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:


 

At last!  The new Lidl Wine Tour hits the shops on Thursday, July 25th - my favourites in the selection below.
 
Dry Whites
Sauvignon blanc Gran Reserva, Chile - £7.49 - Fine, dry Chilean Sauvignon, perfect for goat’s cheese or feta salad.
Outlook Bay PGR, New Zealand - £6.49 - Lovely NZ blend of Pinot Grigio, Gewürztraminer and Riesling - not totally dry, but fruity, flavoursome and highly moreish.
Sassi del Mare Vermentino Toscana - £7.99 - Lovely, refined Italian dry white from the Vermentino grape that is more normally associated with Sardinia’s top whites.
Haraszthy Sir Irsai - £6.49 - Interesting Hungarian grape variety that produces fruity, dry whites with a noticeable spiciness.
Gewurztraminer Reserva, Chile - £7.49 - Impressive example of Gewürztraminer from Chile, off-dry and perfect with spicier summer dishes.
Dry Rosé
Rosato Toscana - £5.99 - Perfect, pale, dry summer rosé
Kamocsay Ákos Pinot Noir Rose - £5.99 - Delicate, dry Hungarian rosé
Red Wines
Goldridge Shiraz, Australia - £7.99 - Flavoursome, spicy Barossa Shiraz, perfect for the BBQ.
Sassi del Mare Maremma - £7.99 - Full-bodied Italian red from Tuscany’s fashionable coastal vineyards.
Bellanova Malvasia Nera - £6.99 - Unusual but impressive, gutsy red from the heel of Italy
The Second Fleet Shiraz - £7.99 - Good full-bodied Shiraz from Australia’s top McLaren Vale region
Stay thirsty!
