After Xmas and New Year Wines From Your Local Supermarket

By  |  0 Comments

These juicy tipples are great for post Christmas and New Year relaxation, when all the pressure has subsided a little. And the best thing about them is that they’re available from your local Aldi supermarket, so you don’t need to wait for an online delivery. Enjoy!

Freeman’s Bay Sauvignon Blanc Blush, 12.5% abv, New Zealand

This delightful rosé bursts with all the flavours of the white version – passionfruit, gooseberries and peach. Plus you’ll love the additional touch of spice. £6.49.

Blütengarten German Blaufrankisch, 13% abv, Germany

German wines tend toward a palate that lies somewhere between dry and sweet and so they tend to have a wide appeal. This medium-sweet wine is made from Blaufränkisch grapes resulting in a pleasant, black cherry palate that is very easy to drink. £5.99

Castellore Sangiovese Appassimento, 13.5% abv, Italy

The Sangiovese grape produces a wine with a palate of intense spicy, red fruit combined with blackcurrant. Go to when you want to wind down with a mouthful of flavour. £6.99.

Champagne Monsigny Brut No III, 12% abv, France

Celebrate the New Year with equal parts of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier grapes in this fizz that reeks of sweet sherbet. The length and subtlety of the ‘lemony’ palate comes from aging in barrels for more than four years. £12.99

Exquisite Collection Cream Sherry goes great with Marks and Spencer’s Hand Decorated Black Forest Gateau (RRP £6, serves 10)

Exquisite Collection Cream Sherry, 18% abv, 50cl, Spain

Specially selected for Aldi is this gorgeous sherry that has a deep caramel colour with a raisiny and nutty palate thanks to the Palomino and Pedro Ximenez grapes. Great with any leftover snacks like nuts and olives. £6.00.
