The Donna Review
Sadly we had this with a chicken dish (last minute change of dinner plan) and it would have been so much nicer with a beef dish. But that said, this is a lusciously deep wine and full of fruit flavours – although there is a slight clay like finish on the mouth.
I opened this a while before we drank it and I think the air helped to bring out the flavour and also mellowed the tannins.
Wine Rating: 3.5/5
Man with no Palate Review
Not exactly sure where to start on this. For example do I mention that we had this with a really yummy Risotto, that this wine really didn’t accompany. Or do I mention that for Aldi this is an expensive wine, but everything is relative. That all said this could be one of those absolute classics. To me it tastes totally different to anything else, its not smooth, but is really tasty, full of fruit (thinking black cherry).
Would be delicious with Chorizo, prawns and a squeeze of lemon – role on summer!
