Lidl wine offers
Following the very successful wine tasting hosted by Lidl's master of Wine - Richard Bampfield, we get his personal updates on what is good at Lidl! The latest is:
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 - £5.99 - Fine, peachy fruit, unexpectedly tasty, dry Soave
Tokaji Amethyst Furmint - £4.99 - Astonishing price for a crisp, fresh, mouthwatering, dry white
Les Hauts d’Oriet Grenache blanc - £5.99 - Refined, scented, delicious, dry white Rhone
Cepa Lebrel Rioja Rosado - £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 - £7.99 - Impressive, flavoursome red from the Rhône
Camino Nuevo Joven Ribera del Duero - £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.
