Wine

I am not a wine expert but have found few European wines to my taste, we usually get the New world wines from aldi which are far more to my taste.

Any opinions on this topic ?

I like the occasional bottle of Ozzie plonk from Aldi.

It's fairly cheap and it tastes good to my uneducated palate.Smiley

Ah yes.... the memories..  Pusser`s Tot...   ( or grog )  what a sad day that was, when it stopped.. and we only got 3d a day in lieu ... Cry  You could get loads of small favours done for "sippers"... and you could swap a weekend duty, for a full tot...  so you could go home to the girlfriend/missus/etc ...but you couldn`t get anyone to do that for 3d  ! !

Re: Wine

One of my favourite wines is a Merlot and I particularly like the Californian ones.

 

I also enjoy a Rioja - a great Spanish wine.

Re: Wine

I've never really developed a taste for wine, I'll drink most whites, but reds I can't stand, guess I'm just a beer sort of guy... Smiley

Re: Wine

One thing most people who drink wine can agree on is that the range and quality of wines we can now get is far superior to the limited, expensive, and disgusting stuff available 40 years ago.

I Suspect the improvement was due Australia, New Zealand and many other countries producing wine thus giving competition to European wines.

On holiday a few years ago in Europe we went into a large supermarket looking for new world wines and none were available despite a large range of wines all were from European countries.

Re: Wine

We too have switched to malbec. Lovely, full bodied wine. Not a common type, but well worth the look. Try La Finca. Great value and full bodied.

Incidentally, I too like real ales - full bodied with loads of taste, not lager! Lips are sealed
