Two pieces of news gentlefolk.
First Tesco were kind enough to tweet about my newspaper recommendation of a rather tasty red which has not yet appeared on this website.
So, scroll down the page for details of that wine – which is joined by a commendation of an impressive, but slightly more expensive, white that would be terrific wine at Christmas time.
Secondly, Sainsbury’s warn us that their 25% reduction offer closes this coming Sunday and not on Monday as we were led to believe. The post in question has been amended but habitual last minute shoppers will need to take special note.
Looking ahead, there are some excellent Aldi wines for you to consider in the weekend post, so keep an eye open for them when they hit your Inbox.
Here, then, are those two extra wines
Long, smooth and rounded, it puts raspberry and damson centre stage, adds a dab of spice and a neat savoury edge, energises it all with lively acidity but keeps tannin levels to the bare minimum. (£9 at Tesco).
Using the largely unsung pinot blanc grape, it delivers clean, herbal influenced wine with apple, pear and fleshy peach fruit, depth, a burst of acidity and beautifully elegant balance. (£11.50 at the Wine Society)
