Feeling thirsty? Help is at hand. On Monday, March 26th Lidl’s Spring Wine Tour will hit the shelves. Good wines, great prices and a few that particularly caught my eye……
Champagne Bissinger Brut Rosé – £14.99 – Relatively dry for a rosé, well balanced and surprisingly complex – clearly some development in bottle. I’ll definitely be buying some.
Soave Classico Corte Allodola 2016 – £5.99 – Fine, peachy fruit, unexpectedly tasty, dry Soave
Tokaji Amethyst Furmint 2016 – £4.99 – Astonishing price for a crisp, fresh, mouthwatering, dry white
Les Hauts d’Oriet Grenache Blanc 2016 – £5.99 – Refined, scented, delicious, dry white Rhone
Cepa Lebrel Rioja Rosado 2016- £5.49 – Rather good, dry rosé from Rioja. Even better with food.
Tour de Castres Graves 2013 – £9.99 – Fine, scented red Graves. Pricey but still great value.
Vinsobres Domaine Croze-Brunet 2015 – £7.99 – Impressive, flavoursome red from the Rhône
Camino Nuevo Joven Ribera del Duero 2016- £5.49 – Juicy, perfumed, dry, just so gluggable.
Agramont Gran Reserva Navarra 2011 – £6.99 – Lovely, mature, complex Spanish red
Tokaji Edes Szamarodni – £7.99 50cl – Wonderful value for a tasty, luscious sweet white from one of the best sweet wine producing regions in the world. If you like Tokaji, buy as much of the 2013 vintage as you can.
