The Donna Review
Sometimes a re-visit wines, especially those we have reviewed very early on on our journey.
So a 2020 and an Aldi classic – one we thought from our previous review a great wine especially at the price. So the bouquet on this wine is nice, not unpleasant at all. The taste does have a slight earthiness/smokeyness to it and there is a slight bitterness to it. But it is easy to drink and for $9.99 you really cannot fault it.
Interesting to look back at my first review of this wine in 2017 and see that my rating is exactly the same. Glad to see my photography has improved!

Man with no palate Review
Before Donna even started this blog, this wine was one of the first Aldi wines we ever had. And when we say this is an Aldi classic, the bench mark is this wine. So sentimentally this is an important wine to me when we review any wine. Initially this vinage of 2020 was slightly disappointing. But the more you drink it the more it grows on you. It becomes smoother and earthier, And I have always thought if you put another label on this as $20 – $30 in somewhere like Dan Murphys you still would not be disappointed. I just wish we had kept the first wine we had reviewed just to see how it matured.
