picture for an enlarged image that will help you track down the wine in a crowded display.

A classic Spanish grape moves east

Majestic Albarino Web postWe normally associate albarino with Iberia but this is a version from the Aude region of Southern France, made by the first producer to grow the variety in that country.

Enjoy, then, all that classic melon and greengage texture in 2015 Laurent Miquel Albariño (£8.66 – instead of £12.99 until 29 August – at Majestic and 13% abv) but here there is a saline edge to the savoury finish and an engaging pithiness to the freshness too.

Morning Brian,
I’ve just returned from a week in Dubai.
While there I had a bottle of Indian Sauvignon Blanc
The name of the wine was:
Art Collection 2013 Nandi Hills
Have you come across this before and if so, where can it be purchased?
Thanks and best wishes
Chris Evans

Chris …….This wine does appear on Evington’s website ( and Amazon sell some of the range but, apparently, not currently the sauvignon blanc. Hope you had a good time in Dubai …………. Best …………… Brian
