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:
You will have noticed how empty the Lidl wine shelves have looked over the last couple of weeks……….
Here are my favourites from the new selection:
Vernaccia di San Gimignano - £7.49 - Classic Italian dry white, perfect balance and harmony
Fiano Beneventano - £5.99 - Not quite as fine as above, but still lovely dry white at the price
Then 3 Austrian dry whites that are exemplary, fresh and mouthwatering - do try them, they are from excellent producers and normally more expensive than this
Gruner Veltliner Terraces -£8.99
Gruner Veltliner Granit - £7.99
Riesling Neubern Pfaffl - £8.99
Less dry white!
Gewurztraminer Riesling Pilliterri Estate, Canada - £9.99 - Lovely blend of grapes that produces a strikingly fruity white, perfect for serving with lightly spiced dishes such as Thai Green Curry.
Vespral Reserva, Terra Alta, Spain - £5.49 - Good flavour and balance from a Spanish wine region that deserves to be much better known
Douro Tinto Azinhaga de Ouro, Portugal - £4.99 - Portuguese reds are simply wonderful value…..
Cimarosa Winemaker’s Selection, Chile - £7.99 - Bold, gutsy Chilean red
