Last night was a Bianco del Veneto - light and crisp with a refreshing fruitiness and a Concha Y Toro 'Trio' Merlot, Carmenere, Cabernet Sauvignon blend - full bodied, smooth and fruity and amazing value at £6.95 (if you get it from me!)

Just got to decide what to have with the pheasant tonight now

We are Wolf Bass fans too especially the Chardonnay. Our white wine preference is still the New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs such as Nobillo, Oyster Bay or Montana. although for a special occasion we like a Pouilly Fume. For red our favourites are the Chilean Merlots and occasionally a Fleurie. Chateau David, a claret, from Sainsburys is one of our favourites too.

I know I will take a lot of stick for this, but we cant get on with Spanish wine but then it is down to ones personal taste. The reds are OK..ish but the whites .. Oh! We drink them, but only because there is very little else here.

I guess the real test is what we have for Christmas Lunch. We wlll have a Fleurie and a Pouilly Fume, preceeded by Piper Heidseck Blue label Champagne which is incredibly good value at Sainsburys at the moment

Great choice of vino there, alcanadakid. Most of my favs are Australian too, plus a french Chateau n du pape of course. I think on the big day we'll be having a WB chardonnay, or maybe a Chablis. Then in the evening its got to be C n du Pape, all washed down with a glass of Port .
I too am not a massive Spanish wine fan, they just dont seem to be full enough for me. Tho Jane recomended a great Sons Brolils a couple of years ago.

I forgot about Chablis Jiggggy, that is also one of our favourites. Pricey but worth it

I had a nice bottle of Little Penguin shiraz at the weekend. £5.99 from Somerfields. For the price its unbeatable. Its like WB YL only cheaper. They do some great wines at Somerfields. You usually get the same ones discounted, cut from about £8 to £4. So if youre clever (like me ) you get a good discount all week!

Colin managed to make me far too many Mojito's last time I was in Nostalgia !!

Great at the time but the next day was a different story
