    Default As Lent begins this Wednesday (Ash Wednesday)...

    ....which means NO alcohol for me, for SIX WEEKS, I've cracked open a rather nice bottle of red to go with Sunday lunch (a lovely roast rib of beef with all the trimmings):



    Gorgeous!

    Thumbs up Superb red wine recco

    Had a bottle of this fantastic Argentinian red last night with some steak. In my opinion, Argentina produces the finest wines of the 'New World' countries, using its excellent quality of soil and warm climate to make some of the best red wine you can drink, and this one is no exception!

    It's a pure Cabernet Sauvingnon, so very densely-coloured, almost purple, in the glass - and a real big, jammy rich mouthful, packed full of fruit, silky smooth, and not overly oaked. Unlike some Australian varieties are. In fact, in comparison, this wine has much more structure and finesse.

    It comes in at £9.99, but such is the quality on offer here that you could easily pay £20 or more for similar, in a specialist wine merchant. It's a great glug, superb with barbecues, and comes highly recommended. So get along to your nearest Aldi, whilst stocks last!

    I've been buying a few slurps from Virgin Wines recently, whose service I have to say is almost second to none, and the quality of their selections really are top notch [trust me, I'm very fussy!]

    Anyway, I discovered this *truly superb* red wine, from Chile, which is the perfect accompaniment to all red meats, particularly barbecued steaks, and also mature cheeses. Honestly, read the description and reviews on the link below - you'll simply NOT find a richer or smoother tasting, silky-smooth mouthful of fruity alcoholic succulence!!

    Highly recommended, to the point that if you're a 'big red' wine lover, like me, you'd be CRAZY to deprive yourself of this.....

    It's an ABSOLUTE STONKER!
